The impact of civil aviation as a sector on the general economic activity has been studied systematically and documented. In other words, sustaining a viable aviation industry is therefore vital if the economy is to reap the full benefits of the future growth in foreign trade and investment. It is in the light of this that the paper is aimed at examining airport operational efficiency and capacity utilization as determined or influenced by different airport traffic variables, with a view to determining significant relationship among constituents of airport capacity and traffic volume. Data were sought from Ten (10) sampled Airports in the country on their relative socio-economic characteristics. Therein, descriptive statistics was adopted to describe the relative importance of traffic systems variables at those sampled airports. Similarly, Pearson Product Correlation was adopted to determine the significant relationship of these variables. Results revealed that those variables were positively, high and low correlated in some cases. The implication is that they are related and consequently interact with one another. It is thus recommended among others that streamlining efficiencies in operational integrity, new business processes and paradigms and the use of new technology will continue to see the industry and airports work towards a competitive advantage and achieve outcomes which are appropriate for airports shareholders and acceptable for stakeholders.
