Airport development is critical to economic growth and poverty reduction. Governments need all the tools available to ensure world-class airport infrastructure and services. Public Private Partnerships offer a particular opportunity in airports. In fact, much of the developed world uses PPP to ensure investment and service delivery in the airport sector. This book will help decision-makers analyse their context and assess whether PPP might be viable for airport development. It walks the reader through the airport PPP process, from early preparation to bringing the project to market and managing the project during implementation. The book will also help eradicate misconceptions and myths that have been distracting policy makers from the role of the private sector in airport infrastructure and its potential. By doing this, it will help them focus on the true objectives and pursue feasible expectations with respect to what the airport can achieve, in line with the value of the assets from the market perspective.

A Decision-Makers Guide to Public Private Partnerships in Airports provides an essential guide for those in a position to make decisions linked to airport development, to their advisers, their staff and also to students wishing to understand airport PPP.
