Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

Airport Capacity and Competition Roundtable

Airport Capacity and Competition Roundtable
This Roundtable explores the effects of slot allocation at congested airports on aviation users and the environment.

A combination of increasing demand for air travel and constraints on the potential for airports to expand, especially around populated urban areas, has meant many airports are increasingly capacity constrained. Slot allocation is a tool designed to manage this. This Roundtable examines the impacts on connectivity and competition of the current mechanisms for allocating slots at congested airports, focusing on the outcomes of different slot allocation mechanisms for aviation users and how allocation and pricing of airport capacity can achieve better environmental performance.
