Planning Guide for Offsite Terminals

Issues related to highway congestion, air quality, facility constraints, and customer service may lead to more use of offsite passenger service terminals in conjunction with major airports. Offsite passenger services already are provided in various ways around the world, and more applications are being considered. However, offsite terminals do not always meet expectations, and some have been closed. This mixed record suggests that planners and operators need better information and guidance associated with the planning of offsite terminals. The objective of this research is to provide a guide for airport operators and others to use in planning offsite terminals. The research shall address topics such as warrants for offsite terminals and factors that influence their success; cover the range of services provided; and identify potential stakeholders and partners.
