AIRPORT PLANNING REQUIREMENTS - AN AIRLINE VIEW

THE PLANNING OF AIRPORT FACILITIES IS DISCUSSED FROM THE VIEWPOINT OF AIRLINE REQUIREMENTS FOR PROVIDING EFFICIENT SERVICE TO PASSENGERS. EMPHASIS IS PLACED ON THE NEED FOR CLOSE CONSULTATION BETWEEN AIRLINES AND AIRPORT ADMINISTRATIONS DURING PREPARATION OF TRAFFIC FORECASTS IN THE MASTER PLANNING STAGE OF AIRPORT DEVELOPMENT. AN OMNIDIRECTIONALLY DIVERGING HIGHWAY SYSTEM IS ADVOCATED AS THE OVERALL BEST SOLUTION TO ACCESS PROBLEMS AT MOST LOCATIONS, AND THE PROVISION OF ADEQUATE PARKING FACILITIES AND CURBSIDE STOPPING AREAS IS CONSIDERED A NECESSITY. ADDITIONAL TOPICS CONSIDERED INCLUDE TERMINAL FACILITIES, CARGO HANDLING SYSTEMS, AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE PROVISIONS, AIRPORT OPERATING AREA REQUIREMENTS, OPERATIONAL LIMITS AND RESTRICTIONS, NOISE ABAYEMENT, AND EXHAUST POLLUTION. /IAA/
