AIRPORT PLANNING

1.1 General

Airport planning requires more intensive study and fore thought as compared to planning of other modes of transport. This is because aviation is the most dynamic industry and its forecast is quite complex. Planning is a specialized phase of air development before design can begin. The most efficient plan for an airport is that which provides the required capacity for aircrafts, passenger cargo, and vehicle movements, with maximum passenger, operator & staff convenience at lowest capital & operating costs. Flexibility & expandability should be considered in conjunction and are fundamental to all aspects of planning. Unlike rail, road and water transportation, air transportation has yet not reached a steady state in design. It is very difficult to predict for the airport, satisfying the present need, whether this airport, shall prove adequate for the new types of aircraft which may emerge 10 years hence.
