BALANCING THE COSTS OF RESCUE SERVICES AND FIRE FIGHTING AMONG DIFFERENT CATEGORIES OF AIRPORTS

The difficulties that minor airports face in financing rescue services and fire fighting procedures suitable for the largest airplanes are examined, and the costs are analyzed with respect to traffic. A method of balancing costs is proposed which is based on the total traffic of the airport as the total traffic is a determinant of its actual resources. Cost-efficiency optimization is considered.
