FORECASTING AIRPORT TRAFFIC

This paper focuses upon the practical translation of long-range national air traffic forecasts into local facility and service planning criteria which the author hopes will be useful to engineers faced with specific local airport planning and development problems. To bring the subject to life by a practical application to a real problem, the proposed reconstruction of Newark airport is used as a concrete illustration. Newark is, perhaps, a fairly typical example of an airport that has outlived its designed terminal capacity and must now be substantially rebuilt to meet its ultimate traffic demand within the limitation of its ultimate runway capacity.
