The New Pricing Policy of the British Airports Authority

The New Pricing Policy of the British Airports Authority

The authors set out the new method and scale of charges now in force at Heathrow and Gatwick airports and explain the underlying principles. All-up weight is no longer the sole criterion: fees vary also according to number of passengers, and there is a peak surcharge at Heathrow and a minimum landing fee of £2, increased to £5 at Gatwick during summer weekends. Charter services will pay proportionately more than before. The minimum landing fee is expected to deter some general aviation, leaving more capacity for larger aircraft.

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.
