How Important is Airport Access to Rural Businesses?

Fred Gale and Dennis Brown

Rural America/ Rural Development Perspectives, 2000, vol. 15, issue 3

Abstract: Poor access to air service is a concern for many rural communities, as evidenced by a nationwide sample of manufacturing businesses. Manufacturers in the most rural areas are more likely than others to say that airport access is affecting their ability to compete. Inadequate airport access is one of the top five problems with location cited by manufacturers in the most rural counties. The use of outside technical expertise and location in the West South Central region also increased the probability of citing access problems.
