The author shows how factors of profitability and local needs have to be taken into account when considering whether to develop or maintain a provincial airport, with particular reference to Manchester airport. The financial ability to develop or expand must be related to the availability of capital finance within the local authority and to the balance of aviation revenues and costs. The author argues that because of current financial stringency a national airports plan should be developed to enable local authorities to decide their aiport development programmes.
