Overview

Managing Airports presents a comprehensive and cutting-edge insight into today's international airport industry.

Approaching management topics from a strategic and commercial perspective rather than from an operational and technical angle, the book provides an innovative insight into the processes behind running a successful airport. This 4th edition has been fully revised and updated to reflect the many important developments in the management of airports and issues facing the aviation industry since the 3rd edition. The 4th edition features:

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Anne Graham’s book should be essential reading for anyone working, analyzing, investing, studying or just generally interested in the airport industry. It is one of the few books dedicated to the topic of airport management at an international level and it manages to capture the key fundamentals of the industry in a clear and concise way. Many of the issues raised in the book are timely, important, challenging and controversial, and Dr. Graham analyses these in detail, providing the essential background and presenting the perspectives of the different players. Managing Airports has become a true classic of the airport industry literature.'- Dr. Rafael Echevarne, Director, Economics and Program Development, ACI World

'Managing Airports’status as “ the top must read” for airport professionals, academics and researchers remains unaltered, especially with this new fourth edition. There have been significant changes in airport management since 2008, namely, the shifting balance of power towards emerging markets, increasing emphasis on service quality and enhancing the passenger experience and the airport having to cope with more challenging capital market conditions post-2008. All of these pressing issues have been incorporated in this new fourth edition. Readers will especially appreciate new chapters on airport operations and airport service quality which reflects the extent to which a growing number of airport operators have re- focussed in recent years on try to deliver an improved airport experience for their customers.' - Dr. Romano Pagliari
Senior Lecturer, Department of Air Transport, Cranfield University
