Air traveling by residents of the core area of St. Lawrence County, New York is characterized by long ground access distance and is subjected to influences by airports across the border in Canada. To provide a means for evaluating potential impacts of new or improved regional airports which are to serve the area, a study is conducted to model the choice of competing airports by the air passengers. The study is based on data collected from a telephone survey of 16.6% of the households. A binary choice model is found to be able to explain the choice behaviors adequately. The model does not have to rely on large data base. It is theoretically sound and easy to apply.
