Airport airside planning and design is an essential process to provide guidance for construction, rehabilitation and development phases and to accommodate the required capacity and efficiency for airport operations based on international safety standards, recommendations, regulations and local limitations. However, airport operators are suffering from infrequent and unexpected risks that could occur and lead to reduced safety margins in airport airsides. Furthermore, safety is one of the most common challenges in airside operations; it should be periodically assessed and deeply investigated, tracking the causes of the risks and their potential impacts. To cope with these challenges, this thesis demonstrates a novel approach of safety design assessment process models to assess, review and manage planning and design during the existing conditions of an airport airside lifecycle by combining three techniques. This is a new methodology for incorporating risk assessment in airport airside planning and design systems and provides a helpful and periodical evaluation and decision-making tool. It is a useful model for airport stakeholders to investigate, quantify, and mitigate the possible functional safety threats to their operation. It will help to avoid underlying precursory hazards that contribute to airside safety risks and could increase awareness of potential risk situations.
