Parallel runways make it possible to increase the airport's capacity and reduce delays to a greater extent than divergent or intersecting runways. The various possible configurations for parrallel runways are tabulated together with data relating to their respective capacity compared with those of intersecting or divergent runways. A minimum spacing of 5,000 ft. between runways is essential. This spacing makes possible simultaneous ILS approaches, thus giving the parallel runway system true double capacity.
