Capital Investment Programmes
 
While air passenger and cargo traffic in North America has dipped in the face of global economic conditions, growth is expected to return, with the US Federal Aviation Administration forecasting an annual increase in passenger numbers of 2.5% in the 20 years from 2011. A major increase in operations at the nation’s 35 busiest airports is predicted over the same period.
 
Government initiatives such as Canada’s Airports Capital Assistance Program and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act are already helping to equip the air transport infrastructure for this future growth. In addition, major investments are in progress or planned at many of the continent’s principal hubs, generating significant opportunities for the sector’s suppliers.
