Airport departure operations constitute an important source of airline delays and passenger frustration. Excessive surface traffic is the cause of increased controller and pilot workload; It is also the source of increased emissions; It worsens traffic safety and often does not yield improved runway throughput. Acknowledging this fact, this paper explores some of the feedback mechanisms by which airport traffic can be optimized in real time according to its current degree of congestion. In particular, it examines the environmnetal benefits that improved surveillance technologies can bring in the context of gate- or spot-release aircraft strategies. It is shown that improvements can lead yield 4% to 6% emission reductions for busy airports like New-York La Guardia or Seattle Tacoma. These benefits come on top of the benefits already obtained by adopting threshold strategies currently under evaluation.
