THE APRON AND TERMINAL BUILDING PLANNING MANUAL

This document presents planning recommendations for terminal building areas and apron space. The apron and terminal building areas are defined as those areas included and limited by the curb roadway and associated parking on the landside and taxiway access to the apron on the airside. The principal areas presented are: apron, connector, terminal, curb roadways and parking. Space considerations are presented as they are affected by these four principal concepts, airport traffic volumes, types, and station characteristics. A presentation of area and layout for all major elements of the terminal building is illustrated in tabular, graphic and plan formats. Sources of planning information and guidance for the procurement and input of this information are provided. Gross terminal sizing recommendations for medium and long-range planning are presented.
