CCR USA brings a robust set of tools to the table and will work with you to understand your vision and priorities as we shape your airport for future growth and success.
CCR is a long-term balance investor and operator. CCR USA brings a unique approach to innovative private partnerships with airport owners. We know every airport is different and we will work closely with airport stakeholders to develop structures that will meet the vision and priorities of the airport and its community.
The CCR Airport Division has significant experience developing and managing the design, construction, and management of airport facilities, ranging from single passenger terminals to greenfield capital city airports. The Airport Division currently serves over 22 million passengers annually at our four airports:
Through our partnership, your team will have access to a global network of aviation professionals and experience, ready and willing to help you achieve your long-term goals.
We bring decades-long industry experience to assist with a full-spectrum of operational efforts. Our relationships with relevant public agencies and airlines will bolster your credibility and provide a significant engine for economic development for the airport and the surrounding region.
Our approach to airport development is to first develop a Strategic Business Plan which is complementary with the Airport Master Plan. The Strategic Business Plan incorporates CCR’s best practices and know-how to ensure the financial performance of the airport over a given period of time exceeds the results it might otherwise achieve if investments are made solely on the Master Plan. In a Strategic Business Plan approach to airport planning and operations, the Master Plan falls out of the Strategic Plan.
Unlike other operators in the airport sector, CCR is a technology innovator with a cross-divisional capability with over 15,000 in-house employees who work across three classes of transportation infrastructure – airports, roads, and urban mobility. As a partner, we bring this wealth of technology and innovation to our projects.
As an additional asset, the CCR Airport Division portfolio includes Total Airport Services.
