Air Pollution Effects on Aircrafts Movement in and Around Airport: Solutions and Recommendations (Case Study: Djalaluddin Airport, Gorontalo, Indonesia)

Sakti Adji Adisasmita    

Abstract: The study was conducted by collecting information/data from Djalaluddin airport, Gorontalo, Indonesia in order to measure, prevent or minimize the air pollution impacts on airports and its surrounding, such that air pollution impacts can be managed and monitored effectively and efficiently not only in the current situation but also in the future conditions. The data used were primary and secondary data. The primary data were based on field survey, interview and discussion with official government and people who live next to the airport while secondary data was based on data collected from various agencies, namely the directorate general of air transport department, the statistic central bureau and so on. Analytical tools used to measure the passenger and aircrafts movement by regression analysis and air pollution impacts by Gaussian Plume formula. The solutions and recommendations of the study were based on the information of distinctive standard, technology, procedures methods and tools regarding to the air pollution measures from data collected. In general, the solutions and recommendations of this study can be summarized that air pollution impacts at almost measured points were still below the range of air pollution standards; beside aircraft take-off and landing, air pollution impacts also comes from vehicles traffic activities, not only to/from airport but also from traffic flows in and around airport, caused by housing area located next to the airport, such that this conditions influence the airport operation activities.
