AN ANALYTICAL INVESTIGATION OF AIR-TRAFFIC IN THE VICINITY OF TERMINAL AREAS

Several analytical models for air-traffic in the general air terminal area are constructed, with the purpose of exploring some questions about air-traffic congestion. Attention is first focused on a single runway which is used exclusively for landings. A similar analysis is performed for a runway which is used only for take-offs. The results from the basic models are used in order to develop expressions about queueing and delay characteristics associated with various operations. The possibility of inserting departures between successive arrivals, thus increasing airport capacity, is also examined in detail.
