A NEW METHODOLOGY FOR AIRPORT SYSTEM PLANNING--AN OVERVIEW

The paper presents a general description of a methodology developed for airport planning taking into account both local and global planning requirements. This approach involves two related formulations. The Single Airport Model (SAM) and the Multiple Airport Hub Model (MAM). The MAM contains the SAM as a subset. The SAM analyzes alternatives, such as terminal and field expansion to increase airport capacity, within the context of one airport in isolation. The model contains six major subsystems: airfield supply, terminal area supply, air carrier operations demand, air passenger demand, general aviation demand, and a control subsystem. The approach used in formulating a planning problem in SAM format is discussed. The supply subsystem, which consists of both airfield and terminal area components, and the demand subsystem, which takes into account the demands for airfield capacity by aircraft and for aircraft by passengers, are described. A representative set of planning policies is discussed.
