dc.description.abstractThis paper deals with alternative policy options for tackling congestion and environmentalproblems in the German airport sector. The starting point of the discussion is the plannedprivatisation of several airports in Germany, which is normally justified on productiveefficiency grounds. However, when designing an appropriate airport policy, allocativeefficiency must also be regarded, which means the efficient usage of existing facilities andtimely investment in new capacity. Airport charges must not only reflect operational costs ofinfrastructure supply but also take account of the social costs of airport usage. This papershows the inefficiency of the current regulatory rules for solving congestion andenvironmental problems and proposes alternative solutions, taking into account the need forplanning stability not only for the airlines but also for the airports, which is a prerequisite forlowering the transaction costs of the air transport and infrastructure system.-
