Abstract

The airport is an essential element in the air transport system for all payload—passenger as well as cargo payload—to get access to the aircraft for transport from origin to destination. The airport can have a very simple structure, with a small runway for the aircraft for take-off and landing and a type of hangar to prepare the passenger boarding, baggage treatment, formalities such as customs or passenger checks and the infrastructure to allow for the preparation of the flight with meteorological information, route planning and aircraft loading.
