Abstract:

This study of air traffic delay at San Francisco International Airport, its causes, and potential solutions, has identified a comprehensive program of delay reduction measures which, if implemented, has the potential to dramatically reduce the level in cost of delay. The potential cost savings outlined point out the most productive directions in which to focus industry action. The analysis in this study focused on means of increasing the operating efficiency of the airport and reducing aircraft delay through changes in air traffic control procedures, changes in airport use policies, and to a limited degree potential airport development actions. Environmental concerns were recognized in developing recommendations, but were not within the scope of the task force study and are not addressed in this report.
