Detailed surface surveillance datasets from sources such as the Airport Surface Detection Equipment, Model-X (ASDE-X) have the potential to be used for analysis of airport operations, in addition to their primary purpose of enhancing safety. In this paper, we describe how airport performance characteristics such as departure queue dynamics and throughput can be analyzed using surface surveillance data. We also propose and evaluate several metrics to measure the daily operational performance of an airport, and present them for the speci c case of Boston Logan International Airport.
