Abstract: As air traffic continues to grow, the nation’s airports face a number of challenges, including ensuring passenger safety and comfort, overcoming limitations on expansion, speeding passenger throughput, and managing airspace efficiently. But many airports are working to resolve these challenges—to, as some say, “future-proof” their infrastructure. These initiatives could set the course for airport renewal across the nation.
