Publisher Comments:

A DEFINITIVE RESOURCE ON THE PLANNING, DESIGN, AND MANAGEMENT OF AIRPORTS


The de Neufville/Odoni airports text is the most comprehensive of its kind. The book will serve as a valuable companion to students of aviation and airport management, thanks to an effective mix of conceptual discussion, real-world examples, and graphic illustrations. Students will appreciate the book as a one-stop shop for airport issues, introducing readers to a wide variety of commercial and policy topics facing airport operators, tenants, and communities. — Carol Hallett, President and CEO, Air Transport Association


[Airport Systems] will become the definitive text on airport design for the first part of the 21st century.
-- Prof. Robert Caves, University of Loughborough, England


I consider Dr. Odoni and Dr. de Neufville to be among the foremost thinkers in the airport planning and systems analysis field. ... I particularly admire their ability to comprehend the implications of complex airport issues, to develop workable solutions, and to explain these solutions in understandable terms to practitioners and politicians. — Dr. Lloyd McCoomb, Vice-President, Planning and Development, Greater Toronto Airport Authority


Two of the most influential professors of airport planning have drawn their vast experience to produce the authoritative text on the complex topic of airport systems. Their lively style and valuable insights make this essential reading for those who would understand and guide the future development of air transportation. The content spans a wide range from the fundamental principles of transportation systems to the details of airport design. Whether your interest is in public policy, planning, design, or management, this book is a critical and up-to-date reference for your activities.
-- Larry Kiernan, Senior Airport Planner, Retired, U.S. Federal Aviation Administration
