In recent years, a successful revolutionary trend has developed in the aviation industry. Many publicly owned airports are now partnering with private operators and managers to bring efficiency and cost effectiveness to airport operations. This creates an opportunity for the private sector to invest capital into airports and develop airports in a way that is beneficial to the public. American Airports Corporation (AAC) is at the forefront of this fundamental change, demonstrating the skills, resources and proven track record necessary for successful public-private partnerships.
Founded in 1997 and headquartered in Santa Monica, California, American Airports Corporation is one of the largest general aviation airport management companies in the United States. AAC also develops and owns individual aviation facilities and fixed base operator (FBO) facilities. AAC provides a comprehensive program for development, operations and ownership of aviation-related projects and FBO operations by focusing on underutilized assets and offering aviation property owners the opportunity for increased returns on their assets, improved efficiencies and expanded economic opportunities.
