Traditionally, airport planning efforts have been directed toward developing operational and economic efficiency within the airport landside and airside. Recently, these efforts have recognized the importance of maintaining equilibrium between the airside and the landside. This paper expands the scope of airport planning by focusing attention on off-airport activities that interact with the airport landside. The material presented assesses the relations between landside functions and off-airport activities. The activities relevant to the landside and off-airport interaction are identified, and the demand for and supply of off-airport activities are reviewed with emphasis on consumption and production. Findings and recommendations for alternative approaches for balancing the airport landside and off-airport capabilities are presented. /Author/
