Aviation official speaks in support of larger airport
Thursday, March 30, 2006
He says larger planes won't solve the impending congestion problem. Martin - speaking on KPBS Radio's These Days program - says he learned that, while working on a similar problem at Boston's Logan Airport.
Martin: It does create a false hope, and I'll say this from personal experience, that you can make the problem go away because you've succeeded at ratcheting up the aircraft size by ten percent. You've put off the date where your going to have a material problem with delays and capacity.
The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority hopes to pick a location for a new or larger airport by the end of Spring. Voters would weigh in on the site in November.
