Approaching management topics from a strategic and commercial perspective rather than from an operational and technical angle, Managing Airports, second edition, provides an innovative insight into the processes behind running a successful airport. It contains examples and case studies from airports all over the world to aid understanding of the key topic areas and to place them in a practical context. The book: * tackles the key airport management issues related to economic performance, marketing and service provision within the context of the industry's wider development * systematically considers the impact that airports have on the surrounding community, from both an environmental and economic viewpoint * analyses the contemporary trends towards privatization and globalization that are fundamentally changing the nature of the industry Accessible and up-to-date, Managing Airports second edition, is ideal for students, lecturers and researchers of transport and tourism, and practitioners within the air transport industry. Airport case studies include those from BAA, Vienna, Aer Rianta, Amsterdam, Australia and the USA.
The report presents the results of the second phase of a two-part research effort. The results of the first phase of the research were published as Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Report 62: "Improving Public Transportation Access to Large Airports." The two reports provide considerable information and practical guidance.

This book gathers together innovative research and practical findings relating to urban mobility transformation. It is especially intended to provide academicians, researchers, practitioners and decision makers with effective strategies and techniques that can support urban mobility in a sustainable way. The chapters, which report on contributions presented at the 5th Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility, held virtually on June 17-19, 2020, from Greece, cover the thematic areas of: social networks and traveler behavior; applications of technologies in transportation and big data analytics; transport infrastructure and traffic management; and transportation modeling and impact assessment. Special attention is given to public transport and demand responsive systems, electromobility, micromobility and automated vehicles. The book addresses the challenges of the near future, highlighting the importance of knowledge transfer, and it is intended to foster communication among universities, industries and public administration.
The purpose of this research was to describe the elements that comprise airport access and develop a methodology for identifying and evaluating existing landside access performance and proposed improvements from a passenger perspective. The scope was limited to landside access service between approaches to the airport and the entrance to the terminal. A literature review and an investigation of Virginia state and metropolitan transportation agencies yielded the evaluation standards, guidelines, and methods currently used to identify and evaluate airport landside access performance and improvements. A national survey of U.S. airports determined the characteristics of the airport access services provided. Based on this information, factors relevant to evaluating landside access were identified. An access evaluation methodology was developed based on performance measures relating to cost, time, reliability, convenience, and quality. This methodology was demonstrated through investigation of landside access facilities at Richmond International Airport. Three conclusions were drawn. First, there is a lack of consistency in measuring airport access performance. Second, landside access to airports is a major concern at airports of all sizes, but there is no significant difference in reported access problems among large, medium, and small airports. Third, the methodology developed may be tailored to meet the needs of a specific airport. The study recommends that the Virginia Department of Transportation and the Virginia Department of Aviation incorporate the evaluation methodology into the access fund appropriations process; encourage Virginia airports to adopt the methodology as a step in the master plan process; and encourage nationwide use of the methodology by airport authorities, state departments of transportation, and the Federal Aviation Administration.
