Strategic planning is essential for an airport to remain viable and to promote sustainable growth. The Strategic Plan reflects the examination of the macro-economic environment, key aviation industry trends that impact an Airport, a SWOT analysis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, quality service assessment of air services and a review of airport development opportunities. Based on the results of this assessment, a number of key strategies are then developed to achieve the airport’s vision and help guide the airport over the next five (5) years or longer.  In addition, this plan is directly linked to the Airport Master Plan and the Investment Attraction and Marketing Plan. The Strategic Plan also includes performance measures to track progress on an annual basis.
