This study was based on the assessment of Airside Capacity Utilization at an International Airport; the Runway is the focus of this study. Capacities are very important and this dictates the level of patronage made by airlines at the Airport. Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) as a case study was examined; the domestic and international traffic flow well assessed on a daily basis, over a period of sixteen (16) years, to determine the traffic intensity of the airport was obtained from Federal Aviation Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and Nigerian Airspace Management Agencies (NAMA). This experimental research involved the estimation of the traffic flow, installed capacity of the Runway, the intensity of traffic on hourly, daily, monthly bases. The model adopted for the research was Queue Theory. Findings show that the domestic wing generates more traffic flow than international wing of the Runway. The through put at the Runways shows that the runway is adequately utilized to accommodate existing traffic, expansion in the form of construction will not be necessary.</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> Stephens, M.

In the methodology, Single-server queue system was modelled based on Poisson Process with the introduction of Laplace Transform. It is concluded that the performance of University transport bus shuttle is 96.6 percent which indicates a very good performance such that the supply of shuttle bus in FUTA is capable of meeting the demand.</p> Sidiq Okwudili Ben ##submission.copyrightStatement## Sat, 10 Aug 2019 19:53:25 +0600
