The Methods of Terminal Capacity Analysis

Roman Vokáč, Tomáš Lipták, Milan Lánský


The capacity is a critical issue at many airports today. There are tools for capacity examining and management. But terminal operations are comprehensive and complex and some methods are not suitable. This paper deals with two basic approaches in methods of analyzing the terminal capacity.


Capacity; Kendall notation; Queuing theory
