The characteristics and variables Accounted by Operators in the Planning and Operation of Airports
Today, within the airport and airline industry, characteristics and variables that opera-tors must take into account when planning and running airports are very critical. Therefore, they have to be seriously considered as paramount to ensuring the process of planning and design of airports.
Considering the characteristics and variables that airport operators are required to pay attention to is a significantly improved approach that accounts for the rapid changes in the effective operations of airlines and airports. The present paper is fully focused to reflect the latest characteristics and variables to take into account in the course of planning and running an airport. The study offers a comprehensive coverage of the challenging aviation industry and reviews and discusses factors that affect airport operating and runway capacity, delays, apron layout, gate, taxiway and other aspects of passenger terminal planning ranging from airport access to the number of gates affected by aircraft size and capacity. The paper also shed light on clearances or the procedures where travelers pass through immigration and accustoms before boarding an aircraft, air traffic controls and aids.
The methodological approaches used in this paper are based on best evidence and a narrative review. Selected studies were compared and summarized based on the author’s experience and published work. A focus on selected studies is combined with systematic methods of study-selection and analytical exploration.
The present paper clearly articulates characteristics and variables that operators must take into account when planning and running airports. It provides thorough knowledge to all direct aviation stakeholders and specifically to operators on how to achieve success in the field of air transport.
Further research is recommended to carry out a deep research to continue exploring the relationship between aviation safety and security vis-à-vis the characteristics and variables that operators must pay attention to when planning and running airports.
The author recommends for operators and airport planners to take into account the essential characteristics and variables when planning and running airports. It is important to provide readers with the skills that are research-based from both the fields of airline and airport management in order to meet the demands of dynamic aviation industry. .
Other researchers are recommended to carry a deep research to find out the relationship between aviation safety and security vis-à-vis the characteristics and variables that operators must take into account when planning and running airports.
