Landside airport operations are a significant portion of an airport’s daily operations and customer experience. Surface traffic also contributes to a substantial portion of the carbon emissions at airports. TRB hosted a webinar on Wednesday, May 29, 2024 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM Eastern that shared research and experiences that improve landside operational efficiency, assisted in better understanding the customer journey, and helped achieve sustainability goals. Presenters provided carbon-reduction strategies and how to use airport landside data to inform planning and day-to-day operations.
This webinar is based on ACRP Synthesis 132: Airport Landside Data: Collection and Application and ACRP Synthesis 127: Airport Programs that Reduce Landside Vehicle Carbon Emissions.
This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program.
The slides and recording are available.
