INTERNATIONAL TRENDS IN AIRPORT CONSTRUCTION

Air transport, in terms of passengers per year, is growing at a prodigious rate, and can now be considered an element of mass-transit in general. Thus, airports planned for today must reckon with greatly increased traffic by the time they are completed. This study emphasizes flexibility of design, especially in relation to facilities for handling aircraft ground traffic, and for improving the connections between airports and adjacent cities in order to avoid passenger congestion at the terminals. The Aeroport Charles de Gaulle and the Leningrad Airport are presented as illustrations.
