Flashcards in Airport Planning Deck (37):
Short term volatility in passenger demand is largely influenced by what factors?
Alternative modes of transport
Market forces such as airline mergers and restructuring
Five categories of airport ownership and operation
System planning examines airports at what four primary levels?
Forecasts for aviation systems planning are categorised into what three categories?
Master planning considers what levels?
Three primary techniques to forecasting
Time series analysis
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
Mathematical models that take into account socioeconomic and air service factors
Airport Master Plan
Document that presents the planners conception of the ultimate development of a specific airport
Traditional Airport Master Planning process
Inventory existing conditions
Forecast future traffic
Determine facility requirements
Develop alternatives for comparative analysis
Selecting best as master plan
How often are master plans updated?
Typically every 5-7 years
Lead times for infrastructure
May exceed 7 years
How long do master plans account for?
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
Components of landside
Anything not designated airside
Components of terminal
Bridges both airside and landside
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
Number of movements per hour that can be sustained over a period of several hours
Number of aircraft movements per hour that can be accommodated at a reasonable Level of Service (read: delays)
A pre-design document describing the functional requirements of a building or renovation in sufficient detail to initiate schematic design
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
Four factors affecting airport pricing decisions
Six components to the promotional mix
Social Media Marketing
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
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.
What are the four entities that can act as an airport operator?
Local or regional government
Company specialising in airport management, acting as a contractor
Corporate entity, known as an airport authority
Advantages of single til
Traveling public are beneficiaries
Nonaeronautical entities thrive
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
What is the airport reference code determined by?
Most demanding type of aircraft
Landside Central Axis layout advantages
Reasonable proximity of passenger buildings
Better airfield traffic circulation
Ability to isolate the airports landside from the airports surroundings
Length of runway available suitable for ground run
TORA plus clearway
TORA plus clearway
Length of runway available for ground run
Configurations of passenger buildings and aprons
Pier (finger) concept
Midfield, either linear or X shaped
Transporter design inc buses
Demand Management categories
