Typical elements of new trends in airport design are noted, and airports such as Houston Intercontinental Airport, Tampa International Airport, and the Kansas Mid-Continental International Airport are described as examples. Some of the new designs include: decentralized terminals in a satellite or a circular formation that allows planes to belly up to boarding stations; people moving systems like the one in Houston where 4 battery-powered subway trains that carry 21 passengers each, seven to a car, and run at 2 miniute intervals at rush hours; and long-term parking lots for private autos close to or atop terminals.
