Airport forecasting and planning has tended to focus on gradual and incremental change (rising traffic levels as the economy grows), but it is arguable that infrequent one-off events (COVID-19, 9/11, etc.) have had as much impact on airport development as macroeconomic conditions. The objective of this research is to specifically address how airports can incorporate large-scale, unpredictable shock events into traffic forecasting and airport planning (both physical and financial).
