Suface access to airports is discussed in the context of a methodology for assessing the demand for a link and selecting a suitable system. A five-stage evaluation procedure is proposed airport classification, demand estimation, interchange studies, selection of modes and socio-economic analysis. Emphasis is placed on the necessity of considering the link in relation to the urban and airport distribution networks and the operational characteristics of the airport. The evaluation of the surface access requirements of the third London airport at Maplin are discussed in the framework of the methodology.
