When the shoe doesn't quite fit: Regulating large commercial airports with expanding roles
Appold, Stephen & Baker, Douglas C. (2010) When the shoe doesn't quite fit: Regulating large commercial airports with expanding roles. In Viegas, J & Macario, R (Eds.) Proceedings of the 12th WCTR World Conference on Transport Research, World Conference on Transport Research Society, Lisbon, Portugal, pp. 1-26.
Airports, whether publicly or privately owned or operated fill both public and private roles. They need to act as public infrastructure providers and as businesses which cover their operating costs. That leads to special governance concerns with respect to consumers and competitors which are only beginning to be addressed. These challenges are highlighted both by shifts in ownership status and by the expansion of roles performed by airports as passenger and cargo volumes continue to increase and as nearby urban areas expand outward towards airports. We survey five ways in which the regulatory shoe doesn‟t quite fit the needs. Our findings suggest that, while ad hoc measures limit political tension, new governance measures are needed.
