Abstract : The study presents alternative approaches, regulatory and technical, to reducing aircraft delays in terminal areas. Delays and benefits versus cost were examined for runway, taxiway, and ILS improvements; new airports; air traffic control procedural changes; automation of the final approach control function; and reduction of schedule peaks. The specific airports studied were: Kennedy International, La Guardia, Newark, Washington National, Chicago O'Hare, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Oakland. (Author)
