BEACON aims to study the feasibility of extending user-driven prioritisation process (UDPP) to allow multi-prioritisation processes in the airspace and exchange of slots between airlines. It will build two models: a strategic model and a detailed tactical simulator. To properly capture the agents' behaviours, BEACON will make use of behavioural economics.
