CapacityPlus: An innovative approach for managing capacity at commercial airports
In general, airport development plans are based on a mid and long-term forecast of passenger numbers. Dealing with an unexpected development or with short-term capacity demands presents airports with special challenges. Investment in permanent capacity expansion only makes sense if there is a long-term need for such additional capacity. On the other hand, trying to address the situation with existing infrastructure may result in an unacceptable drop in service quality and safety. In many such cases, setting up a temporary or interim airport terminal for a predefined period of time could be the answer. Innovative technologies and modern methodologies allow for such a terminal to be installed at short notice, in a very short period of time and at significantly lower costs compared with conventional implementations. Under the brand name of CapacityPlus, Siemens Infrastructure Logistics produces a variety of solutions aimed at closing short-term and interim capacity gaps.
