A HANDBOOK FOR THE ESTIMATION OF AIRSIDE DELAYS AT MAJOR AIRPORTS (QUICK APPROXIMATION METHOD)

The handbook contains a set of curves that allow estimation of the average number of total daily delay minutes at a major airport under a variety of conditions. Demand profiles at each airport are classified with respect to the number of daily peak periods, the percentage of daily flights during peak periods, and the number of peak period operations at the airport. When combined with the saturation capacity of the airport, these descriptors provide sufficient information to allow usage of the handbook. Examples illustrating the use of the handbook are provided, as well as a brief review and description of the technical approach and of the computer package developed for this purpose. (Author)
