Using the Dallas/Forth Worth Airport as an example, it is necessary to point out that airport terminal planning must be done with a broad view of the future and an understanding of the problems of the past. A general criterion concerning expansibility and automation with passenger convenience as a goal is presented. An airport transit system is also described, pointing out the fact that distances between terminals must be traversable in a minimum of time. Moving passengers from their deplaning gate to another terminal or to a remote parking area is a prime consideration. This same transit system is sued to move employees, baggage, mail and rubbish throughout its entire circulatory system, thus completely automating the airport. A future convenience for travellers of all kinds could be an inter-city transit system tied in with the airport transit system.
