The catchment area of an airport encompasses areas where passengers are more likely to use the subject airport, even when there are other airport options in the vicinity.
ACRP Web-Only Document 56: Toolkit for Establishing Airport Catchment Areas, from TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program, comprises various analytical tools, such as the Travel Utility Analysis tool, that enable airport industry practitioners to calculate the likely responses of travelers to different market and operational inputs, thus forecasting potential catchment areas for airports.
