Airpot Project Undertaken
India > Delhi International Airport

Delhi International Airport Airside Planning and Design
From 1/2009 To 12/2009
In preparation for the Commonwealth Games in 2010, Delhi International Airport, India, undertook an extensive expansion and modernisation. The development project included a state of the art passenger terminal, and one of Asia’s longest runways. The new terminal will include more than 130 check-in counters, 70 emigration desks, 74 aircraft aerobridges and 56 passenger travelators incorporating ‘state of the art’ technologies such as self-service check-in and Multiple Aircraft Ramp Systems (MARS) stands. Airbiz was the primary planner of the terminal, airside /landside interface and the apron infrastructure. This involved confirmation of the aircraft parking layout and aircraft types to be accommodated at each of the 69 aircraft stands. The tasks included the design of the Fixed links and Passenger Boarding Bridge (PBB) geometry, Visual Docking Guidance Systems, Gate Identification Signs and the Apron Pavement Markings. In addition, determining the Ground Services Equipment (GSE) storage requirements and identification of its storage areas and the review of the PBB suppliers details and compatibility with the design. To help resolve the congested apron, Airbiz also assisted in the airside road configuration and the development of ramp servicing (GSE) operational plans.

Doha Airport – Terminal Simulation
From 9/2007 To 12/2008
Airbiz was engaged by an American consortium to review the design of Doha Airport using simulation modelling. Initially focussed solely on the passenger transfer component and the need to achieve a world-class minimum connect time, the simulation of the flow of passengers through the entire terminal was then commissioned including an assessment of corridor width, dwelling in discretionary areas such as retail and airline lounges, and a range of sensitivity scenarios aimed at stressing the terminal design under a combination of day-to-day delay patterns and equipment breakdown.

Hong Kong International Airport ITB Expansion
From 1/2008 To 12/2008
Airbiz provided critical terminal master planning input into the multimillion dollar enhancement project for the Hong Kong International Terminal. Our scope included providing direction for the project management and architectural teams to define busy hour throughput, passenger flows, passenger facilitation and area requirements to support the six projects aimed at reducing existing zones of congestion, improve way finding, meeting increased demand and to maximise exposure to retail outlets to increase revenues and passenger comfort. The projects included departures immigration and security halls reconfiguration, arrivals and transfer capacity redevelopment, arrivals central concourse flow improvements and commercial expansion, APM arrivals platform vertical circulation enhancements and overall passenger terminal building ambience and flow enhancements.

Calgary Airport International Facilities Project
From 8/2007 To 8/2013
Airbiz has been actively engaged in the Calgary Airport’s $1.4 billion International Terminal Project (IFP). Initial work on this multi-year project included demand and spatial analysis, functional terminal planning, and passenger simulation. In addition, Airbiz has been responsible for airside planning, including aircraft parking layouts, apron marking plans and passenger boarding bridge coordination. The project is scheduled for completion in 2015.

Qantas Next Generation Check-In
From 1/2011 To 12/2011
Airbiz was involved in the development of the Qantas Next Generation Check-In, a concept which has now been implemented at all Qantas domestic ports. This system incorporates new technologies which allow passengers to move through the check-in process with speed and ease, eliminating long wait times in queues. The concept allows frequent flyers to have an easier transition from kerb to security by simply touching their card on a reader. The process makes use of RFID technology in the airport environment and provides the introduction of self-service bag drops automated check-in kiosks, Q bag tags and Q card. In 2011 Airbiz received the Smart Systems Award at the Victorian Engineering Excellence Awards for its contribution to the development of this system.

Singapore Changi Airport Fast Travel Concept
From 12/2012 To 1/2013
Changi Airport Group (CAG) is implementing Fast Travel initiatives in existing Terminals 1, 2 and 3 primarily to create increased capacity during a period while overall airport capacity is reduced with the closure of the Budget Terminal, until new Terminal T4 is opened. Airbiz is assisting with the planning, design and implementation of these initiatives at all four CAG terminals, building off shared knowledge gained from T4 planning.

Melbourne Airport Southern Precinct Project
From 7/2011 To 12/2012
In addition to providing Melbourne Airport and the design team with terminal planning design advice, Airbiz was also appointed to design and simulate the incoming LLC airline kiosks and Automated Bag Drop units (ABD). To reflect the new technology and processes, the bag drop hall was specifically designed to be more spatially efficient than typical full-service check-in halls. The simulation study modelled a 2019 demand year and was set up to demonstrate the benefits of ABD, such as shorter queue lengths, minimal waiting, improved passenger experience, intuitive design, early check-in, reduced staffing, regulatory compliance and resilience.
