This manual which is intended to assist Airport and Government Authorities, Architects, Designers, Consultants and Airlines in planning the international airport terminal complex, presents recommendations which apply not only to purely domestic airport terminals. The terminal complex is assumed to include both passenger and cargo terminal buildings, as well as adjacent airside and landside areas with their associated facilities. The various facets of airport terminal planning are considered in relation to the present and future generation of jet aircraft, and with particular emphasis on airlines' functional requirements. As the ideal terminal adaptable to all airports has not yet been designed, it is essential in applying the broad guidelines in the manual to local situations, to establish close and constant consultation from the earliest planning stage between the Authority, consultants and the airlines serving the location. This consultation should include the cost aspects of all projected developments.
