CONSIDERATIONS IN SETTING AIRPORT USER CHARGES IN CANADA

Airports present opportunities to government to further many desirable aims. Decisions on building and operating airports may be taken for reasons additional to provide a place for aircraft to land and take-off. The aims of air carriers are much simpler than those of government. They are concerned with market forces, not social forces. They desire airport facilities that would be responsive to demonstrable need, and supplied at market prices. This paper points to a set of principles for the setting of user charges upon which the interests of airlines and government might be reconciled. /TRRL/
