Aircraft operators experience excessive operating costs and fuel consumption when moving airplanes from ramp of departure to ramp of arrival. Approximately 85-90% of such off-to-on delays are attributable to congestion in the terminal airspace/airport at the destination. Economic penalties and causal factors are described. Increased airport productivity is essential and recommendations for improving airport utilization are provided.
