The airline industry generates operating revenues of $172 billion in 2007, amounting to over 1% of the U.S. gross domestic product. It carried more than 700 million passengers in 2007.

Overall, airfares have decreased & service has improved since the dereg. of the airline industry in 1978. Contributing to this trend has been the increased competition spurred by the entry of new airlines into the industry, & established airlines into new markets. A number of airports in the Southeast & upper Midwest have not experienced such entry & therefore have not experienced lower fares & improved service. This report determines if barriers still exist that prevent airlines from serving new markets & how these barriers have affected airfares & service.
