题 目：Airport Business in the 21st Century
Airports were traditionally owned and managed by the governments. However especially in the last decades airport management has undergone dramatic changes. Today private sector has entered airport business not only as a financer but also as operator and manager. From the public utility viewpoint, Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) are becoming a reliable method for governments. New and enormous airport projects such as Istanbul New Airport can be realized through private sector finance without any burden on public expenditure. In this business transformation era, there are also technological, environmental, and social transformations that have impact on airport business. Airport managers should consider all of these factors in a turbulent environment in the 21st century.
