Business Planning and Enhancement

An airport’s Business Plan represents the heart of its viability and potential. Typically these plans are wide ranging, taking into account the whole airport business, its traffic, revenues, costs and investment requirements over a period of time.

All airports have unique characteristics and these need to be reflected in the airport business planning process.

The principal activities include:-

  • The development of business plans for new and existing businesses
  • Business planning for acquisition/disposal
  • The ‘Airport Health Check©’

MPD can develop detailed business plans for new business opportunities or for specific circumstances e.g. acquisition or disposal.
An increasingly popular service, particularly in the current economic climate, is our AIRPORT HEALTH CHECK© service.  

This service evaluates your existing business plan to identify its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, potential threats and viability.

Using our industry experience together with international benchmarks, MPD then tailors business enhancement solutions to your airport(s).

This includes the identification of strategies and plans to maximise retail and commercial revenues from shopping, car parking and property, enabling greater profitability and facilitating the funding of future investment.

Revenue enhancement strategies are considered in parallel with a thorough review of major cost categories and strategies for improvement are recommended, taking into account requirements for quality and customer service standards.

Experience of Business Planning & Enhancement


MPD undertook a comprehensive business planning exercise for a major regional airport in the Philippines which involved projecting estimated revenues, costs and capital expenditure over a 25 year planning horizon as well as producing estimates of travel demand over the period in one of the fastest growing air transport markets in the world.


MPD produced a comprehensive assessment of a proposed greenfield airport development in Bulgaria. This study included a Master Plan, an operational airspace (safeguarding) assessment, a physical assessment of the quality of the existing infrastructure (and recommendations on required improvements), a traffic forecast and a business plan indicating the viability of the proposed development. This study was undertaken for a major financial institution.


MPD was advisor to the Macquarie/Cintra consortium on business planning issues associated with its successful acquisition of Bristol International Airport in the UK.


MPD undertook advisory work to a syndicate of lending banks on the viability of the business plan for the new Athens International Airport.


MPD was the principal airport business planning advisor for the privatization of Malta International Airport.
