REGULATORY CONSTRAINTS AND IMPACTS ON AIRPORT LANDSIDE CAPACITY

The regulatory authorities and their regulatory power are enumerated. The extent to which the regulatory powers directly or indirectly impact on airport landside capacity is then identified and investigated. The role of environmental legislation in an expansion or new airport context is shown to be quite important. Likewise, the lack of the control of the Civil Aeronautics Board over scheduling and equipment deployment is shown to be a major influence on airport landside capacity. Few of the impacts are shown to be direct. A host of indirect impacts of varying degrees of intensity exist. The paper suggests that a systems analysis of the benefits and costs of the regulations be undertaken. /Author/
