How to pay Gateway Debts: Sell the Airport

December 19, 2014

Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport is finally in the black but has $75 million in debts to pay. The logical solution is not to further burden Mesa taxpayers or any of the other owners of the airport but rather to sell it. Airports around the world often have operating expenses that are much too high because they are owned by governments or run by governments. They also often extort aircraft companies that use these airports by charging exorbitant fees.
These facts have been well recognized for years and there is a trend around the world to privatize air operations and to sell airports. However, airports in the United States have been slow to catch on. Gateway should set an example by selling itself and letting the flying public see what wonderful things a private owner could accomplish when they are freed from bureaucratic and inefficient governments.
