Plan and expand airports with the help of IATA best practices and the latest Airport Development Reference Manual (ADRM version 10, 2014).
Airports need to have the infrastructure in place to provide efficient operations in line with safety and security, allow aircraft to operate efficiently, minimize inconvenience for passengers, and provide fast and reliable baggage systems. As air traffic continues to grow, airports need to ensure that each system is flexible enough to accommodate future requirements.
Learn how to develop your airport using a step-by-step sequence that takes into consideration key elements such as passenger traffic, geographical data, and the positioning of facilities. Identify political and financial issues in airport planning and evaluate capacity constraints and developments.
