By applying specific pricing rules, a pragmatic approach is suggested to the establishment of a varying rate structure based on peak traffic demands. Two distinct cases of the development and management of the civil aviation sectors in different countries are noted, and the functions of a rate structure are defined and related to the conditions typically found in developing countries. The characteristics of the cost and rate structure of the components of the civil aviation infrastructure are summarized. Two operating situations in developing countries are noted: demand is insufficient relative to the capacity available; demand at peak usage exceeds supply. The pricing rules relevant to these situations are discussed. The technicalities in calculating congestion costs and devising an appropriate rate structure are discussed. The results of the proposed rate structure are noted. The impact of a rate structure embodying differential charges along with peak charges is considered as well as the role of rate structure based on user charges.
