The Airport Authority explored opportunities to meet demandfor air service in the San Diego County region with the Regional AviationStrategic Plan (RASP). This was the first time in the county’s aviation historythat a comprehensive look at all the civilian airports was undertaken. The RASPwas mandated by Senate Bill 10, which was authored by State Senator ChristineKehoe and passed in 2007. The planning process took place from 2010-2011.

The Airport Authority has worked closely with the San Diego Association of Governments
(SANDAG) as it concurrently developed its Airport Multimodal Accessibility Plan (AMAP), which will
present a multimodal strategy to improve surface transportation to airports. SANDAG
will ultimately incorporate the RASP recommendations into the AMAP and the region’s
2050 Regional Transportation Plan.
The graphic above shows how the RASP findings will be incorporated into the AMAP
and 2050 RTP.
The 2050 RTP includes an Aviation and Ground Access Section that describes
the region’s airports and related ground access planned to reach them. The Airport
Authority prepares the aviation component of the RTP, as mandated in the legislation
that created the Airport Authority. In addition, the 2050 RTP will include the results
of the Regional Aviation Strategic Plan, which address how to meet the region’s
demand for air service, as mandated in SB 10.
