Private Financing of Airport Infrastructure Expansions

July 2015

In the almost two decades since Australia privatised its capital city airports, sustained passenger growth has now used up most of those airports’ then spare capacity. Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth airports are now each engaged in the planning and execution of capacity expansions on a scale that, amongst privately-owned airports not subject to formal price control, is without precedent, globally.

Greg Houston recently delivered an ‘Aviation Insights Series’ address to the Singapore Aviation Academy on the economic and financial challenges arising when major airport capacity upgrades must be planned, financed and built on a foundation of voluntary commercial agreements with airlines. Greg’s presentation can be accessed here.
