This report is a review of the different options open to OECD Member governments to deal with the environmental problems raised by the location and development of major airports. The options identified in this report are based on an analysis of the most recent practical experience in 16 Member countries currently concerned with planning new, or expanding existing major airports. In addition the report puts forward a number of principles which should be given important consideration in airport planning. It suggests that these principles should be adopted in order that the planning process may become more sensitive to environmental concerns than is possible with conventional benefit/cost analysis.
