ACI-NA Capital Needs Study

U.S. airports have an estimated $75.7 billion in infrastructure investment through 2019 necessary to accommodate growth in passenger and cargo activity, rehabilitate existing facilities, and support aircraft innovation, according to a new report released by Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA).

Airport Capital Development Needs: 2015-2019 details a comprehensive scope of airport infrastructure projects, including those projects not eligible for Airport Improvement Program (AIP) grant funding. This study focuses on all airport projects, not just those that are Airport Improvement Program (AIP) eligible, as is the case with the Federal Aviation Administration's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS) report.  ACI-NA estimates that U.S. airports have a collective funding need of $75.7 billion over the next five years, or $15.1 billion per year, to successfully complete these projects.
