The problems of airport landside capacity are of industry-wide
interest. Evaluation of landside capacity enables airport operators
and designers to identify passenger and baggage flows bottlenecks,
find the primary cause of the bottlenecks formation and take
measures mitigating the impact of bottlenecks on the airport
operations. Many studies dealing with these problems are focused on
the processing part of the airport terminal and consider the
airport terminal to be an isolated system. Although this approach
provides valuable data concerning capacity, delays or processing
bottlenecks, in some cases, identified capacity constraints are
only the symptoms of the actual problem. In order to identify the
cause of the problem, it is necessary to consider the airport
terminal as an integral part of much more complex regional or
national transportation system. This book investigates the
interrelationship between traffic flows within airport's catchment
area and passenger and baggage flows within the airport terminal
with a view to improve the airport landside infrastructure
utilisation and reduce the air pollution resulting from the high
share of individual airport ground access trips.
