In recent years, air traffic has increased dramatically while airport capacity has remained stagnant. This has resulted in congestion problems which degrade the performance of the air traffic control system and cause excessive costs. Despite recent technological advances in the airport airside area, some procedures and operational rules in the landside area are years behind airside capability. In this chapter, a discrete-event system view of airport operations is introduced. The main aspects of delay propagation due to a lack of coordination policies will be illustrated using an Arena© simulation model. © 2009 Springer London.
