Airport Governance Structure Effects on Post Covid-19 recovery

Among the case study airports in ACRP-1-42, how did the governance model affect how the airport responded. What recovery goals were achieve. How did measures of performance change if at all. How did G/A airports fare in the recovery compared to commercial service airports.

Background (Describe the current situation or problem in the industry, and how your idea would address it.)

Some have suggested that the recovery of commercial service airports post COVID-19 will be extremely competitive. Can a change in the governance model make an airport more competitive? The scholarly literature measures things like efficiency which is a least related to being competitive. What about resilience?

Objective (What is the desired product or result that will help the airport industry?)

A follow on study to ACRP 1-42 that examines how the case study airports fared post COVID-19

Approach (Describe in general terms the steps you think are needed to achieve the objective.)

post COVID-19 literature review, update of the web tool developed for ACRP 1-42, analysis of case studies from ACRP 1-42 post COVID-19

Related Research - List related ACRP and other industry research; describe gaps (see link to Research Roadmaps above), and describe how your idea would address these gaps. This is a critical element of a synthesis topic submission.
