With all the consolidation that has occurred in the airline industry in recent years, managing an airport has become increasingly challenging. Airlines used to own their own gates and the counters at each airport. This model worked well for airport management companies when there were many major airlines in operation with locked-in schedules. But with the industry now down to just a few major airlines, and with fuel costs rising, the number of flights has dropped. Today, airports own the gates and counters, and they
switch which airlines use each gate on a regular basis. This case study goes in depth about San Diego County Regional Airport Authority's created flexibility for a changing industry.
