Air Transportation Infrastructure in Developing Countries: Privatization and Deregulation

The latter years of the twentieth century saw considerable movement toward loosening economic regulation across a wide range of industries. Initiated in higher-income countries, this trend has spread across much of the globe, although at different speeds and in a verity of forms. This chapter will look at developments in the changing regulatory environments under which airports and associated facilities are provided in developing countries. No firm line is drawn in defining a developing a country, but most nations in Africa fall under the definition, as do many countries in South America and parts of Asia, along with some of the transition states in Europe. The chapter covers all forms of economic regulatory changes that have occurred, including that of ownership and sets these within broader context of the growing importance of air transportation infrastructure to developing countries.
