In the 1950s and 1960s airports were seen as just another, fairly inconsequential arm of government. Over the past 20 years, however, it has become obvious that airports can actually be run as highly successful and profitable businesses. Despite this success the industry has, until now, had no defined economic theory to base itself on. The aim of The Airport Business is to change this.
This book is titled ‘Airport design and operation’. However, the reader will not find chapters
devoted exclusively to airport design or airport operation. Airport design and airport operation are
closely related and influence each other. A poor design affects the airport operation and results in
increasing costs. On the other hand it is difficult to design the airport infrastructure without sound
knowledge of the airport operation. This is emphasized throughout the book.
When the fi rst edition of this book was published in 2001, the airport
industry had received relatively little attention in the published literature
and had been very much overshadowed by the airline sector.
Hence this was the motivation for writing the book. Shortly after the
publication, the airport sector had to cope with the unparalleled consequences
of the events of 9/11, the Iraq War, the outbreak of SARS
and the continuing threat of terrorism.

Up to the early 1960s, passenger traffic through even the world’s largest airport was so small. There are economies of scale on the use of fixed equipment such as baggage systems and check-in decks and with movable apron equipment. Similar economies are found with airport authority, airline, and airport tenants’staff requirements.

In the preface to the fourth edition of this text, the late Dr. Francis
McKelvey remarked that the technological and legislative developments
related to the air transportation industry in the 1980s
and early 1990s were of such significance that an updating of the book
was needed. The fourth edition, published in 1994, enhanced previous
editions, the first of which was published in 1962.

This study briefly summarizes the thunderstorm activities in Vietnam. To predict thunderstorms in the Noi Bai Airport region, the thunderstorm indices are calculated for 64 grid points nearby Noi Bai region from the predicted meteorological fields with RAMS (Regional Atmospheric Modeling System) model. The forecast procedure for thunderstorm is built for this region with four prediction factors, such as CAPEmax, Kimax, SI min, Vtmax in the forecast threshold of 0.6. As a result, the occurrence of thunderstorms reaches 80% for the duration of 36 hours.
About a year ago, I gathered my nerve and began calling friends who write
books about the Macintosh. "I have an idea ...," I'd say, and then I'd describe
how we could work together to address so many of the problems that plague
today's publishing world. At the end of the call, as each friend enthusiasti-
cally signed on, I'd breathe a sigh of relief and dial the next number. I kept
having flashbacks to those scenes in 7he Blues Brothers where Jake and
Ellwood collect their musician friends with the deadpan line, "We're putting
the band back together."
Information and control are of the utmost importance when
moving millions of people and billions of dollars in airplanes
and cargo. So it was no surprise when the Greater
Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) began planning major
changes to Lester B. Pearson International Airport, named after
the former prime minister. The airport is Canada’s busiest
and among the top 25 in the world, which is another reason
communications was a top priority.
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (HAIA) is the world’s
busiest passenger airport, serving more than 83 million passengers per
year. As part of its mission “to be the world’s best airport by exceeding
customer expectations,” HAIA has continually enhanced its 5.8 million
square-foot facility. Part of that effort involves ensuring clear, reliable
communications services for passengers and airport personnel to ensure
a safe and productive environment.
