ATRS Airport Benchmarking

The ATRS Global Airport Benchmarking Task Force was initiated in 2000 to establish unbiased and consistent performance indicators for various aspects of airports' operation, and to provide a meaningful global comparison of airport performance.

The report measures and compares the performance of several important aspects of airport operation, including productivity and efficiency, unit costs and cost competitiveness, financial results and airport charges.  The report also examines the relationships between various performance measures and airport characteristics as well as management strategies in order to provide a better understanding of the observed differences in airport performance.  The 2016 report includes 205 airports and 24 airport groups of various sizes and ownership forms in Asia Pacific, Europe and North America.
