Airport Passenger Terminal Planning and Design: Volume 1: Guidebook

This report comprises a Guidebook, Spreadsheet Models, and a User's Guide in two volumes and a CD-ROM to provide guidance in planning and developing airport passenger terminals and assist users in analyzing common issues related to airport terminal planning and design. This volume, Volume 1, describes the passenger terminal planning process and provides, in a single reference document, the important criteria and requirements needed to address emerging trends and create solutions for airport passenger terminals. This comprehensive Guidebook addresses the airside, terminal building, and landside components of the terminal complex. Volume 2 consists of (1) a CD containing 11 spreadsheet models, which include practical learning exercises and several airport-specific sample data sets to assist users in determining appropriate model inputs for their situations, and (2) a User's Guide to assist the user in the correct use of each model. The models on the CD include such aspects of terminal planning as design hour determination, gate demand, check-in and passenger and baggage screening, which require complex analyses to support planning decisions. The Guidebook and Spreadsheet Models will be beneficial for airport operators, planners, designers, and other stakeholders involved in planning functional and cost-effective airport passenger terminals by providing tools that can be used immediately.
