NOTE: 2005 numbers used in this report differ from those in the June 2005 report because the facilities used for the 2005 analysis were revised to include only airports with scheduled intercity passenger transportation (the June 2005 report included a few airports with only commuter air service). Additionally, the method used for determining coverage was revised in this report to more accurately compute the coverage area and applied to the 2005 data.
(a) Airports may provide air coverage to more than one State but airports counted only in State in which located. Ronald Reagan and Dulles included in total number of airports providing coverage for Virginia.
