Update to ACRP Report 25: Airport Passenger Terminal Planning and Design

ACRP Report 25: Airport Passenger Terminal Planning and Design comprises a guidebook, spreadsheet models, and a user’s guide in two volumes and a CD-ROM. These products provide guidance in planning and developing airport passenger terminals. Since its publication in 2010, ACRP Report 25 has been the most downloaded ACRP publication. Over the last 10 years, significant changes in technology, protocols, design, passenger behavior, and customer expectations have occurred, with many of these changes being accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, ACRP and others have subsequently published numerous terminal-related guidance and tools (many of which are accessible on ACRP WebResource 2: Airport Passenger Terminal Design Library) that are not referenced in the current version of the report. Lastly, the means by which airport industry practitioners access ACRP products has evolved (e.g., many practitioners no longer have access to CD readers). Research is therefore needed to update the products associated with ACRP Report 25 and to provide them in more user-friendly formats. The objective of this research is to update ACRP Report 25 and its associated products to reflect the latest recommended practices in airport passenger terminal design and planning and to provide these products in easily accessible, user-friendly formats.
