Airport Curbside Capacity Analysis and Operations Management

Ease of access to an airport is an important factor that determines the overall success of the airport. Airport curbside capacity and curbside operations management directly influence the ease of accessibility of airports. Currently there are no standards for curbside capacity measurement and curbside operations management. Traditional capacity definitions applied to highways are not fully applicable to curbsides due to a difference in nature of operations. Also, the advisory circulars and design guidelines of various authorities for airports do not discuss curbside operations to sufficient level. The objective of this research is to develop a methodology for analyzing the curbside capacity at airports, provide standards for curbside capacity and configuration, and provide guidelines for efficient curbside operations management at various types of airports.
