This paper is to presents the findings of a detailed financial and economic analysis of eighteen of the larger British airports. These findings are a initative step in the building up of a theory of airport economics. The analysis is based on detailed traffic and financial data compiled from questionnaires and a result of direct visits to all the airports in the sample. The eighteen airports covered are more than a mere sample, since taken together they account for about 95% of the air transport movements, of the passengers handled and of the freight traffic of all United Kingdom airports outside the Channel Islands.
