Determinants of daily fluctuations in air passenger volumes. The effect of events and holidays on Milan Malpensa airport

Determinants of daily fluctuations in air passenger volumes. The effect of events and holidays on Milan Malpensa airport

Air traffic flows show large seasonal variability, but arrivals and departures may also be significantly influenced by specific events which generate peaks, which generate peaks rising above baseline traffic. While seasonal variations of air flows are well studied in literature,...
