  • Abstract:
    Since 1978, the Essential Air

    Service (EAS) program has

    subsidized air service to eligible

    communities that would otherwise

    not have scheduled service. The

    cost of this program has risen as

    the number of communities being

    served and subsidies to air carriers

    have increased. At the same time,

    the number of carriers providing

    EAS service has declined. Given

    continuing concerns over the EAS

    program’s long-term prospects,

    GAO was asked to review the

    program.

    GAO reviewed (1) the

    characteristics and current status

    of the EAS program, (2) factors

    affecting the program’s ability to

    provide air service, (3) options for

    revising the program, and (4) tools

    for assessing the program, the

    options for its revision, and the

    program’s performance. GAO

    interviewed stakeholders and

    reviewed the results of an expert

    panel convened by GAO,

    Department of Transportation

    (DOT) data and program

    documentation, and potential

    methodologies for assessing

    federal programs.
