Learning Outcome • By the end of this section, student will be able to: • Describe about airports • Explain several different types of airports • Describe the function of Airports
What means by AIRPPORT • An airport is a facility where passengers connect from ground transportation to air transportation.
What means by AIRPPORT • An airport is a location where aircraft such as airplanes, helicopters take off and land. • Aircraft may also be stored or maintained at an airport. • An airport should have runway for takeoffs and landings, buildings such as hangars and terminal buildings.
Definition • AIRFIELD is an area where an aircraft can land and take off, which may or may not be equipped with any navigational aids or markings. Many grass strips are also designated as airfields.
What is Aerodromes? • AERODROMES • A defined area on land or water (including any buildings, installations and equipment) intended to be used either wholly or in part for the arrival, departure and surface movement of aircraft.
Airport History • The world's first airport was built in 1928 at Croydon near London (England). It was the main airport for London till it was closed down in 1959, after the World War II. It is now open as a visitor centre for aviation.
Airlines • An organization that provides scheduled flightsfor passengers or cargo.
AIR TRAFFIC SERVICES • Air traffic services help in navigating aircraft while landing, taking off, flying in the air, over-flying any country, taxing on the ground and parking • They provide a discipline in the air and also on the ground and maintain safety • The services are provided by using modern equipment including radars
REGULATION AND POLICIES The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
The International Civil Aviation Organization • The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), an agency of the United Nations, codifies the principles and techniques of international air navigation and fosters the planning and development of international air transport to ensure safe and orderly growth.
REGULATION AND POLICIES • IN MALAYSIA: • Department of Civil Aviation (DCA)
International Airports • An international airport has direct service to many other airports. • Handle scheduled commercial airlines both for passengers and cargo. • Many international airports also serve as "HUBS", or places where non-direct flights may land and passengers switch planes. • Typically equipped with customs and immigration facilities to handle international flights to and from other countries. • Such airports are usually larger, and often feature longer runways and facilities to accommodate the large aircraft. (FBO, MRO etc..)
O’Hare International Airport – Chicago, Illinois, United States
Domestic Airports • A domestic airport is an airport which handles only domestic flights or flights within the same country. • Domestic airports don't have customs and immigration facilities and are therefore incapable of handling flights to or from a foreign airport. • These airports normally have short runways which are sufficient to handle short/medium haul aircraft.
Regional Airports • A regional airport is an airport serving traffic within a relatively small or lightly populated geographical area. • A regional airport usually does not have customs and immigration facilities to process traffic between countries. • Aircraft using these airports tend to be smaller business jets or private aircraft (general aviation).
Regional Airports Louisiana Regional Airport, US
Airport Ownerships • Most of the world’s airports are owned by government bodies who then lease the airport to private corporations who oversee the airport’s operation. • Forexample, In Malaysia, airport are authorized by Malaysia Airport Holding Berhad (MAHB). • MAHB responsible is to focus on the operations, management and maintenance of Malaysia airports.
How are airports managed? • There are several divisions to manage each sub organizations at an airport. • These divisions including • Airport operation services (security, fire & rescue & maintenance) • Airport planning and development (engineering) • Airport financial (revenues, business) • The primary objective of each division is to ensure the operational efficiency, safety and security of passengers, cargo and aircraft operations.
