Within this exclusive group of airports, the range of airport size and activity level is very wide, and the distribution of passenger enplanements is highly skewed. About half the primary commercial service airports handle relatively little traffic; the vast majority of passengers are enplaned through relatively few very large airports. This phenomenon is a direct result of the airline routing strategy, known as the “hub and spoke” system that was adopted by several of the nation’s largest carriers.

Airports by level of activity. (Figure courtesy FAA) small hubs. S. enplanements. In 2002, 280 primary commercial service airports fell into the nonhub category. Airports that handle at least 2,500 but less than 10,000 annual enplanements are categorized as nonprimary commercial service airports, or simply commercial service airports. In 2002, there were 124 nonprimary commercial service airports included in the NPIAS. General aviation airports Those airports with fewer than 2,500 annual enplaned passengers and those used exclusively by private business aircraft not providing commercial air carrier passenger service are categorized as general aviation (GA) airports.

Types of maintenance required are primarily electrical, mechanical, plumbing, painting, carpentry, masonry, and cement work. Principal duties include: • Developing an approved maintenance schedule for all building maintenance requirements. • Assigning qualified personnel to perform maintenance.
