Abstract : This report contains the findings and analysis of the effects of the Western-Pacific Region (AWP) Preliminary Resectorization Plan of 1993 on local (AWP airports) and system-wide traffic delays. The National Airspace System Performance Analysis Capability (NASPAC) was used to perform this task, and calculates the local and system-wide delays with and without the AWP Resectorization Plan. Cost of delay was derived using the Cost of Delay Module based on these delays, on passenger cost, and on airline and aircraft specific cost The results indicate that the proposed resectorization will reduce the operational delay in years 1995 and 2000 at most AWP airports and system-wide with the maximum benefit occurring in the year 2000. On the other hand, resectorization does not favor the passengers for the future years modeled However, in year 2000, the increase in passenger delay is less than for year 1995.
