3.1 – Selectivity in Air Transportation: Restrict, Influence or Choose
December 20, 2007 Leave a comment
Selectivity in combination with the introduction of a multi airport system has become a topic for future policymaking around Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AAS). Veldman enumerates several demand management measures like slot allocation and slot trading, pricing (charging and taxing), restrictions (limit traffic volumes or aircraft types), multi airport system (MAS, redistribution or outplacement of flights) and selectivity (changing the mix of flights). Selectivity as an instrument of direct demand management changes the mix of traffic and operations at an airport in a robust way. Long term growth of Schiphol in support of the mainport objective can be safeguarded with this new selectivity policy.
