Trillion Aviation

Financial Consulting Services

Given the return of steady passenger growth since the economic downturn in 2007 and 2008 and limitations of federal and Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) funds, airports throughout the U.S. have been challenged with implementing needed airfield and terminal capacity along with basic infrastructure improvements for aging facilities in the most cost effective manner possible. Airport operators are also focusing on enhancing the overall utilization of their facilities through measured growth and expansion. At the same time, the airlines are focusing on the careful allocation of airline fleets and tight control of aircraft seat capacity and reducing costs, including airport fees and charges. These often-opposing goals require airport operators to be creative to find ways to implement needed airport improvements, while minimizing airline costs.
