The Future Of Airport Infrastructure In The United States


The Muse Hotel
130 W. 46th Street
New York, New York

Event Details


For decades, airport infrastructure in the United States has been funded by the tax-exempt bond market, user fees and federal spending. Today, these sources of funds are dwindling, at the same time that airport infrastructure needs are rapidly increasing. After years of inactivity, this dichotomy is prompting a rise in the use of private capital to operate, finance, manage and maintain airports in this country. Speaker Emmett McCann, a Managing Director at the Oaktree Infrastructure Fund, will discuss the market opportunity and recent successes (and failures) in the use of Public-Private Partnerships in the US airport market.
