Description:
This paper develops a positive theory of two-way capital flows-the outward flight of productive capital, and inward foreign direct investment that acquires ownership of local production units. The model exploits insights from decision-making under uncertainty, and traces out how entrepreneurial incentive to engage in risky production impacts equilibrium returns on capital. Contrary to expectation, productive assets tend to flow from capital-poor to capital-rich economies, while foreign direct investment follows the reversed pattern. By examining the nature of optimal interventions, the paper also demonstrates the inherent conflict of interests between host and source countries engaged in capital market liberalization.

IKIA (Iman Khomeini International Airport)
IKIA (Iman Khomeini International Airport)
45Km South of Tehran

TEHRAN AIRPORT CONSTRUCTION, IRAN

A new airport opened in Tehran, Iran, in February 2001. Imam Khomeini International Airport (IKIA) is equipped with advanced aviation technology and is estimated to have cost almost $1 billion. Associated investment projects, carried out by either private or public enterprises, include aircraft hangars, in-flight catering, hotel, duty-free shops, fuel supply and passenger and cargo handling facilities.
MARKET RATIONALE

This new airport will take over all domestic and international flights from the Mehrabad Airport (Tehran's other international airport). Studies carried out by the Civil Aviation Organisation (CAO) of Iran recognised that the present airport could not be upgraded and expanded to meet the expected growth levels.

Imam Khomeini International Airport is located in a 15 hectare area located some 30km to the south of Tehran on the Tehran-Qom highway. Work on the project began before the Islamic Revolution during the 1970s but was halted due to political circumstances. Overall responsibility for the project rests with the ministry for roads and transportation.
PROJECT TIMESCALE AND SIZE

Work on the airport started in 1994 and is due to progress in various phases. The first phase, completed by February 2001, initially gives a capacity of 12 million passengers and 200,000t of cargo a year. Depending on demand, the design allows for further expansion to 20 million passengers and 375,000t of cargo, with a final phase scheduled capacity of 40 million passengers and 700,000t of cargo.
RUNWAY

Phase 1 included construction of a single runway of 4,200m by 45m, with 10.5m-wide shoulders. A total of 12.8km of taxiway area connects runways with passenger and cargo terminals, hangars and a 30m-wide engine test pad. The apron area is more than 450,000m? wide to accommodate a total of 24 aircraft.
CONTROL TOWER

The 56.9m-high control tower has an area of 1,100m?. The four-storey, glass-fronted technical block spans 6,800m?. Navigation aids include the 755 DVOR (Doppler, very-high frequency, omni-directional radio range) supplied by the UK company Fernau, the 2020 DME (distance measuring equipment) and the Normarc ILS NM 7000 instrument landing system, providing the airport with CAT III approach and landing capability.
TERMINAL BUILDING

The passenger terminal building of 78,357m? is a three-level structure comprising a basement, departure and arrival halls at ground level, as well as a mezzanine arrivals floor. 14 air bridges link the aircraft, piers and gate lounges. 1,800 car parking spaces in a two-storey car park can be reached via footbridges. Two-level access roads separate arrivals and departures. Supporting structures include administration, services, maintenance, airport police and security guard buildings, and nearly 100 residential buildings on a 10,000m? complex.
UTILITIES

The remote location of IKIA has placed considerable demands on the supply of utilities. A branch line was laid from the main gas trunk line to the east of the Qum highway, while wells were drilled for water supply. This is only sufficient for a few years of operations and the eventual aim is to transfer and treat water from Tehran's reservoirs. Tehran refinery is establishing a fuel supply through a new 250mm-diameter pipeline, 33km long. Distribution of utilities around the airport will be facilitated via a 2,850m concrete tunnel. Telecommunications contracts have been awarded and work is in progress to link the new airport to Mehrabad with around 400 communication lines, increasing to 2,000 lines in the future.
LEAD CONTRACTORS

Aeroports de Paris (ADP) was responsible for the master plan and preliminary design, and is undertaking supervision of procurement, installation, commissioning and testing of airport equipment and systems, as well as co-ordination and integration. The main contractors are two Iranian companies, Dey and Melli Sakhteman. Fernau (UK) is one of the international contractors working on for the project.

Removalgroup Reviews Complaints - UK Airport Travel Update 2
About 500 flights were halted – and others delayed – across Europe on Tuesday as the eruption of Grimsvotn volcano in Iceland caused havoc at airports in Scotland and northern England. Last night the Met Office had forecast a plume of high density ash over the UK on Friday, at a height of 35,000ft and above. This prompted the CAA to look at changing the ash regulations just in case a cloud hits the UK at 35,000ft on Friday. Current rules prevent "underflying" the cloud even though 35,000ft is roughly the maximum cruising height for airlines. This would prevent aircraft at Heathrow and other major airports taking off and landing even though they would not reach the cloud's altitude while in the area. The government is also seeking to borrow an atmosphere monitoring plane from Ireland or Germany because the one it has ordered – specifically for ash purposes – will not be ready until July. On Tuesday the International Air Transport Association wrote to Hammond bemoaning the lack of monitoring aircraft. In the meantime the UK government is co-operating with commercial carriers such as BA to monitor the cloud. The ash cloud ruined the plans of thousands of travellers travelling to and from northern Germany, when airports in Bremen, Hamburg and Berlin were shut as a safety precaution, hitting flights operated by BA, BMI, easyJet and Ryanair.
