Hey all, today I thought of an interesting topic to myself and hopefully others! What features and designs of airports allow not only air traffic, but car traffic, foot traffic and other forms of transportation to move in a swift manner? Leave your airports below! All topics related to this are old and closed,
What qualifies an efficient airport (air traffic):
A layout that minimizes conflicts between air traffic on taxiways, aprons, runways and maybe even in the air! Also, how fast do the aircraft get to and from their gates to the runways?
In terms of car travel:
Many different parking locations that have ample connections to the main terminals and or other forms of transportation. Is the parking process cheap, expensive, painful or too long?
Other motorized transport:
Are there inter terminal subways, monorails or other people moving contraptions? If so how well do these usually operate? Are they old and out dated or new and sleek?
Can passengers walk short distances between places of importance? Like subway stations, parking lots or terminals? If not what prevents it?
Lastly, how do all of these methods factor in together? Let’s check out some interesting airports and architecture!
