The Transport Economists’ Group, formed in 1973, provides a forum for people involved in transport economics to meet regularly and discuss matters of mutual interest. Membership is open to economists working in transport and others whose work is connected with transport economics. The aim of the Group is to improve the quality of transport management, planning and decision making by promoting lectures, discussions and publications related to the economics of transport and of the environment within which the industry functions.

The next meeting of the Transport Economists’ Group will be held at 17:30 for 18:00 on Wednesday 26 June 2019 at Arup at 13 Fitzroy Street, London W1T 4BQ
Ivan Viehoff of Cambridge Economic Policy Associates will speak on “Alternative institutional structures for airports”
Ivan Viehoff is the chief economist at consultancy Cambridge Economic Policy Associates. He has previously worked at Booz & Co and NERA Economic Consulting on a diverse range of sectors of the economy. Today he focuses mainly on policy and regulatory issues in the transport and energy sectors, and increasingly on the issue that links them, emission reduction in transport.
The presentation will focus on alternatives where one or more terminals is operated by a different party. It is based on work CEPA carried out in 2018, as subcontractor to Oxford Economics, for the Department of Transport Tourism and Sport in Ireland, but will be a general study of the issue, and not a specific study of the situation in Dublin.
The terms of reference specifically mentioned alternatives that could provide greater choice for airport users. The report was published, with some redactions, as “Review of the Capacity Needs of the State Airports” at http://www.dttas.ie/aviation/publications/english/review-capacity-needs-ireland’s-state-airports. Volume 2, written by CEPA, includes the study of institutional structures, financial and regulatory issues in relation to Dublin Airport.
