MODELLING AIRPORT CONGESTION CHARGES

This article developed three models to evaluate congestion charging at an airport. The three models developed are: (1) a queuing model based on diffusion approximation for quantifying relevant congestion; (2) a model to estimate marginal delays and their costs imposed by each flight on other flights during congestion; and (3) a model to estimate the profitability of each flight burdened by the congestion charge from the airline's point of view. The models have been applied to the traffic scenarios at New York La Guardia airport. The application has indicated that the models proposed could be efficiently used under realistic traffic conditions. The results obtained from the models have confirmed the hypothesis that congestion charges might function as an economic measure of demand management at congested airports.
