Investigation of market dynamics over time in a market for Air Traffic Flow Management Slots

DescriptionIn the SlotMachine project, we have proposed a market mechanism that allows airlines to swap slots of flights. We now want to investigate market dynamics over time using simulations: Under a market mechanism based on combinatorial auctions with delay credits, different research questions arise concerning the proper functioning of the slot swapping system, which you will work on together with your advisor. Should there be artificial credit inflation/devaluation over time? Are there strategies for airspace users that will give them an unfair advantage in the market? How can stakeholders other than airspace users, e.g., airports, ANSPs, state their preferences regarding flight prioritization?
