Finally it is intention of this study foreseeing its future developments and interlinks to the surrounded area so to enable the reader to acquire a broad and up-to-date insight of this state-controlled enterprise.

11 Introduction This research wishes to analyse the long term strategy, in terms of traffic growth and financial performance of the secondary south-western airport of Trapani following the initial challenge to aim entirely on low cost carriers. Taking incisive policy measures and persistent efforts to countertendency the past directions, the new airport managerial figures open their station to a new company policy able to reach traffic peak values as never before in the fifty year story since its opening to civil traffic. Exploiting the ongoing success of the well-known and widespread distributed Irish low cost airline was a essential passage to come out from the previous slack market and the positive results arrived in a short time. However the investment grants to adapt the entire terminal infrastructure and man power organization weighted down the balance sheet which still suffers of arrears and bad debts driving so the airport management to urgent and corrective recovery actions. These can only be planned in the long term period and undertaken with a thorough analysis, risk assessment and a full support by all parts and local authorities involved. Analyzing the existing company policy and its planning is the basic principle to foresee the future consequences as this research wishes anticipate.
