This document is the first update to the original study, Capacity Needs in the National Airspace System, An Analysis of Airport and Metropolitan Area Demand and Operational Capacity in the Future(FACT 1), published in This update is called FACT 2.   Airports Council International (ACI) World has published a new paper designed to provide guidance for airports making the most of existing capacity whilst planning expansions to meet the growing global demand. After reaching billion passengers in , ACI forecasts predict that global traffic will double by Ramping up airspace capacity – and quickly. It used to be that demand grew steadily toward maximum capacity, then airport infrastructure was ing airspace capacity will be a priority as growth continues. incremental cargo traffic growth has been steady and continues to . Airport capacity is an element of decision support as part of infrastructure planning and coordination of the airports. The capacity and simulation pole of the STAC evaluates the performance of an airport, including the identification of the maximum flow of regarding to a satisfactory condition for operators and covers the area movement (apron and maneuver areas), and the airspace near an.

This circular focuses on this problem. It highlights the importance of the airport airspace and system capacity problem, discusses the significant issues in sufficient depth to provide some fundamental understanding of the issues and attempts to stimulate research toward the solution of the capacity problem. Class B airspace is defined around key airport traffic areas, usually airspace surrounding the busiest airports in the US according to the number of IFR operations and passengers served. The exact shape of the airspace varies from one class B area to another, but in most cases it has the shape of an inverted wedding cake, with a series of. Therefore airport capacity could mean runway or runway system capacity, terminal capacity, apron/stand capacity, airspace capacity and surface access capacity. Airport capacity is often used to describe the capacity of the component with the lowest capacity of all airport components. In major airports, this is often the runway system.   Many airports suffer from limitations in airspace capacity and the Best Practice Recommendations for Airport Operators on Aligning Airspace and Airport Capacity paper is intended to help airports understand key issues related to airspace and airport capacity and the options available to .

Improving capacity is a goal that is shared by nearly every airport and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) is aware of the troubles that lie ahead, recognising the urgent need to address the growing capacity issues that the industry is forecast that billion people will use air travel by
