The Airport Business
Publisher: Routledge | ISBN: 0415081173 | edition 1992 | PDF | 240 pages | 3 mb
The Airport Business provides an overview of the field, examining patterns of ownership and control of the world's largest airports. Rigas Doganis covers the key issues which will affect airport managers during the 1990s, such as privatization, the growing shortfall in airport capacity, and the need to develop new and innovative sources of finance.
Doganis analyzes the traditional cost and revenue systems that have developed for aircraft landing fees and passenger charges. He compares this with more recent structures, such as marginal (as opposed to average) cost pricing. The need for a commercial strategy and the question of how to maximize airport revenue from the various airport activities are also discussed.
