An Analysis of Airport Charges Characteristic

Charges are used as instruments to anticipate any change in traffic and other economic variables. Accordingly, charges need to be analyzed and predicted for anticipating future needs of airport operations and investment. Generally, an airport planner or management are concerned about the charges rates movement in the past. Based on empirical data of airport service charges, it has seen an irregular or unclear charges movement pattern. This pattern is influenced by a variable parameter of charges. In the cost-based concept, cost is a critical rule in making the value of charges for airport users. Other variables that are concerned in making a charging design are level of facility utilization and quality of services. Both variables have a correlation with the congestion issue and user satisfaction in the airport. This paper explores airport pricing based on these variables and analyzes their relationships by making a structure causality. By using the Bayesian Network (BN) method, a graphic model for probabilistic relationships, the authors examine uncertainty issues based on causality matters. As the output, the authors propose a BN graphic structure that provides conditional probability of charges variables.
