A computer program has been developed, with the aid of which, passenger flows through the terminal can be simulated. The terminal Flow Model is an interactive event-oriented model that permits the user to simulate the flow of passengers and well-wishers in the terminal building. The input requirements and the outputs of the computer program are detailed. The use of the model is illustrated by a simulation run on Victoria International Airport, Canada, and a comparison of the results with the data collected in a time-stamp survey collected on the same site. The closeness between the observed data and the results indicate the usefulness of the model.
