Anticipated development and growth of air transport in the near future is examined in relation to the planning and design of airports for the 1980's. Papers examine differences between present and fulture commercial aircraft, the effects of technological development on international air transport, changes in the European air transport pattern, terminal planning for improved passenger and baggage movement, special development problems envisioned for Maplin Airport, social and economic consequences of airport operation, and the contrasts in national airport planning as occasioned by participation of central governments in different countries.
