Airports around the globe are managing limited infrastructure resources while passenger throughput (both commercial and general aviation) continues to rise. Efficient airport operations require the commitment of many diverse stakeholders and constituencies, especially those or airport sponsors, operational management teams and other airport tenants.
Aviation Strategic Development Companies act as sponsors for infrastructure planning and development. These experienced operators can provide turnkey solution for strategic development or acquisition; their capabilities allow them to access all segments of the funding spectrum to source capital critical for development of aviation infrastructure and operating companies.
In the U.S. private capital has been relatively slow late to providing on-airport investment. That has changed in the last 20 years, however, as private equity and alternative asset managers have invested in key on-airport service providers such as Fixed Base Operators, or FBOs, as well as ground handlers. These holdings have brought institutional capital closer to airport infrastructure as well. With Aviation Project and Management Services, it is possible to streamline the general complex, multi-faceted and regulated work streams performed in airport operations. Private capital is willing to invest in the enterprise wide systems required to provide real time reporting and decision making tools for airport sponsors and management teams.
Airport Facility Management Services are centered on upgrading both execution (customer service) and financial returns through the outsourcing of facility infrastructure requirements. They design and execute varying types of management structures to meet the needs of diverse customers, ranging from airport sponsors to on-airport service providers such as FBOs, Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) providers and Aircraft Charter and Management (ACM) companies. Numerous management organizations also focus on core airport infrastructure.
These Aviation Infrastructure Development Services include market and competitive analysis focusing on industry trends and the subsequent impacts on demand drivers. Access to accurate and timely market information, accumulated from multiple, independent sources, is critical to informed decision making. Professional aviation management companies can use their expertise to guide you through the complex competitive and regulatory environment, whether it is advising as to the footprint of a greenfield FBO or streamlining the dispatch and operations work streams of a heavy jet Part 135 ACM operation.
Finding management services
Effective Aviation Infrastructure Development depends on expertise, a proven track record and the agility to create a bespoke solution for each situation. The right management company must also have a culture of transparency and achievement, whether the situation in question is based on a small regional airport or is part of a global international network. Along these lines, management companies should be able to give multiple references which support their prior work capabilities and capacities.
