Fitting Airport Privatisation to Purpose. Aligning Governance, Time and Management Focus

This paper describes how airports were once the sole responsibility of their governments, liberalization of economies has seen administrative interest in airport spaces divested increasingly towards market led authority. Extant literature suggests that actions in decision spaces can be described under broad idealized forms of governance, however, in looking at a sample of 18 different airports it is apparent that these classic models are insufficient to appreciate the contextual complexity of each case. Issues of institutional arrangements, privatization, and management focus are reviewed against existing governance modes to produce a model for informing privatization decisions, based on the contextual needs of the individual airport and region. Expanding governance modes to include emergent airport arrangements both contribute to the existing literature, and provides a framework to assist policy makers and those charged with the operation of airports to design effective governance models.
