Flashcards in Airport Planning Deck (37):
1

Short term volatility in passenger demand is largely influenced by what factors?

Accessibility
Economic Structure
Alternative modes of transport
Market forces such as airline mergers and restructuring

2

Five categories of airport ownership and operation

Public
Corporatised
Concessioned
Partially privatised
Fully privatised

3

System planning examines airports at what four primary levels?

Local
Regional
National
International

4

Forecasts for aviation systems planning are categorised into what three categories?

System Planning
Master Planning
Facility Planning

5

Master planning considers what levels?

Local
Regional

6

Three primary techniques to forecasting

Expert judgement
Time series analysis
Econometric models

7

Time Series Analysis

Assumes that the future is an extrapolation of the past. Fits an equation to historical data to forecast future.

Weakness: unable to account for changes in casual variables

8

Econometric models

Mathematical models that take into account socioeconomic and air service factors

9

Airport Master Plan

Document that presents the planners conception of the ultimate development of a specific airport

10

Traditional Airport Master Planning process

Inventory existing conditions
Forecast future traffic
Determine facility requirements
Develop alternatives for comparative analysis
Selecting best as master plan

11

How often are master plans updated?

Typically every 5-7 years

12

Lead times for infrastructure

May exceed 7 years

13

How long do master plans account for?

20 years

14

Components of airside

Part of the airport used for the surface movement of aircraft, as well as adjacent terrain and buildings. Access to which is controlled and has the potential to affect operations and security of aircraft

15

Components of landside

Anything not designated airside

16

Components of terminal

Bridges both airside and landside

17

What is maximum throughput capacity

Principle and most fundamental measure of the capacity of a runway system.
Indicates the average number of movements that can be performed on the runway system in one hour in the presence of continuous demand while adhering to seperation requirements

18

Sustained capacity

Number of movements per hour that can be sustained over a period of several hours

19

Declared capacity

Number of aircraft movements per hour that can be accommodated at a reasonable Level of Service (read: delays)

20

Functional program

A pre-design document describing the functional requirements of a building or renovation in sufficient detail to initiate schematic design

21

Single til vs dual til

Single til = non aeronautical revenues subsidising aeronautical charges to airlines

Dual til = non aeronautical and aeronautical revenues being considered two separate things

22

Four factors affecting airport pricing decisions

Demand
Market
Competition
Business environment

23

Six components to the promotional mix

Advertising
Direct Marketing
Personal Selling
Sales Promotion
Public Relations
Social Media Marketing

24

Personal Selling defintion

When a more complex business relationship is being pursued and the message is targeting a specific audience - this is the preferred method for promotion

25

Dynamic Strategic Planning

Dynamic strategic planning is the approach recommended for
airport development. It recognizes the reality that the airport/
aviation industry is highly uncertain; that we do not and
cannot know what the future will bring.

26

What are the four entities that can act as an airport operator?

National Government
Local or regional government
Company specialising in airport management, acting as a contractor
Corporate entity, known as an airport authority

27

Advantages of single til

Traveling public are beneficiaries
Nonaeronautical entities thrive

28

ICAO aircraft reference codes for aircraft are made up of two elements

Code Number is determined by airplane reference field length (min field length at MTOW)
Code Letter is determined by wingspan and distance between the outside edges of the aircrafts main gear

29

What is the airport reference code determined by?

Most demanding type of aircraft

30

Landside Central Axis layout advantages

Efficient
Reasonable proximity of passenger buildings
Better airfield traffic circulation
Ability to isolate the airports landside from the airports surroundings

31

TORA

Length of runway available suitable for ground run

32

TODA

TORA plus clearway

33

ASDA

TORA plus clearway

34

LDA

Length of runway available for ground run

35

Configurations of passenger buildings and aprons

Linear
Pier (finger) concept
Satellite
Midfield, either linear or X shaped
Transporter design inc buses
Hybrid

36

Demand Management categories

Purely Management
Purely Economic
Hybrid

37

Desirability of of airport passenger configuration depends on what three factors

Overall level of traffic
Seasonality of traffic
Percentage of traffic that transfers between aircraft
