  Airport - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Despite the reluctance to privatize airports in the United States (despite the FAA sponsoring a privatization program since 1996), the government-owned/commercially operated (GOCO) arrangement is the standard for the operation of commercial airports in the rest of the world.
Airports have a captive audience, and consequently the prices charged for food is generally higher than are available elsewhere in the region.
Airports may also be named after a person associated with the region it serves or prominent figures in aviation history, such as Liverpool John Lennon Airport or Kingsford Smith International Airport, named for the Australian aviation pioneer.
