This paper introduces the bootstrapping methodology to analyse and test the scale efficiency of airports. The results from a sample of 27 small and large UK airports indicate that most large airports are scale efficient or operating in a region of decreasing returns to scale, while most small airports are operating in a region of increasing returns to scale. We relate the results to the current industry trends and provide directions for future research.
