Review:


Synopsis:

This work deals with the capacity of airports and the future of airport terminals in the light of estimated passenger growth statistics (2 billion airline passengers by the year 2000). The types of new, replacement and expanded terminals which will be required are discussed. Topics covered include reasons for airport location, wide-ranging case studies (Osaka Bay, Munich, Southampton and Charles de Gaulle airports, for example), the taxonomy of airport forms and public transport interchanges.
