9 The world's largest airport terminal The Hong Kong International Airport passenger terminal building is 1.3 km long and covers an area of acres and is the world's largest single airport building.It also has 48 aircraft parking stands with boarding gates and air bridges, the terminal has a capacity of 45 million passengers a year, arriving on 460 flights every day.Hong Kong
10 Airport Terminal Design Pier Finger TerminalsKansai International AirportPiers offer high aircraft capacity and simplicity of design, but often result in a long distance from the check-in counter to the gate (this way called as Contact Pier).Most large international airports have piers, including Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, Frankfurt International Airport, London Heathrow Airport, Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Bangkok International Airport, Beirut International Airport and Miami International Airport.Pier finger terminalThis terminal configuration evolved during the 1950s when gate concourses were added to the simple terminal building designs. A concourse is actually defined as an open space where paths meet. Passengers are usually processed at the simple terminal location and then routed down a "pier" where aircraft are parked in the "finger" slots or gates for boarding.
11 Airport Terminal Design Pier Satellite TerminalKLIA AirportThis configuration involves a single terminal where all the ticketing and passenger processing takes place.Connected to this are numerous concourses that lead to one or more satellite structures.Need high speed escalators, monorails or electric-powered carts to reduce walking distances.Pier satellite terminal/ Remote satellite terminalThis configuration involves a single terminal where all the ticketing and passenger processing takes place. Connected to this are numerous concourses that lead to one or more satellite structures. At the end of each concourse the aircraft are parked in a cluster. This increases the distance a passenger must walk to get from one terminal to another or one gate to another. People-mover systems are employed in these settings to reduce these walking distances. These systems can be high speed escalators, monorails or electric-powered carts. This design concept lends itself to a compact central terminal, but is difficult to expand without disrupting airport operations.
12 Airport Terminal Design Transporter TerminalTampa AirportIn this concept passengers are transported to and from the building to the parked airplane.With this concept, aircraft can be parked remotely from the terminal buildings thus increasing the amount of aircraft embarking and disembarking passengers.Airplane taxiing time to and from the runway is decreased as well as reduce the amount of aircraft engine noise around the terminal.transporter terminal (remote aircraft parking concept)This concept is currently in use at Dulles International Airport and Tampa International Airport. In this concept passengers are transported to and from the building to the parked airplane. The mobile lounge can also be used as holding rooms for waiting passengers at gate positions. Airplanes are parked at gates placed along parallel rows. Several sets of parallel parking rows can be created as increased traffic deems such expansion necessary. This design has excellent expansion capabilities and can maintain the pace with increased airport usage. With this concept, aircraft can be parked remotely from the terminal buildings thus increasing the amount of aircraft enplaning and deplaning passengers. Airplane taxiing time to and from the runway is decreased as well as the amount of aircraft engine noise around the terminal.

34 Aer Lingus Self Check-in Kiosk at Dublin Airport Airport Check-in are service counters found at commercial airports handling commercial air travel. The check-in is normally handled by an airline or a handling agent working on behalf of an airline. Passengers usually hand over any baggage they do not wish or are not allowed to carry-on to the aircraft's cabin and receive a boarding pass before they can proceed to board their aircraft.Check-in countersAer Lingus Self Check-in Kiosk at Dublin Airport
35 Immigration Duties Immigration responsible for: Monitor persons who leave or enter the country,Checking for appropriate documentation,Arresting people wanted by international arrest warrants.Block the entry of dangerous people to the country.
36 Security ChecksConfirming the identity of travelers, Checking a photo ID & transports.Body Screening using Metal Detector GateBaggage scanning using X-ray machineOne of the most important security measures at an airport isconfirming the identity of travelers. This is done by checkinga photo ID, such as a driver's license. If you are travelinginternationally, you need to present your passport
38 Custom Duties Customs responsible for : The processing of people, carriers, cargo, and mail into and out of the country.(including animals & hazardous items)The proper collection of taxes, fees, penalties for imported items.The prohibition of narcotics and illegal drugs.

Bags became wedged under the DCVs which were bumping into each other near the load point.ResultInadequate performance caused several delays in the airport’s opening totaling 16 monthsAutomated system was designed with no backup system in placeAn additional 5 months was required to build a traditional tug and cart system at a cost of 51 million dollarsDebts came due prior to the airport’s opening costing the airport 1.1 million dollars day in interest and opportunity costCost overrun totaled over 253 million dollarsTotal Airport cost amounted to more than 4 billion dollarsWhat went wrong?Despite its importance, the baggage handling system was an afterthoughtThe airport was 2 years into construction before the baggage system was consideredThe system would have to be retrofit into the airport as it was designed initially including narrow tunnels and tunnels with sharp turns making it extremely difficult to navigate the DCVsThe time constraint was impossible to overcomeThe 21 month schedule precluded extensive physical testing or simulation of the full system designMore significant problemsReliable DeliverySystem consists of over a hundred waiting lines that feed into each otherBelt will only advance when there is an empty cartEmpty carts will only arrive after they have deposited their loadsCascade of queuesPattern of loads on the system are highly variableDepend on the season, time of day, type of aircraftThe number of possible scenarios is enormousComplexitySystem of this size providing time sensitive delivery of materials on such a large scale had never been done before12x as many carts traveling 10x the speed of carts typically used at that timeNot just an increase in complexity relative to current systems, but a leap in complexitySystem must track tens of thousands of bags going to hundreds of destinations – all in real timeDistributed computer systemIn addition to regular error checking, software must guard against electrical disturbances in the communications, have multiple levels of redundancy and be able to recover from errors very rapidlyMisreadsCompounded by the fact that not only are the scanners required to read data from the tags attached to the baggage, but the information must also be transmitted by radio to devices on each of the DCVs. This duality compounds the errors.Line-Balancing problemAll lines of flow should have balanced serviceNeed to have sufficient empty carts to accommodate the bags coming off the conveyor beltIn a postmortem simulation, the inability of the system to provide adequate empty carts was the primary cause of its failure. A simulation was also completed prior to the start of the project, but due to a lack of communication, BAE was not notified by airport officials of the results; The results stated, in essence, that the system would not work as it was initially designed
