A review of airport passenger terminal operations analysis and modelling


  • Tosic, Vojin


The paper reviews research results in the area of airport passenger terminal operations analysis and modelling, including available information about applications of reported methods and techniques. The main sources of information for this review were professional journals and other publicly available documents. The review does not claim to be exhaustive but rather illustrative. It shows that very significant efforts have been made in the last 30 years to produce quantitative tools to aid in airport passenger terminal planning, design, and operations. These efforts have produced some very good results. Additional effort in the systematic, comparative, and critical analysis of existing research results is recommended for more efficient continuation of work in this area.
