Abstract: Airport delays are increasingly significantly. These delays are largely attributable to increased congestion on runways and at gates as airlines increasingly use smaller but more frequently-departing passenger jets. This paper proposes reducing congestion by auctioning off takeoff and landing slots at airports. These auctions would have several benefits: they would redistribute airport facilities toward higher-valued uses, incentivize airlines to make more efficient use of airport capacity, and generate revenue to fund airport improvements and capacity expansion.
