Abstract: In this paper, the two innovative non-parametric models, the Luenberger productivity model and the Luenberger-Hicks-Moorsteen productivity indicator, are used to estimate the productivity of UK airports. The airports are ranked according to their total productivity over ten years showing that the majority of UK airports did not improve their efficiency during the period. Economic implications arising from the study are derived.
