The ground aspects of air travel are considered along with the ground handling of air freight, the surface phase of air transport from the customer's point of view, questions of surface access to the airport, airport transit systems, airport ground speed, the balance of time and cost, the rationalization of ground services, and the relations between the airport and the charter passenger. Attention is also given to a user's analysis of airline ground problems, the interface problem as it affects the customer, the analysis and control of departing and arriving aircraft, and the organization of international airports.
