Can airports diversify their income streams as new technology comes online?

10 April, 2018

Whether it is car parking, land rents, terminal concessions or advertising, non aeronautical revenue sources comprise a significant portion of global airport revenues, with industry body Airports Council International (ACI) putting this figure at USD60.4 billion, or 40% of total revenues.

But, many questions still remain…

  • Will technology and new entrants change the revenue mix?
  • How can airports work smarter to maximise their profit margins?
  • Is technology a threat to revenues or an enabler?
  • Can airports balancing the burgeoning demands of the TNCs with the desirable car parking revenues (one at the expense of the other)?
  • How are airports innovating in advertising, commercial development and other non-aero means to compete effectively and to finance aeronautical operational needs?
