1 ACCOMODATING A380 OPERATIONS AT MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT PROJECT STATUS Presented by José A. Ramos Chief of Aviation Planning, Development Division Miami-Dade Aviation Department ACI-NA A380 Meeting, Washington DC January 25, 2005

2 Expected A380 Operations Miami International Airport Airlines that to date have announced their intention to operate the Airbus A380 into and out of MIA are: Lufthansa Airlines Air France Virgin Atlantic Airways Miami Dade Aviation Department (MDAD) anticipates a maximum of six daily operations (three daily arrivals and departures) by the Airbus A380 Operations by A380 could be as early as 2008 by Lufthansa Some limited potential exists for FEDEX, or UPS operations to their Latin America hub operation.

3 Adaptations to Design Standards for A380 Compatibility Runway 9-27 that design group VI A380 aircraft be permitted to operate on 150-foot (45 m) wide runway with 50 foot (15 m) wide shoulders. All blast pad dimensions to remain at 250 X 400 feet (76.2 X m) as opposed to the ADG VI standard of 280 X 500 ft. (85.3 X m) The current design standards for taxiway/taxiway and taxiway/taxilane separation need to be revised to allow MIA to accommodate the A380 without requiring significant restrictions - modifications to the airfield are impossible due to space limitations. FAA approval of operational procedures will be required for specific taxiway routings and procedures to keep adjacent taxiways clear/limited while the A380s land/take-off and while taxiing to/from gates.

4 Proposed Adaptations to FAA Design Standards

5 MIA MOS Project Status FAA Guidance Issued Engineering Brief (EB) #63 –Allows the use of non-standard 75’ (in lieu of 100’) straight taxiway sections for A380 taxiing operations with specific conditions and overall taxiway width of 180 feet. Issued Engineering Brief (EB) #65 –Allows a permissible alternative to temporarily widen an existing 150’ wide runway to accommodate limited operations by A380 aircraft. –Requires the strengthening of 25 feet of shoulder pavement on existing 150-foot wide runway in order to provide 200 feet of usable runway pavement and the relocation of existing runway edge markings and lighting to the new edges of the runway. –Total runway and shoulder width of 280’ in lieu of Group V 220’ –FAA will approve A380 operations on 150-foot wide runway if Aircraft Certification shows that the aircraft can safely operate on a 150-foot wide runway. Pending the Aircraft Certification, FAA will require the application of EB#65. Airbus believes that the FAA will have enough data by the time of the certification to approve operations on 150-foot wide runway.

6 MIA MOS Project Status On November 24, 2004, FAA ADO submitted to MDAD notification of FAA Headquarters determination on our MOS submittal.

7 RUNWAY ADAPTATIONS TO STANDARDS ID NO. AFFECTED RWY/TWY DESCRIPTION TYPE OF AOS STATUS 1RUNWAY 9-27 RUNWAY PAVEMENT WIDTH AT 150'. PERMANENT DISAPPROVED RECOMMENDATION: Modifications will be made in accordance with Airports Engineering Brief #65, Minimum Requirements to Widen Existing 150-foot Wide Runways for Airbus A380 Operations. 2RUNWAY 9-27 RUNWAY SHOULDER WIDTH AT 25'. PERMANENT 3RUNWAY 8R-26L RUNWAY SHOULDER WIDTH AT 35'. PERMANENT 4RUNWAY 9R-27L BLAST PAD WIDTH AT 250'. PERMANENT DISAPPROVED RECOMMENDATION: The width and length dimensions… are detailed in AC 150/ , Airport Design. Markings are detailed in AC 150/5340-1G Standards for Airport Markings. 5RUNWAY 8R-26L BLAST PAD WIDTH AT 270'. PERMANENT MIA MOS Project Status On November 24, 2004, FAA ADO submitted to MDAD notification of FAA Headquarters determination on our MOS submittal.

8 The Implications of Engineering Brief #65 Engineering Brief #65 recommends: - The strengthening of 25 feet of shoulder pavement on existing 150-foot wide runway in order to provide 200 feet of usable runway pavement. - The relocation of existing runway edge markings and lighting to the new edges of the runway. - The widening of existing shoulders to provide an overall width of 280 feet. Widening of the shoulders will reduce the storm retention swale capacity which will negatively affect runway and airfield drainage. The preliminary cost estimates associated with such improvements are as follow: Runway 8R-26L: $11 M Runway 9-27: $25 M Thus, the widening of the runways to 280 feet will be extremely costly compared to the benefits provided by additional runway pavement shoulders and the very low level of expected A380 operations at the airport.

15 Terminal Improvements Key Issues

16 A380 airlines major preference is for two passenger boarding bridges (PBB) at doors M2 (Main Deck) and U1 (Upper Deck). This arrangement offers the opportunity to both airports and airlines for: –Service and access differentiation –Reduced efforts and simplified processes for passengers with reduced mobility access. Three passenger boarding bridges per gate, although a preference by Airlines, is not an option in MIA due to facility constraints. Total projected Terminal and gate improvements at MIA are estimated between $15 to $20M. This cost is currently unfunded and not in the CIP.

17 Terminal Improvements Projected Terminal improvements One A380 capable gate under construction on: J - 17 Three additional gates (unfunded) identified on: H- 15 F- 19/21 E- 6/8

18 Terminal Improvements Only A380 capable gate currently planned for MIA. Under construction expected completion passenger boarding bridges at second level. Hold room not configured for PAX segregation. Hold room sized for a B747. Gate J-17 Possible A380 upper deck access via escalator located on fixed PBB on J-17. Additional Construction Cost $1M Proposal at this time. Requires funding approval by MDAD User’s Group.

19 Terminal Improvements Passenger segregation at hold room possible. Adequate hold room. Proposal at this time. Requires funding approval by MDAD User’s Group. Gate H-15 A380 main deck access via additional sterile core and two fixed PBB’s on H-15. Est.
