Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport: a primary regional airport in search of expanded international service

The City of Phoenix, Arizona, and its region are typical of the Sun Belt metropolitan areas that lured firms away from what became known as the ‘rust belt’ cities of the northeast and Midwest of the US from the 1970s onwards.

Phoenix’s main airport, Sky Harbor International (PSHIA), while serving a large local population in what is still a fast growing state, has increasingly found itself competing for hub traffic with other such big city-region airports, such as Los Angeles and Las Vegas. While it has excellent domestic and wider North and Latin American connections, it lacks connections to some important international regions.

This CAPA report examines Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport by way of several sets of metrics, looks at the airports that can be considered its rivals, and at its construction activities and ownership.
