Modelling and Managing Airport Performance provides an integrated view of state-of-the-art research on measuring and improving the performance of airport systems with consideration of both airside and landside operations. The considered facets of performance include capacity, delays, economic costs, noise, emissions and safety. Several of the contributions also examine policies for managing congestion and allocating sparse capacity, as well as for mitigating the externalities of noise, emissions, and safety/risk.
- Provides a global perspective with contributing authors from Europe, North and South America with backgrounds in academia, research institutions, government, and industry
- Contributes to the definition, interpretation, and shared understanding of airport performance measures and related concepts
- Considers a broad range of measures that quantify operational and environmental performance, as well as safety and risk
- Discusses concepts and strategies for dealing with the management of airport performance
- Presents state-of-the-art modelling capabilities and identifies future modelling needs
Themed around 3 sections – Modelling Airport Performance, Assessing Airport Impacts, and Managing Airport Performance and Congestion Modelling and Managing Airport Performance is a valuable reference for researchers and practitioners in the global air transportation community.
