Support of the Determination of the Declared Capacity by the Use of Airside Simulation for Runway Capacity Analysis

By Stefan Theiss

This contribution shows that the identification of the declared capacity can be supported through the methodology of capacity analysis according to Gilbo and the application of airside simulation. However this practice can only be regarded as assistance to the coordination committee, since only runway system capacities are taken into account. As has been mentioned earlier the declared capacity depends on further factors.

Single European Sky and its impacts on CO2 emissions

Aaron Scholz, Patrick Jochem, Dr. Anselm Ott and Paolo Beria


Aviation has been subject to comprehensive changes over the last decades. Passenger numbers and freight volumes are booming. Adverse impacts are correlated to growth rates. One of the themes in the debate on external effects is the discussion on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Promoted by the industry, the implementation of a Single European Sky (SES) is one step in reducing CO2-emissions in aviation. In this article Aaron Scholz and his co-authors examine the potential of a SES for in-flight emission reductions. In collaboration with the Dutch Ministry for Housing, Spatial Planning and Environment (VROM) Aerlines Magazine is proud to present the publication ofonearticle about spatial planning and/or the environment, in the next four issue of this magazine. The objective of this partnership is to raise awareness and to facilitate the sharing knowledge by facilitating the publication of independent scientific research by prominent members of the scientific community.

‘Planning airports in an era of glocalisation: A spatial economic and institutional comparison between Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) and Munich Airport International (MUC)’

By Bart de Jong, Pere Suau-Sanchez and Michael Droß

Continually globalizing forces have formed a new reality. A reality that is characterized by an increasing and paradoxical worldwide interdependency that is blurring and redefining boundaries, flows of people, products, services, capital and information. The central hypothesis of this paper is that traditional planning approaches do not seem capable of dealing with glocal complexity that influences major airport regions worldwide.

Alternative Approaches to Traditional Airport Master Planning

By Jan Kwakkel

In issue 39 of Aerlines Magazine, Jan Kwakkel discussed the problems that uncertainty poses to traditional AMP. In this sequel he describes two alternative planning approaches tailored to better cope with uncertainty. The objective is to show how these approaches would have resulted in different – more robust – outcomes than the traditional master planning process using the same example as in issue 39, namely the long-term physical planning key decision Schiphol of 1995.

The management of airport congestion – the effects of runway peak pricing

By Paul Nibbering

Airports are experiencing increasing levels of congestion, especially at the largest international airports. This article briefly explains the problem of airport congestion and the main causes and the most favoured solutions against it. It also takes a closer look on the methodology of runway peak pricing by highlighting the pros and cons of this method.

Expo Report: ‘Aircraft Interiors Expo, Hamburg 2008’

By Neil Gouw

“I never realized that even the carpeting, the upholstery and the finishing of the floor cabin and of the seats can be as luxurious or simple as airlines want them to be.” Aerlines editor Neil Gouw recently visited the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg. Here is the exclusive report of his visit for Aerlines magazine.


Book Preview ‘Introduction to Air Transport Economics’

By Bijan Vasigh

While it is undoubtedly true that there are many books that cover different aspects of various economic problems, it is also true that there comes a time when there is a requirement for a textbook that brings together the disparate elements of analysis that are covered in other separate areas. It is our conviction that the time has come to bring together the numerous and informative articles and institutional developments that have characterized the field of airline economics in the previous two decades.
