The evolution of airport development, the utility and benefits of airports, and the problems of expanding or implementing a major new airport facility in light of the many constraints imposed by opposition groups are briefly examined. The responsibility of government in planning airport operations and expansion is discussed. It is concluded that too many agencies are responsible for accomplishing a sound airport transportation system and that one overall agency should be responsible for ensuring adequate airport development in all areas--roads, the groundside, and the airside.
