TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Synthesis 57: Airport Response to Special Events explores how airports plan, manage, and recover from special events in order to help minimize the event’s effects on an airport’s regular operations.

The synthesis explores issues related to planning, organizing, and applying lessons learned, as well as addressing potential surprises and impacts on operations and customer services related to a variety of non-aeronautical events that occur both on and off an airport. ACRP Synthesis 57 offers six case examples designed to help demonstrate how airports of all sizes plan, manage, and recover from special events.

ACRP Synthesis 57 can serve as a companion document to
ACRP Synthesis 41: Conducting Aeronautical Special Events at Airports. ACRP Synthesis 41 focuses on aeronautical events such as air shows, airport open houses, aircraft static displays, and fly-ins.
