Simulation is an effective method to reflect real life situations as well as possible future solutions. Airport modeling and simulation provides great benefits to decision makers to identify potential bottlenecks and operational constraints of an airport via simulating a model of the airport. This work will present a metamodel which will help airport designers to develop airport plans and evaluate alternative options prior to implementation. The metamodel will be used to draw airport design models, and to transform these models into discrete event simulation models automatically. This work will initiate the research on model driven development of airport simulation models.
