International Demand from smaller stations
« on: August 02, 2010, 05:49:55 AM »
Does the demand model in AWS take into account introduction of direct non-stop flights from regional airports to international stations by correspondingly decreasing the demand from a major Hub airport nearby?

for eg.. introduction of a direct flight from a regional airport TRZ to SIN should (like in real life) reduce demand correspondingly on the MAA-SIN as well as TRZ-MAA routes?

No.

Demand in AWS is airport-to-airport specific.  You cannot "steal" demand from nearby airports.

That feature is at the very least over a year away, if it ever gets working at all.

Sort of a linked question.  I have looked at demand from my base in Ireland to the US, but it shows as zero.  While at present there are no real-world flights on the routes, history has shown that service provision creates demand (who would have thought Kerry - Hahn would be a goer 15 years ago?)  My question is therefore, does provision of a service create demand as it would in the real world?

Nope.  Demand being zero is just that -- zero.

But if there is some demand it will grow over time and excess service at cheap rates supposedly (one of those things that'd be impossible to prove, I can only go by what has been claimed in the past) drives this increase up a bit faster.  But it's still a small growth, it's not some overnight "Southwest Effect" where demand goes from 20 to 200 a night just because there's cheap service.

another related question: from smaller stations there are a number of long haul routes (>2500 nm) that show an average daily demand of ~30: thus weekly demand of 210 odd.  Would deploying 2x weekly A319's tap this demand?

that is to say: is the day wise demand flexible through the week?

It's on a daily basis, so 30pax/day will not add to 60pax/2days etc.
