Abstract

For the analysis and assessment of new air transport concepts, operating costs are one of the most important metrics. However, most hither to published methods are either outdated or limited functional sensitivities: especially when it concerns airport charges. Only a few methods take such important charges into account. Therefore, this paper focuses on the investigation of those more esoteric airport charges with intent to the identify aircraft and operational specific key parameters. The outcome of this study was the identification of main parameters and to establish values which are easily available and applicable for air transport concept assessment in the early conceptual design phase. The scope of work was based on 425 airports with their individual charge components. In total, nine different charge elements were identified and their impact globally determined in a quantitative sense in dependency on aircraft and operational parameters.
