The passage of a five-year Federal Aviation Administration funding bill in September 2018 did not include a much-lobbied-for increase in the cap on Passenger Facilities Charges.

This panel will discuss alternative means of funding projects - from P3 approaches to state and local funding - as airports grapple with aging facilities, rising passenger numbers and financial realities.
Moderator: Steve Van Beek, director and head of North American aviation, Steer
