final analysis, airports need to move on despite federal
funding, and being creative with generating additional
revenue and alternative funding will help them
accomplish that goal.

Generally speaking, we believe that there has been a
noticeable increase in the request for airport consulting
services both domestically and internationally in
calendar year 2014. Much of this was due to a broader
recognition of U.S.-based consulting services in
international markets, particularly in Europe and the
Middle East. However, the challenges facing airport
operators in these markets differ considerably.
We expect to see continuing challenges in the
domestic market resulting from the ongoing American
Airlines and US Airways merger and for the funding
of needed capital improvements, either from capacity
enhancement due to increasing demand in certain
markets or the refurbishment of existing facilities that
are limited by the current cap on PFCs.
We anticipate more of the same in international
markets in 2015. In Europe, U.S.-based firms are
assisting more airports with optimizing facilities and
enhancing revenues from non-aeronautical sources.
The majority of these efforts are for privatized airports
focused on maximizing business performance while
following a measured program for moderate but steady
growth in forecasted air traffic activity. In the Middle
East, the challenges are centered on expanding capacity
of airport facilities to keep pace with rapid expansion
of airlines. Activity in Asian markets seems to be
following a similar pattern, as has been the case over
the past several years. A
