Once you have excluded these then you can blame the water pump.

Can air in a home water system cause frequent water pressure surges when running the faucets?

Probably not. It sounds more like a faulty water pump, water tank, or well. Most likely the water pump is directly at fault, but faulty tank pressure, bad electrical supply, or a bad well can cause the pump to do that. Especially if the surges are repetitive in nature, your pump is short-cycling. With lots of research, you might be able to narrow down the problem.
