PLI - Peak Load Index
Schinwald/Hornung (2014) describe a procedure to quantify the level of capacity utilisation comparing two characteristic throughput values. The PLI is a measure for the time the airport operates traffic peaks. The BLI measures how much of the available capacity is used across the majority of the operating conditions.
