Résumé

Using a regression model, the paper examines the determinants of air traffic volume for the 89 largest urban areas in the US and Canada. The reorganization of the airline industry does not seem to have altered the fundamentals of the economic geography of air traffic. Urban size and local industry structure remain the primary determinants, consistent with the findings of previous studies. Location also matters: carriers ideally seek to locate in the centre - the largest city - of their market. The size and shape of national markets and the presence national borders also matter. The linear form and low densities of Canada’s population limit the development of nationally-based hub-and spoke networks. Canadian cities exhibit systematically lower traffic volumes than their US counterparts.
