This report is based on the workshop organised to examine Gateway Airport Investment

and Development of Airline Services for a Global Economy at the ITF's 2009 Forum on

Transport and Globalisation. The workshop focussed on financing airport infrastructure through

airport charges in light of the competitive interaction between airports and airlines. Participants

discussed the circumstances in which pricing and investment should be regulated and how this

might be most successfully done.

The workshop brought together airlines, airports and regulators to explore ways to improve

the functioning of the aviation industry to ensure adequate airport infrastructure. The exchange

focussed on ensuring that in the future airport charges foster airport and airline development

that best serves the interests of both air passengers and the wider community.
