Recognizing the increasing attention being given to landside problems and the need for more guidance on how to address them, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) sponsored a Transportation Research Board (TRB) study of airport landside capacity assessment techniques. As a follow-up to this study, the TRB Committee on Airport Landside Operations organized two sessions on the broader topic of landside planning techniques at the 1988 TRB Annual Meeting. The papers in this Record were presented at those sessions. Landside planning problems are becoming increasingly complex, and their solution is critical to the continued operation and expansion of many major airports. Although a variety of analytical techniques exist, many of the issues that need to be addressed present a significant challenge to currently available tools. There is a pressing need to establish standards for analytical procedures and support data and to better understand the validity and limitations of different techniques, so that appropriate computer software can be made widely available and landside planning can be based on analysis using sound and well-documented techniques. Topics covered in the papers include level of service considerations and analytical techniques.
