As airport leaders look to the future, it is important to consider how airports will fund their operations and investments and balance the risks in providing services to their customers and users while maintaining sound balance sheets.

Transportation Insights 3: The Future of Airport Finance, from TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program, provides a summary of an in-person discussion forum convened by ACRP for aviation leaders and stakeholders to identify new and emerging finance-related issues, explore their relevance to airport authorities, posit new strategies for funding capital and operating costs, and suggest ways the financial burden could be shared among the variety of customers, users, business partners, and stakeholders of airports.
