41% Rise of Private Ownership at Europe’s Airports, ACI-Europe Reports

    The Airports Council International Europe (ACI-Europe) has a released an updated 2016 Ownership report, revealing the dramatic rise of private investment in Europe’s airports since ACI-Europe last issued the report in 2010.

    The number of European airports with some share of private ownership has risen to 41% of European airports—205 in all—up from 22% in 2010.

    Nearly 39% of these (79 airports) are entirely privately owned, and 61% (126 airports) are variable percentage ’public-private’ ownerships.

    Larger airports, which handle close to 75% of Europe’s passenger traffic, have the most private shareholders.
