BSAB 412 Module 1.6 Review Questions / Airport Planning and Design (ERAU)
1. Discuss the three trends that will dominate the airport/airline industry in the early 21st century.
2. Study Table 1.6 in Chapter 1 of your textbook. How has the emergence of the air cargo industry affected the planning of airports? What are three initiatives planners can do to prepare for further increases?
3. Analyze Figure 2.10 in Chapter 2 of your textbook. Then order the five highest operating costs for airline operations, with 1 being the highest. Also, predict what the five highest operating costs will be 10 years from today. Defend your answer.
4. Your authors stress flexibility is critical in every facet of airport systems planning and operations. Why do they believe this? Give three examples to back up this position. I genuinely believe the author’s perspective on the importance of flexibility. “Flexible planning and risk evaluation appear to be particularly successful where they have taken a wider prominence in the airport organization” (Kincaid & Gros, 2012, p.40)
