L&B has provided planning services to all of the top 50 airports in the U.S. and to dozens of airports in the world's most rapidly growing aviation markets.

Whether the challenge is to create a master plan for a new airport or to assist an existing facility expand to meet increased demand and ever-evolving service requirements, we understand that the starting point for the planning process must be a clear understanding of the mission and goals of our clients, their stakeholders, and the communities they serve. We also understand that the key to maximizing the operational performance of an airport is to achieve an optimal balance between the capacity of the airfield and surrounding airspace, the passenger and cargo terminals and their associated apron areas, and the roadways and transport services that link the airport to its neighboring regions. This unified planning approach is a hallmark in our ability to deliver to our clients planning solutions that are flexible, feasible, operationally sound, cost-effective, and environmentally sustainable.
