An airport is a combination of a large and diverse facilities, systems, users, workers, rules and regulations (IATA, 2004). Therefore, airport master plans have a multi-disciplinary and complex structure that calls for political and social decisions requiring planning, engineering and technical designs, including operation and management techniques. Karadeniz Technical University (KTU) Airport Workgroup have developed a new model for airport master planning which considers the multi-disciplinary and complex structure of airport master plans, and integrates the traditional airport master planning process as defined by International Air Transport Association (IATA) with a strategic planning approach. This new model was used in Trabzon Airport Revision Master Planning, and this paper sets out the developed planning model, its process and its results as seen in this case.
