Once the airport is sold (likely spring 2007)....what are going to be the first developments any new owner will be looking to address?

My thoughts are;

1. Terminal expansion (particularly security and departure lounge areas)
2. Runway improvements / extension / ILS improvements

The obvious point is attracting further air traffic as that's what the airport is all about. This will become far easier if the above two points are addressed. The terminal at peak times is at bursting point.

Anyone else any thoughts ?
