2. GREENFIELD AIRPORT
A greenfield airport is an aviation facility with greenfield project
characteristics. The designation reflects certain environmental
qualities (using previously undeveloped or empty greenfield
land, for example) and commissioning, planning and
construction processes that are generally carried out from
scratch. While a green field in nature is defined as a wide
expanse of natural land (meadow, prairie, grassland), here
greenfield denotes that a project lacks any constraints imposed
upon it by prior work or existing infrastructure
5. AN AIRPORT IS MAINLY DIVIDED INTO TWO AREAS
Runways, Taxiways, Ramps
6. AIRPORT TERMINALAND PASSENGER TERMINAL
• An airport terminal is a building at an airport where passengers
transfer between ground transportation and the facilities that allow
them to board and disembark from an aircraft.
• Within the terminal, passengers purchase tickets, transfer their
luggage, and go through security. The buildings that provide access
to the airplanes (via gates) are typically called concourses.
However, the terms "terminal" and "concourse" are sometimes used
interchangeably, depending on the configuration of the airport.
13. An air operator's certificate (AOC) is the approval
granted by a civil aviation authority (CAA) to
an aircraft operator to allow it to use aircraft for commercial
purposes. This requires the operator to have personnel,
assets, and system in place to ensure the safety of its
employees, and the general public. The certificate will list
the aircraft types, and registrations to be used, for what
purpose and in what area – specific airports or geographic

21. What are airport charges?
Airport charges are paid by airlines for the use of airport facilities. They include
aircraft landing, freight and other charges related to the use of airport infrastructure
such as runways and passenger terminals. Ultimately these charges are paid,
indirectly, by passengers and freight customers via the ticket price or freight
Charges are applied in different ways, depending on the service they cover.
Passenger charges are levied per passenger whilst other charges are applied per
aircraft landing or take-off.
22. Why is Europe involved?
Charges for the use of airport infrastructure can represent a significant expense for
airlines. In the European single market, there is no justification for airport charges to be
applied in a discriminatory manner, to the detriment or advantage of certain carriers. For
the European aviation market to work properly it is important that there be minimum
standards for charges at larger airports in order to ensure fair competition among
airlines. Such common standards, however, need to respect the different systems of
regulation which are in operation in the Member States and which might be designed to
compensate for the market power of the airport as the sole infrastructure provider at a
given city or in a given region.

28. • The words "hub" and "spoke" create a pretty vivid
image of how this system works. A hub is a central
airport that flights are routed through,
and spokes are the routes that planes take out of the
hub airport. Most major airlines have multiple
hubs. They claim that hubs allow them to offer
more flights for passengers.
• Today, most airlines have at least one
central airport that their flights have to go through.
From that hub, the spoke flights take passengers to

29. • The main overarching ICAO policy on aircraft noise is
the Balanced Approach to Aircraft Noise Management,
adopted by the ICAO Assembly in its 33rd Session (2001) and
reaffirmed in all the subsequent Assembly Sessions
(reference: ICAO Resolution A39-1 Appendix C).
The four principal elements of the Balanced Approach to Aircraft
Noise Management are as follows
