Quick Response: Airport Organizational Redesign

As in other settings, airports continue to reshape their workforce and organizational structure, transform their business model, or move in a new strategic direction. Yet even after a year, airports may still not have realized the anticipated benefits. As airports look to make dramatic and unanticipated changes in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and other factors, they will benefit from practical guidelines for making the needed changes “stick.” Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Synthesis 40: Issues with Airport Organization and Reorganization (2013) explored past and then-current practices in operational design. Since then, however, much research on organizational redesign has been done outside the airport industry, as organizational needs and models continue to evolve. Additional research is therefore needed to translate recommended practice to the airport setting. The objective of this research is to provide airports with resources and guidelines to facilitate the desired transformation they seek within their organization.
