Airport Systems: Planning, Design, and Management, Second Edition

by: Dr. Richard de Neufville, Dr. Amedeo R. Odoni, Dr. Peter P. Belobaba, Dr. Tom G. Reynolds


Abstract: Written by leading technical professionals, known worldwide for their expertise in the planning, design, and management of airports, this is an in-depth guide to creating effective and efficient airports. To achieve this objective, professionals need to consider the whole problem, from the initial planning, through the design of the facilities, to the ultimate management and operation of the airport. Ideal for professionals and students alike, the book focuses on medium and large commercial airports. This revision places the book at the forefront of current practice by adding a significant amount of new material including mathematical exercises; updated environmental regulations and international rules; new aircraft technology and traffic control; and new advances in the design, planning, and management of airports.

Authors:

Dr. Richard de Neufville is Professor of Engineering Systems and Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at MIT. He is known for his development of engineering systems analysis and many texts, most recently, Flexibility in Engineering Design. He has consulted and taught on airport planning "on all continents except Antarctica" for over 40 years. Among his many honors are the Francis X. McKelvey award for Aviation, the FAA award for Excellence in Education (with Amedeo Odoni) and several other teaching awards, the Irwin Sizer award for the Most Significant Contribution to MIT Education, the Chevalier des Palmes Académiques (France), and an honorary doctorate from the Delft University of Technology.

Dr. Amedeo R. Odoni is Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics and Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at MIT. He specializes in the use of operations research and other quantitative methods in planning, designing, operating, and evaluating airport and air traffic management systems. Over the years he has consulted at Amsterdam, Athens, Boston, Milan, Montreal, Munich, New Delhi, New York, Sydney, Stockholm and many other airports, as well as several Civil Aviation Authorities. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of INFORMS, and the recipient of many awards for his research and teaching. He has served, among other positions, as Co-Director of MIT's Operations Research Center and of NEXTOR, the National Center of Excellence in Aviation Operations Research, established by the FAA in 1996.

Dr. Peter P. Belobaba is Principal Research Scientist at MIT, where he teaches graduate courses on The Airline Industry and Airline Management. He is Program Manager of MIT's Global Airline Industry Program and Director of the PODS Revenue Management Research Consortium. Dr. Belobaba holds an MS in Transportation and a Ph.D. in Flight Transportation Systems from MIT. He is a lead author and editor of the recently released book, The Global Airline Industry. Dr. Belobaba has been involved in research related to airline economics, pricing, competition and revenue management since 1985. He has worked as a consultant on the development and implementation of revenue management systems at over forty airlines and other companies worldwide. He has also published articles in a variety of journals, including Airline Business, Operations Research, Transportation Science, Journal of Revenue and Pricing Management, and Journal of Air Transport Management.

Dr. Tom G. Reynolds works at MIT Lincoln Laboratory and is a specialist in aviation operations and environmental impact mitigation. He has particular interest in the development of advanced technologies and operations for improving efficiency and mitigating environmental impacts of aviation, and has helped deploy many improvements at major international airports in the UK and USA. He has a Ph.D. in Aerospace Systems from MIT, has worked on the research staff at MIT and the University of Cambridge. He has won several national awards including the AIAA Orville & Wilbur Wright Graduate Award and was a UK Fulbright Scholar.
