Document Type: Journal Paper


The Committee on Terminal Facilities has developed material which has as its primary objective the identification, organization, and documentation of the diversified range of future impact factors which demand flexibility in the programming, planning, and design of air passenger handling facilities. Basic categories of these impact factors include: Technological Developments, Socio-economic Developments, and Institutional/Regulatory Developments. The documentation includes correlations of probable future events in these major categories with various impact characteristics such as generators, recipients, moderators, relevance/significance, passenger terminal components as well as probability and timing of event occurence. The resultant series of matrices will serve as a systematic guide for airport planners, engineers, and architects participating in the development and evaluation of concepts and detailed plans for expansion or remodeling of existing passenger handling facilities as well as designing new terminal facilities on a variety of airports.
