Abstract : The paper is an attempt to develop a linear programming framework which will arrive at solutions to the problem of airport congestion at a given airport. The landing fee charged to aircraft for landing at the airport is used as a price mechanism to allocate airport facilities to potential users. Several models are developed in which the demand for and supply of airport facilities are equated within different policy frameworks. The policy frameworks include (1) allowing market forces to work without constraint, (2) passenger maximization, (3) a general framework in which various pricing schemes can be used, (4) profit maximization and (5) a multi-time period model in which a controlled level of congestion is allowed.
