Airport Privatisation: How to reap the benefits and avoid the pitfalls

IATA DG and CEO Alexandre de Juniac has stated the appointment of Prince Muhammad Bin Salman as Crown Prince of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia “heralds a period of transformation”, welcoming the earmarking of 28 airports for privatisation. But airport privatisation has had a patchy track record worldwide.

So, what can Saudi Arabia and other markets learn from airport privatisation initiatives elsewhere?

This will be one of the topic areas discussed at the forthcoming CAPA- Centre for Aviation Global Airport Leader’s Forum that takes place in Dubai, UAE on 07-May-2018.

Understanding aviation markets is CAPA’s great strength and passion and this year’s agenda includes a variety of topics sure to generate interest. Airport Privatisation: How to reap the benefits and avoid the pitfalls will be a panel session at the Dubai forum on the afternoon of 07-May-2018.

The high-level aviation event is a forum for debate and discussion of strategic issues facing the aviation industry and it is attracting delegate interest from across the globe.
