Planning Components

MAPS offers a complete and integrated solution (“one-stop-shop-solution”) for all elementary planning areas of an airport. The central focus is the integration of planning areas into an integrated overall solution.

Unlike traditional solutions, MAPS offers many advantages:

Integration of all Basic Planning Areas

MAPS provides a fully integrated, comprehensive prognosis model, from the traffic forecast to the forecast of the future necessary personnel and asset capacities to the investment forecast and financial forecast up to the prognosis of the resulting environmental effects.

Thinking in Alternatives

MAPS enables the rapid creation of alternative development scenarios and the parallel evaluation of individual plan variants (planning in bandwidths). In addition, MAPS provides a selection of tools for comparing and evaluating alternative development scenarios.

Interactive Processes

MAPS allows interactive use in team-oriented planning processes in the course of which alternative forecast assumptions can be played through in a few minutes and compared to other scenarios. As a result, rapid and efficient decision-making processes are developed, in which external experts can also be involved.

Customized Solutions for Airports of any Size

MAPS offers the possibility to design the planning model, or individual planning areas, according to the individual requirements of the airport in terms of level of detail and planning horizon. This can be used to set individual focal points or, on the other hand, to reduce less relevant aspects. Each airport can thus implement its own tailor-made solution.


All MAPS building blocks can be acquired in the form of licensing applications from the airport operator and used with their own personnel in their own operation. This significantly reduces the costs for external services while at the same time developing their own know-how. Of course, our planning experts are always available as consultants or as a back-up for technical support services.

MAPS consists of the five planning components:



Integrated air and ground traffic planning



Integrated personnel, capacity and investment program planning for technical equipment and facilities



Integrated revenue and cost planning, balance sheet planning, financing and cash flow statement



Forecast of macroeconomic and environmental impacts of air transport at the site and in the region



Integration of all planning elements, comparison and evaluation of alternative development scenarios, airport development concept
