Accounts at a number of airports of varying traffic levels were examined, and it was found that in general, for the larger airports, terminal area revenues constitute two-thirds of total airport revenues. This ratio decreases as airport size decreases in terms of passengers handled, and for non-hub airports it drops substantially. However, it costs a great deal to generate this revenue. It has been estimated that approximately 75 percent of the total funds will be required for terminal area development. A graph is used to illustrate terminal area revenues compared to airport size. It is noted that 25 percent of terminal revenues (17 percent of total airport revenues) are accounted for by space rentals; 75 percent are concession revenues. The different types of terminal concessions are discussed.
