The factors that affect practical airport capacity are enumerated, and quantitative examples of their effects are given. An analysis technique is described for accurately predicting the practical airport capacity in terms of operating rate and delay. This technique is then used to show how economic analysis can be used to determine when a proposed project can be economically justified, or which of several possible solutions is the most economical.
