CHAPTER 10 Multiple-Use Facilities Atlanta's International Concourse E, Chicago's Midway Airport, and Chicago O'Hare's International Terminal 5 are examples of airports with common-use terminal facilities. In these examples, the airports contract with a third-party company that manages the facilities on behalf of the Airport in a third-party agreement. The regulations governing the tenant rules, policies, and procedures for use of the facilities may either be contained in the third-party agreement or set forth in a separate policy document. Ticket counters and gate holdroom areas are used by the airlines on a common-use or preferential-use basis. Other areas may be under exclusive leases (e.g., support offices and VIP lounges). Common-Use Terminal Equipment (CUTE) may be used under separate agreements or may be covered under provisions in the common-use regulations. Common-use agreements may also include fuel facilities. Critical issues in common-use management contracts are as follows: Parties to contract Term Scope of services Indemnity issues Ownership issues Resolution of disputes Compensation Rights and responsibilities of the parties Reporting 10.1 Parties to Contract The parties may include the airport, the airlines, and possibly a third-party management com- pany. If the agreement is between the airport and a third-party management company, the airlines may not be a party to the agreement, but subject to conditions of the agreement or sub- ject to common-use regulations that may be in a separate policy document. The terms of the air- line terminal lease or use agreement with the airport may contain provisions for common-use facilities as well. 10.2 Term Common-use terminal agreements tend to have shorter terms (i.e., 5 to 10 years) compared to longer terms (i.e., 10 years or more) for airline use agreements. 71
