Short Tutorial Course
Delivery: Virtual Classroom
Duration: 1 day (4 hours)

This course will explore airport terminal passenger capacity on a basic level and migrate to aircraft movement capacities on the airport surface and in the air.

Learning objectives

Upon completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the concepts of capacity within the key areas of an airport, including landside, passenger, and aircraft movements.
  • Describe chokepoints affecting capacity within an airport terminal.
  • Describe the factors affecting airport surface capacity.
