CONSTRAINTS AND THEIR INFLUENCE ON AIRPORT LANDSIDE CAPACITY

This report identifies the objectives of Workshop 3, which are as follows: (1) identify the most serious constraints on airport landside capacity and group them in related catetories; (2) identify the various ways in which these constraints affect landside capacity; (3) develop forecasts of the type and character of constraints that will likely influence airport landside capacity and capacity requirements during the next 20 years; and (4) recommend research and development projects that will extend knowledge of the effect of the various constraints on airport landside capacity and identify means of reducing the effect of those constraints. Workshop 3 identified 9 categories of items relating to airport landside constraints. These include sociopolitical, regulatory and institutional, physical characteristics, financial, operational, airport management, technical, economic, and environmental constraints. Participants differentiated between short- and long-term constraining influences as a device to assist with establishing priority recommendations for the research and development projects that are recommended. The attempts to assign priorities, however, were unsuccessful. Much of the discussion centered on subjects related to the creation of a social and political climate for stimulating development projects designed to increase landside capacity. Another major area of discussion concerned ways to level out the peaks and valleys of landside traffic. In reviewing their work at the conclusion of the conference, participants recognized that they had emphasized items that led to a lowering of demand for landside capacity through better use of existing facilities.
