Aeronautical charging policy incentive schemes for airlines at European airports

This paper introduces the concept of incentive schemes that may accompany airports' aeronautical charging policies and develops a taxonomy of such schemes based on an analysis of data for 46 European Airports held in the RDC Aviation database ( This taxonomy details the different types of incentive schemes that are in operation. It is clear that their use is widespread and that the magnitude of the incentive is often significant. A financial benchmarking analysis is undertaken for four selected airports to illustrate the extent of the variations between airports both in terms of the basic characteristics of the incentive schemes and in the periods over which the discounts are available.
