Privatizing Australian Airports: Ownership, Divestment and Financial Performance

Chris Aulich () and Mark Hughes ()

Public Organization Review, 2013, vol. 13, issue 2, 175-184

Abstract: This article addresses the performance of the three largest Australian airports following their privatization. The airports represent cases of divestment of government business enterprises into privately-owned businesses each with differing ownership arrangements. The performances of the privatized airports are considered using financial data obtained from general purpose financial reports of the entities. There are significant implications for future divestment policies, including the value of divestment as a policy response in uncompetitive environments, the use of particular infrastructure investment models, and the nature of the linkage between ownership structure and financial performance.
