This past week (11/16/11) the GEG
airport board approved it's 2012 operating budget of $60,535,139 which is down 2% from last year. To a non-aviation business person like me that is a lot of money. My question is what are operating budgets like at the super airports like LAX
etc? If some of you think that GEG
has a high budget you may or may not know that includes Felts Field which is GA
has it's own fire, police, field maintenance and terminal maintenance. These are all union represented. GEG
also operates it's own parking and fuel farm. Nothing is contracted out (or outsourced as the PC
like to say.) Thanks for the info.
