Airport Systems: Planning, Design and Management, Second Edition is an in-depth guide to creating effective and efficient airports. To achieve this objective, professionals need to consider the whole problem, from the initial planning, through the design of the facilities, to the ultimate management and operation of the airport.

Ideal for professionals and students alike, the book focuses on medium and large commercial airports. Major development topics include chapter-ending conclusions and mathematical exercises. This revision places the book at the forefront of current practice by adding a significant amount of new material, updating all existing content, and removing four chapters of supporting material and integrating it into the main chapters.

In the time since I attended the professional course on Airport Systems at MIT, the first edition of this book has become a classic for professionals and students in airport management. Continuing the tradition with this extensive revision, the influential Professors Odoni and de Neufville, have enriched their text by covering the key trends driving change in our business, making this second edition a required reading for years to come. -Dr. Yiannis N. Paraschis, CEO Athens International Airport and Chairman Airports Council International-World.

As de Neufville and Odoni emphasise, the aviation world is constantly changing and airport master planning must evolve to be more strategic and adaptable to ever changing conditions.' -Dr. Michael Tretheway, Chief Economist, InterVISTAS Consulting Group
