Tuesday, December 8 from 2:00 PM – 3:15 PM EST


Across the industry all airports are being severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, airports are experiencing historic decrease in their passenger and revenue levels and uncertainty with their future traffic. How are airports meeting their financial obligations during their unique environments, and how should they be better prepared for the near term?

This webinar features five airports that represent large, medium and small hub airports with different rate-making methodologies, which will share their perspectives on the current economic situation of their airports and how they are positioning their airports to ensure charging mechanisms supporting their financial recovery.

The speakers will share lessons learnt from this pandemic about different rate methodologies: what has transpired as it relates to risk/reward sharing with the airlines, whether residual airports found themselves in a stronger or weaker position, and how compensatory airports mitigated their risks. Additionally, the speakers will discuss how the current situation affected their Capital Improvement Programs and present their views on mutually beneficial commercial relations between airports and airlines.
