Managing in the 80's a new airport like Maplin will present a different challenge from that which faced the first managers of existing airports. Both the size and the technological content will be different. Objectives and management styles must be carefully chosen and defined, and the airport manager must ensure that the whole airport system gives a high level of passenger service. To do this he must know what the passenger really wants, not what he thinks the passenger wants. It will be difficult to permit large numbers of individual, autonomous organizations to operate in parallel without adversely affecting the level of passenger service. A large degree of automation throughout the whole airport system will be necessary if the maximum planned capacity, approximately 125 million passengers per annum, is to be achieved.
