This paper discusses a case study of the capacity of the Chennai International Airport. The capacity of an airport is an important determinant for implementation of Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM), departure/arrival slot allocation, etc. and is a key input while estimating when the airport will saturate, in order to plan additional infrastructure, at places where catchment area population is not the limiting factor. The simulation model layout of the airport was considered for the study. Total airport delay such as gate delay, TWY delay, seq. delay, RWY delay, posing delay, and total delay for the base model and capacity model were analyzed. Air traffic movement of actual and simulation models was compared.
