    Abstract

    The objective of this paper is to study and estimate origin-destination (O-D) city-pair passenger air traffic based on DGCA (Director General of Civil Aviation) airport statistics and scheduled airlines data. Considering the basic lacunae of the non availability of the air passenger O-D traffic flows in the public domain, the iterative empirical procedure developed in this paper can serve as an invaluable tool for the validation of traffic forecasting models and also to assess the suitable aircraft size/ fleet composition for serving short-haul air routes. In this study, five year traffic data (2000-2004) from the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA, India) and schedules of domestic airlines in India has been used as the base for developing a mechanism to predict origin-destination air passenger traffic flows between airports (city-pairs) in the domestic air network. The outcome derived from this can support the academic pursuits and research efforts in air transport field.
