Capacities, Capacity Constraints and Capacity Reserves of Airports, Today and in the Futureanalyzes airport capacity constraints with empirical methods that forecast future capacities and their capacity shortfalls. When predicting the future of air traffic development, it is imperative for researchers and planners to possess the most accurate data for airport capacity constraints. The book discusses in detail the importance of airport capacity constraints on air traffic development, especially for international hubs, along with mitigation strategies for already packed airports.

The book analyzes cross-sectional time-series data to provide greater insight into the problems of airport crowding and over-capacity. The authors go beyond mere strategies to derive capacity, adding estimates for comparable capacities and capacity constraints of airports worldwide. As expanding current airports becomes increasingly difficult, and time consuming especially for hub the study of current and future airport capacity constraints becomes ever more needed. Large international airports are especially essential to the global air transport network. The book provides insight into correctly assessing and quantifying the problem of limited airport capacity, while offering strategies for overcoming these issues for a healthy global air traffic network.

  • Focuses on airport capacity constraints in the global air traffic network and their implications for the future of air traffic development
  • Features empirical and model-based approaches that forecast airport capacities and capacity shortcomings
  • Provides over capacity mitigation strategies based on sound and reliable data and methodology
  • Addresses capacity constraints at hub airports, providing insight into correctly assessing and quantifying limited capacity for these important players in the global air transportation network
  • Applies econometric models for the implication of restraining factors on the future volume and structure of air traffic
His research interests include mathematical and econometric modelling, in particular airport and access mode choice of air travelers, airport capacity constraints and air transport forecast. He developed a model of air travelers' airport and access mode choice for Germany based on discrete choice theory, which is used by Deutsche Bahn ...
