Conference paper
Part of the Springer Proceedings in Business and Economics book series (SPBE)


Airports are stable providers of infrastructure assets, even in the sometimes turbulent aviation industry. While airports and airlines are intrinsically linked and rely on one another to operate efficiently, they are based on different business models. Airlines are able to move quickly to respond to changes in traffic flows, by leasing or retiring capacity. Airports, on the other hand, must make long-term planning decisions to safeguard capacity sometimes 50 years into the future. The main aim of this article is to present the charges for access to the air transport infrastructure. The article presents natural charges, legal sources, and selected prices for access to Polish air transport infrastructure.
