1800 passengers per rolling 60 minutes with a step of 10 minutes

Those maximum numbers are the result of a capacity study taking into account the presentation curves of passengers arrivals at the terminal. For the application of the parameters, it is considered that all passengers arrive at the terminal at the departure time of the flight.
