Over the past decade, the airport industry has evolved considerably. Airport technology has changed. New research has taken place. The major airlines have consolidated, changing demand for airport services. In order to reflect these and other major shifts in the airport industry, some of the world's leading professionals have updated the premier text on airport design – making it, now more than ever, the field's most comprehensive resource of its kind.
The thrust of the authors’ approach is that the new context for airport system planning is commercial, no longer limited to narrow technical aspects. Influences such as airline deregulation, airport and airline privatization, a global airport industry, and advanced technology (electronic commerce in particular) require this new approach. The framework more widely concentrates on costs and revenues, stochastic traffic and risks, and operations and management.
Industry Recommendations: "With the accelerated rate of change occurring throughout the aviation industry, this edition is a timely and very effective resource for ensuring both airport professionals and those interested in airports acquire a comprehensive understanding of the changes taking place, and how they impact airports and the communities they serve. A must read." -- James M. Crites, Executive Vice President of Operations, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport "Airport Systems has been a must read for my management team and my graduate students because of its outstanding comprehensiveness and clarity. Now further enhanced by an expanded treatment of both environmental and air carrier issues, it promises to retain its place as the foremost text in the airport planning, engineering and management field." -- Dr. Lloyd McCoomb, retired CEO Toronto-Pearson Airport, Chair of Canadian Air Transport Security Authority "The chapter on Dynamic Strategic Planning should be required reading for every airport CEO and CFO. As de Neufville and Odoni emphasise, the aviation world is constantly changing and airport master planning must evolve to be more strategic and adaptable to ever changing conditions." -- Dr. Michael Tretheway, Chief Economist, InterVISTAS Consulting Group
