Transfer passenger needs at airports : human factors in terminal design

Brillembourg, Marie-Claire January 1982 (has links)
Thesis (M.S.)--Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Architecture, 1982. / MICROFICHE COPY AVAILABLE IN ARCHIVES AND ROTCH. / Includes bibliographical references. / This thesis analyzes the needs of particular users of airport: transfer passengers. The object of this work has been to produce a set of design guidelines for terminals. these guidelines are framed upon a user-need survey conducted at Boston/Logan International Airport. The investigation has been organized around three important aspects: 1) how present airport terminal environments affect human behavior; 2) what are the physical characteristics and consequences of terminal design on transfer passengers; 3) how can a broader approach to the design of terminals with passengers in mind be applied. Current terminal design solutions have been "satisfactory" in terms of offering alternations for incoming and departing passengers. Very few terminals though, are prepared to cope with an increasing number of transfer passengers. This study clarifies passengers' characteristics and highlights those issues important for those who need to changed airplanes at an airport. These issues are: time involved in the transfer, means of arriving to the departing airline and the impact of the environment on the waiting passenger. the design guidelines presented as the conclusion of this study are an attempt to accommodate a set of behavioral variables to a system of physical variables. This environmental design approach is a continuing effort to include the user into the programming and design of projects. / by Marie-Claire Brillembourg. / M.S.

A decision support tool for unplanned maintenance at ramp time including aviation regulations and scheduling disruption.

Zhao, Jing, Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, UNSW January 2007 (has links)
This thesis describes the development of a decision support tool for unplanned maintenance of aircraft at ramp time during airport operations. Ramp time is the time between an aircraft arrival and its next departure. Clearance of an aircraft for flight is controlled by aviation regulations. Therefore decisions regarding maintenance are taken by engineers who have to comply with the regulations that are governed outside the organizational structure of the airline. Unplanned maintenance also often disrupts the normal operational scheduling and leads to significant costs. Therefore, the decision support tool must include the relevant aviation regulations, be capable of rescheduling to minimise disruption and be able to optimise solutions based on cost. In this project an aircraft schedule is used to demonstrate the procedures. An assumed fleet of six airplanes fly between three cities. Consultation with aviation experts ensured the size of the fleet and operations are realistic. A regulation database was developed based on the Master Minimum Equipment List (MMEL) for the aircraft, and a computer programme was developed to provide different options that comply with the regulations and take into account scheduling disruption and costs. In certain cases the regulations allow an aircraft to fly with some components inoperable so long as backup systems can perform the tasks. It is possible then to postpone the maintenance until the aircraft arrives at a properly equipped airport, or until a longer scheduled stopover reduces the disruption to operations. To address the engineering aspects of the project, maintenance of a single component that appears in the MMEL for the chosen aircraft is considered. To plan maintenance following a failure, the cause of the failure needs to be identified. Only then can the resources and time required to repair the defect be defined. The programme validation has confirmed it is able to balance different aspects of decisions related to unplanned aircraft ramp maintenance. Although the programme is based on an assumed fleet operation, the structure of the programme will allow it to be applied to other fleet and route configurations.

Drivers and barriers for relocation of freight operators to smaller airports - A case study at Jönköping airport (Axamo)

Angelopoulos, Panagiotis, Leivo, Piia January 2013 (has links)
Air freight sector has been a growing market worldwide for many years. The rapid growth of scheduled freight aircraft services in particular has been a remarkable feature of the international airline industry during the past decades. Air freight traffic has grown faster than passenger traffic and the production of goods has become more dependent upon air freight services that link global supply chains together. Air transportation is useful when the goods must be delivered quickly and it also allows for more flexible hub-and-spoke networking structures, which are able to offset some of the problems of indirect flows. The concept of developing regional air-cargo centres can be seen from many different perspectives. The most important factors in airport location selection are connectivity to existing road and rail transport networks and current or potential freight traffic volumes. Right location allows firms to develop their own resources, consolidate their competitive position and nurture their growth. Once the company has located it is hard to relocate, so that is why the location decision has to be made carefully. Purpose: The main purpose of this thesis was to reveal the key factors, either positive or negative, which can affect the decision of air freight operators to relocate their express services to smaller airports.   Methodology: The chosen method for this thesis was the mono method because the data collection technique was qualitative. Based on that interviews, the authors finalized their topic and their research questions and built question lists, one for the Jönköping airport (Axamo), one for the companies that already operate in Jönköping airport and one for companies that do not operate there. The authors decided to have semi-structured interviews with all the interviewees in order to cover the different themes of their research.   Findings: The main findings from analysing the empirical data revealed that there are many different positive and negative factors that can affect the decision making for relocation of freight operators. The most important that were identified concern the airport’s infrastructure, location, quality of provided services, number of passenger flights and price policy. Moreover, the weather conditions at the region, the customers’ demand and connectivity with road and rail networks are also very influential.

Biometrics in practice : The security technology of tomorrow's airports

Salavati, Sadaf January 2006 (has links)
The biometric technology is a method for authentication which has been used since several centuries back. This is a technology which offers several different techniques where the human’s unique characteristics are used for identification and verification of the individual. Biometrics are today at a stage of development that is pointing upwards and many individuals that are well aware of the biometric world believes that this is the technology that will take over the security systems used today. Ever since the terror attacks against USA at 2001, USA demanded that all 45 countries that today are not required to have visa when entering the United States must until the end of 2006 implement passports that contains biometrics information. The UN’s air traffic group on the other hand thinks that all counties in the world should use passports with biometric data. The biometric data in the passports are going to be stored in a chip and is in the first hand an image of the individuals face in a cryptic jpg format, but can also be complemented with fingerprints or even signature recognition. Sweden is currently using passports which contain biometric data but so far haven’t any machines that can read this passports been bought. Ulf Hägglund at Precise Biometrics AB believes that as soon as the real use of the biometric passports gets going the biometric technique will be used in a greater extension in the airports. Even though several Swedish airports consider the security technique used in airports today being enough, biometrics can increase the security and at the same time simplify many security processes. Falsification can be reduced when at same time one can be sure that the same passenger who has checked-in is the passenger who boards the airplane and the employee security control can be totally automatized. Generally it can be said that “biometrics is a decent way to increase security in different areas”. / Den biometriska teknologin är en äkthetsbevisningsmetod som har används sedan flera århundraden tillbaka. Detta är en teknologi som erbjuder flera olika tekniker där människans unika karateristiska kännetecken används för identifiering och verifiering av individen. Biometrin befinner sig idag i ett utvecklingsstadie som pekar uppåt och flera personer som är insatta i biometrins värld anser att detta är den teknologi som kommer att ta över det nuvarande säkerhetssystemet. Sedan terrorattentatet mot USA år 2001 har USA begärt att alla 45 länderna som idag inte behöver visum för att komma in till USA måste innan slutet av år 2006 införa pass som innehåller biometrisk information. FN; s luftfartsgrupp anser däremot att alla världens länder bör införa pass med biometrisk data. Den biometriska data som ska finnas i passen ska lagras i ett chip och är främst en avbildning av individens ansikte i krypterad jpg format men kan även tänkas bli kompletterat med fingeravtryck och eventuellt signatur igenkänning . I dagsläget använder sig Sverige av pass med biometrisk data, men än så länge har inte några maskiner som kan avläsa dessa pass köpts in. Ulf Hägglund på Precise Biometrics AB tror att så snart användandet av de biometriska passen kommer igång på riktigt kommer även den biometiska tekniken att användas i större utsträckning på flygplatser. Trotts att flera svenska flygplatser idag anser att den säkerhetsteknik som används på flygplatserna idag räcker, kan man genom att använda sig av biometri öka säkerheten samtidigt som man förenklar många säkerhetsprocesser. Falsifieringen minskar samtidigt som man kan försäkra sig om att det alltid är samma passagerare som checkat- in som stiger på planet och säkerhetskontrollerna för de anställda kan bli total automatiserad. I stort kan man säga att ”biometrin är ett hyggligt steg mot att förbättra säkerheten inom olika områden”.
