The main purpose of the paper is to develop an analytical model for estimating runway capacity of Haneda airport in Tokyo which will have a new 4th runway in late 2010. The impact of the sequencing of the aircrafts’ departures/arrivals considering wake turbulence category was analyzed by using a more heuristic model which considers the feasibility of arrival spacing on final approach in practice. Haneda airport will eventually have two sets of open-parallel runways with crossing layout (16/34 L/R, 04/22 L/R). Consequently, the departure and arrival traffic will operate dependently with higher complexity than that of the current condition. By using the developed model, the necessary constraints on aircraft sequencing and spacing for attaining the runway capacity planned by the government and for expanding the capacity were analyzed.
