 PRIVATIZING LOS ANGELES INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: Analyzing the Alternatives
While airport privatization is still relatively new (as noted in Section I), evidence has accumulated from five years of BAA performance and two years of Toronto's Terminal 3 that supports the argument that privatization makes a significant difference in airports as well.
As noted in a recent report on airport privatization from the American Association of Airport Executives, such participation could be fostered by the formation of an ongoing citizens advisory board, naming prominent citizens to the airport company's board of directors, and holding regular meetings with civic and governmental organizations and committees.
If the privatized airport opts for the greater flexibility that would be permitted by foregoing federal grants and avoiding being subject to FAA grant agreements, it would be still subject to federal and state antitrust laws (unlike today's municipally owned LAX, which is exempt from those laws).
