Airport decision makers are frequently facing complex decision-making problems related to airport planning, design, and operations. The airport decision-making process is further perplexed by the large number of stakeholders having different, and sometimes conflicting, objectives regarding the assessment of the airport performance. Despite the rich experience in both models and tools for airport performance analysis, existing models and tools address only fragmented parts of the airport decision-making process. At present, airport stakeholders lack models and tools able to provide an integrated view of the total airport processes and analyze the tradeoffs between the various measures of airport effectiveness. The objective of this paper is threefold: (i) to introduce the concept of total airport performance analysis, (ii) to describe the development of a Decision Support System capable of performing integrated airport analysis, and (iii) to demonstrate the capabilities of this Decision Support System by analyzing a real-world airport planning case of the Athens International Airport.
