Added value

ADP Ingénierie (ADPI) has developed a successful and close working relationship with the client and has already proven in the past its global expertise and its ability to anticipate.  

Masterplan of the existing Gimhae Airport


Given the current increase in traffic, the client needs to increase the capacity of its existing infrastructure. Initially, the client was planning to build a new airport in the Yougnam Region. Based on ADP Ingénierie’s proposal, they decided instead to expand the existing airport (Busan-Gimhae). The company responsible for the master plan study of the airport expansion needs to develop the runway operating procedure and demonstrate control of the associated risks, through a safety study, as well as its effectiveness through simulation and various benchmarks.

  • The client's initial requirement was a site search to build a new international airport in the Younganm Region due to increased traffic at the existing airport (Busan-Gimhae). 
  • Confirm that the proposed runway system (which includes a new runway as part of the expansion) can be safely operated.
  • Minimize the impact of the new runway (including noise) on surrounding populations.

Our solution

2015-2016: ADP Ingénierie recommended extending the existing airport rather than designing a new one. It is proposing a master plan for this.

2018: designing flight procedures, defining the operating procedure for the proposed runway system and demonstrating its safety compliance and operational efficiency. The technical study per se has not yet started (waiting for customer data).
