Movement Time as a Cost in Airport Operations

Movement Time as a Cost in Airport Operations

Landing fees at most of the larger airports proportional to the gross weight of the aircraft. the author argues that a more efficient basis would be time occupied in landing and take-off. This would mean a large increase in fees paid by light aircraft, which might thus be induced to transfer to less congested airports.

Optimal Public transport Price and Service Frequency

Because values of time and passenger behaviour depend on the level of frequency it is found that: (1) in urban public transport there may be one low-deficit local optimum and one high-deficit local optimum, one of which is global; (2) contrary to what might be expected, optimal financial deficit per passenger is typically larger for high frequency services than for low-frequency services; (3) the optimal off-peak may exceed the optimal peak price.
