Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to investigate the feasibility of alleviating congestion at high density airports through modification of the variables that affect aircraft traffic mix. The study examines the determinants affecting airport and airside demand and capacity, evaluates the effects of varying traffic mix parameters on demand and capacity, and identifies candidate policies and procedures which could modify the traffic mix at a high density airport. The report also evaluates the feasibility of implementing possible policiesprocedures and identifies the related advantages and disadvantages of each. It further examines the effectiveness of proposed alternatives through hypothetical implementation at the selected high density airports. Author
