Airport Infrastructure

Aviation Infrastructure plays a critical role in the U.S. and international transportation system. Through airports and other connecting transportation modes, aviation infrastructure is an economic cornerstone for multiple airport stakeholders: airport sponsors; direct users (passengers); commercial carriers; service providing tenants such as FBOs, MROs and ACMs; other service providers and even non-travelers such as airport authorities, employees and visitors.
