We adapt popular video-games technology for an agent-based crowd simulation framework in an airport terminal. To achieve this, we investigate game technology, crowd simulation and the unique traits of airports. Our findings are implemented in a virtual airport environment that exploits a scalable layered intelligence technique in combination with physics middleware and a social force approach for crowd simulation. Our experiments show that
the framework runs at interactive frame-rate and evaluate the scalability with increasing number of agents demonstrating event triggered airport behaviour.
