From the perspective of airport management the knowledge of short-term future airport operation levels is a crucial part of the planning process. In this paper we evaluate the forecasting abilities of exponential smoothing (ETS) and seasonal autoregressive integrated moving average (SARIMA) models applied to the monthly time series of cargo transport, aircraft complete operations and passenger flows generated by selected Polish regional airports.
