Airport Engineering

Airport Engineering

Airports have become “the gateway” to countries, regions and cities and have taken over the passenger functions that were historically performed by harbours and intercity railway stations.  Thus airports are of considerable symbolic importance and provides important “first impressions” of a country and/or a city.

It is also recognized that airports within metropolitan areas can become the foci for significant industrial and commercial developments, impacting far beyond the strict confines of airport properties.  Modern airports are major economic generators, offering substantial employment opportunities, directly and indirectly, for skilled and unskilled labour.  On the other hand it should not be forgotten that airports also have the potential to impact adversely on their surrounding environments.
