The Committee on Terminal Facilities provides information on present and proposed means of maximizing passenger convenience and minimizing walking distance within the airport. The facilities studied include aircraft buses, loading bridges, moving sidewalks, monorails and helicopters. Special consideration is given to mobile lounges which serve as hold-rooms at terminals. The lounge seats 60 people and will accommodate an additional 40 in a standing position. The aircraft end of the lounge has a folding gangplank for entry into the aircraft. The lounge may be driven in both directions, forward and backward. It has been a successful vehicle, and has received enthusiastic passenger acclaim.
