Table 1: Flight Schedule

Please note that the column Pax contains the number of origin passengers (thus excluding transfer passengers) and the column Trf contains the number of transfer passengers.

Before you can calculate the required size for the departure hall and the number of check- in desks, you have to calculate the peak hour number that is generated by these flights. Use the sliding window method (as described in the lecture) and apply the following arrival pattern for the different flights:

Typical Passenger Arrival Pattern Check-in

You can find the exact numbers of the different arrival pattern in the Excel file ArrivalPatterns.xls on the blackboard.

After deriving the peak hour value for check-in you can calculate the size of the departure hall and the number of check-in desks needed to handle the passengers of the flight schedule.

Use the following formula to calculate the departure hall size:

Questions to answer

1.1 What is the peak hour for the check-in facilities generated by the flights? Apply the method for common check-in.

1.2 What is the number of passengers for the check-in desk during this peak hour?

1.3 How large does the departure hall need to be to handle the flights?

1.4 How many check-in counters are needed to handle the flights?

1.5 How many passport desks are needed to handle the flights?

1.6 How large does the (shared) departure lounge have to be?

1.7 Assume the airport has 10 check-in desks. If all check-in desks would be used as common-check-ins with average processing time of 2 minutes, what would be the theoretical reachable peak hour capacity at the check-in?
