Abstract

Air traffic is continuously increasing and more efficient air transport systems are required to handle the air travel demand. The study investigates the expansion of Lanseria International Airport in Gauteng, South Africa. Expansion of Lanseria requires a study of the airport apron layout to ensure efficient passenger-aircraft flow as well as the efficient flow of aircraft to and from the airport. The candidate layout designs are based on the layout concept of the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Atlanta, USA. In the study, different airport apron layouts were compared, including the existing layout of Atlanta Airport, via a simulation model of each. Designs based mainly on passenger transfer distance between the terminal building and aircraft were evaluated. The cross-entropy method was used to develop a generic flight-to-gate assignment program that minimises passenger transfer distances.

Lugverkeer groei toenemend en meer doeltreffende lugvervoerstelsels word benodig om in die lugvervoerbehoefte te voorsien. In hierdie studie word die uitbreiding van die Lanseria Internasionale Lughawe in Gauteng, Suid-Afrika ondersoek. Die uitbreiding van Lanseria vereis 'n studie van die lughawe se laaibladuitleg om doeltreffende vloei van passassiers na en van vliegtuie te verseker, asook die vloei van vliegtuie na en van die lughawe. Die moontlike uitleg-ontwerpe is gebaseer op die uitlegkonsep van die Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Internasionale Lughawe in Atlanta, VSA. Verskillende uitleg-ontwerpe, insluitend die bestaande uitleg van Atlanta, is in die studie met simulasie vergelyk. Die verplasingsafstand van passassiers tussen die eindpuntgebou en die vliegtuie is as hoofoorweging vir vergelyking gebruik. Die kruis-entropiemetode is gebruik om 'n generiese vlug-na-hek-toedeling te doen wat passassiers se verplasingsafstand minimeer.
