Abstract:

The purpose of Data Package No. 6 is to summarize the results of the delay analyses conducted for Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. In the delay analyses, eight potential improvement options that could be implemented to reduce aircraft delays were studied. To conduct the delay analyses, a simulation model was used that reflects observed system operations. After the model was validated against real-world data on demand and delay, it was used to quantify the benefits of the delay reduction options identified by the Task Force. The results from the improvement experiments were then compared with the data from the baseline experiments, and the potential reductions in delay were assessed. A second model, the annual delay model, was used to estimate the average annual delays that could be expected at the Airport under various existing baseline and future conditions post-1985 nd post-1990. The information developed in the delay analyses can be used by the Task Force to identify the improvement options that have the greatest potential for reducing aircraft delays at the Airport. The Task Force can also use the information when it prepares the final Task Force report for the Airport. Author
