There is probably a better method than what I do, but I just pause the flight, take the time compression to 8x, then reduce it back to Normal speed & Unpause the flight.  Time Compression to 8x removes all AI traffic and when you set it back to normal, new aircraft, etc. will load and it's very unlikely for another aircraft to come in your way at the runway or on approach.  Try it and see if it works for you.

Take a look at AI-Companion in the Alpha-India website. It's no longer being updated for FSX, but the FSX/P3D2/P3D3 version still works great.  I'm almost, completely, positively sure it contains a traffic limiting feature.  Don't know if it contains a traffic zapper feature though.

FSUIPC has a zapper key - Z. It's only for AI planes directly in front of you. It has a loud bang and the airplane disappears. If you have FSUIPC installed load a flight press ALT and go to Addons then click FSUIPC and you'll find it under KEY PRESSES.

I use Alpha-India's AI-Manager. It's written for P3D, but has limited support for FSX.  The major downside is that while it does almost everything automatically for P3D, large parts of it are a manual process for FSX.

That is why I don't recommend it unless you have tons of patience and time. It literally takes "hours and hours" to install and  maintain as flight plans are updated. Also, while the authors have been pretty good about keeping FSX in the loop for liveries, with MSFS, P3D and FSX to support that is waning.

I wrote a tutorial last year if you want to browse it to get an idea what using AI-Manager with FSX involves. 

Links to both are embedded in the message above.  Good luck.
