About this book

This book considers the greening of the entire air transport system - airports, air traffic control, and airlines - that could be achieved by the development and implementation of advanced operations and technologies. These include the development of a large airport into a multimodal transport node by connecting it to a high speed rail network; the use of operations supported by new and existing air traffic control technologies to increase landing capacity of existing runways; the use of liquid hydrogen as a commercial aviation fuel; and, the improvement of airport ground accessibility by a light rail rapid transit system.

Contents

1. Introduction.- 2. Greening the Air Transport System: Structure Concept, and Principles.- 3. Greening Airports - I: Monitoring, Analyzing, and Assessing.- 4.
