Short haul air transportation systems occupy a unique slot in transportation studies, and are gaining importance due to increased congestion in ground transportation systems. This paper reviews the worldwide scenario and issues of importance relevant to short haul air transportation systems. Various analysis concepts for modeling and analyzing of such a system are discussed. The major issues that emerging are outlined, with a literature review on travel demand, multimodal perspectives, value of travel time, and generalized cost. The literature review reveals that in the present scenario, air travel on short haul routes loses out to other modes since a large amount of travel time is spent in inter-modal transfers and schedule delays. However, proper integration with other associated sub-systems including ground transport at the two ends resulting in a seamless service can make it a preferred mode of travel.
