A Model That Delivers

LaGuardia Gateway Partners 28

Why a Public-Private

U.S. airports will require almost

$76 billion in investment by 2019
to ensure they remain globally
competitive and meet projected
growth in passengers and cargo.

The traditional way of funding

airports through government grants
and passenger fees will fail to meet
that requirement.

Public-private partnerships
can fill that gap.
