by Louis A. Turpen, San Francisco Int Airport, San Francisco, United States,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: International Air Transportation: A New International Airport

Abstract: Air transportation has become a common and preferred method of travel, resulting in an ever increasing number of air passengers. The significant growth has resulted in unique and never before experienced demands upon airport landside access and roadway systems. Lacking the traditional tight controls of air operations, landside activities proliferated in an almost laissez-faire manner. With the advent of deregulation the specter of even more confusion and congestion was the catalyst for the development of a separate and unique airport specialty -- Landside Management.
