Airport and Aviation Systems

Airport development, including aviation system studies, airport master plans, architecture, site studies, financial appraisals and environmental studies are ICT’s forte. Our design and engineering experience encompasses all phases of project development. ICT’s specializations include planning of facilities for passengers and cargo terminals, hangars, air traffic control centers, airfield ground lighting systems, navaids, other operational buildings, fuel hydrant systems, approach roads, car parks, runways, aprons, taxiways, etc. ICT also provides integrated consultancy services in traffic forecasts, site selection, conceptual layouts, master planning, detailed engineering, techno-economic analysis of airport investments and execution of airport systems, including specialized studies in connection with setting up of Aviation Training Centers.

Airport Master Planning

The object of Master Planning of an airport for the up-gradation of an existing airport or a green field airport is to plan facilities conforming to International Civil Aviation Organisation Standards and Recommended Practices. Activities undertaken for master planning include:

  • Land Use Planning
  • Design of Terminal Building, Cargo Complex and Ancillary Buildings
  • Design of Airside facilities i.e., Runway, Taxiway and Apron, etc.
  • Design of Land Side Facilities
  • Provision of Commercial Activities
  • Provision of Airline Maintenance Hangars
  • Provision of airline MRO Facility, etc.
  • Provision of ATC Tower & Technical Block
  • Provision of Radio Navigational Aids

Traffic Study, Forecast and Analysis

To make traffic assessments for an airport for aircraft and commercial operations, it is important to understand economic potential of the hinterland / region where the airport is proposed to be established / upgraded. The study helps in planning airport facilities for Aircraft / Commercial Operations. The study includes the following:

  • Past trends, present strengths and prospective development scenario
  • Comparative statement of Transport connectivity
  • Study of population employment, income, or Gross Domestic Product (GDP)
  • Interaction with Stake Holders
  • Traffic Forecast for passengers, cargo, etc. including selection of Design Aircraft
