Abstract : This volume describes a methodology for performing airport landside planning by applying the Airport Landside Simulation Model (ALSIM) developed by TSC. For this analysis, the airport landside is defined as extending from the airport boundary to the aircraft gate. The model routes simulated enplaning and deplaning passenger groups through a series of essential processing facilities. At the simulated facilities, queueing and service processes are modeled. Flow, queueing time, queue length, and occupancy statistics are produced. This guide describes how the model output may be applied to a landside capacity analysis. It also discusses using the model for management of daily operations and airport design. A description of input data necessary for model operation is presented with examples using data from Miami, Denver, and La Guardia airports.
