Congestion Pricing and Capacity of Large Hub Airports: A Bottleneck Model with Stochastic Queues

Joseph Daniel

Econometrica, 1995, vol. 63, issue 2, 327-70

Abstract: This paper models and estimates congestion prices and capacity for large hub airports with stochastic queues, time-varying traffic rates, and endogenous intertemporal adjustment of traffic in response to queuing delay and fees. Relative costs of queuing and schedule delays are estimated using data from Minneapolis-St. Paul. Simulations calculate equilibrium traffic patterns, queuing delays, schedule delays, congestion fees, airport revenues, airport capacity, and efficiency gains. The paper also investigates whether a dominant airline internalizes delays its aircraft impose. It tests game-theoretic specifications with atomistic, Nash-dominant, Stackelberg-dominant, and collusive-airline traffic. Copyright 1995 by The Econometric Society.
