Corporatization of governmental institutions can be done well (e.g., NavCanada) or poorly (e.g., Canadian airports). The important variables are leadership, transparency, governance, and industry participation. Air traffic control is a natural monopoly, so pure for-profit privatization is a pretty bad idea. However, in some countries, corporatization has let to greater efficiency and economy in operations without jeopardizing safety, and removing economic from the national treasury.
We at McGill University studied the governance structures at ANSPs in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa, Switzerland and the UK.
