Airport landside capacity planning formulates the amount of resources required for passengers processing in an airport terminal. This is a complex task because passenger volume and demand for resources do not have a definite relationship. Many methods have been proposed for airport landside capacity planning. However, some of these methods are too complicated to apply whereas the ones that are easy to apply often could not accurately model the stochastic and dynamic nature of an airport’s landside.
