Use of Separate Short Runways for Commuter and General Aviation Traffic at Major Airports 800762

This paper presents a summary of the analysis to investigate the top 30 air carrier airports for the potential utilization of new or existing short runways under IFR conditions, and to estimate the potential IFR delay savings that would result from this use.
