Natural windblown dust or dust from construction and maintenance activities, such as de-icing sand and resuspension, also have to be considered. Local air quality can be gauged by measuring the amount of pollutants in the air. In most big cities there are measurement stations which continuously measure the amount of some pollutants. It is also possible to estimate air quality with dispersion models. These consider the spatial and temporal dispersion of emissions, including the formation of secondary pollutants.

There are also complementarities on the cost side: think of, for instance, joint assets such as terminal buildings. In practice, it may be difficult to disentangle the operational costs for commercial and aeronautical use. In theory, a private operator will assign the cost of joint assets to the activity that has the lowest demand sensitivity. Most likely this concerns the aeronautical activities, although there exists hardly any empirical evidence on this. A common conjecture is that airports engage in cross-subsidization: aeronautical activities are financed by commercial activities.
