2015 ACI Airport Economics Report
Airports are complex businesses that operate in unique and evolving physical, financial and regulatory environments. Thus, monitoring industry activity based on quantifiable barometers is critical to evidence-based decision making. This edition of the ACI Airport Economics Report presents global analyses relative to airport activity for the financial year 2014. An in-depth analysis of air transport demand across the globe and in key emerging markets is presented. As in previous years, the bedrock of the report consists of summaries of and commentary on industry revenues (aeronautical and non-aeronautical) by source and costs (operating and capital), and their evolution over time.
The content of this report is based on an annual survey that generated responses from 818 airports for the 2014 financial year. Together, these airports handled 4.8 billion passengers or about 71% of worldwide passenger traffic in 2014.
