This initiated the concept of moving the control-separation tasks from the ATC to the aircraft, which will try to optimize their routes. The concept called Free Flight allows monitoring of the surrounding traffic by the pilots instead of by the ATC on the ground, by using the convenient cockpit display supported by the automatic dependent surveillance broadcast.

This means that slots are not necessarily used by the airlines that value them the most; another allocation might lead to higher welfare. Welfare levels at airports following the first-come, first-served principle also do not reach optimal welfare levels because of congestion costs. Privatization is thus not enough to ensure efficient operation of the airport system. A system in which each airport is at its optimal capacity in relation to demand and its complementary airports, and in which the capacity is optimally distributed over the airlines, is necessary to exploit the maximum benefits airports can offer.

Since hub airports generally have more traffic than ‘spoke’ airports, a hub position may be desirable. For instance, airports with a hub position may be an important stimulant to the regional economy. To obtain such a desirable position, airports can offer hubbing airlines favourable operating conditions, such as low airport charges, sufficient capacity, and so on. But it is important to realize that airlines operate hub-and-spoke networks to exploit density economies. By maximizing load factors, airlines are able to operate with relatively low average costs per passenger.
