The realization of future airport capacity is greatly dependent on the levels to which interarrival spacings can be reduced. One factor which might appear to limit realization of this potential is the higher runway occupancy times being experienced on some runways in todays environment. Much of the research regarding runway occupancy times has focused on optimal performance capabilities of particular aircraft types. Less attention has been directed towards those other factors which contribute to higher runway occupancy times. This paper identifies specific causes of longer runway occupancy times today as they relate to airline, exit, aircraft, runway, and airport. It goes on to identify what potential, short-term improvement might be expected at particular runways given an appropriately motivated environment. Author
