Business need to strike a balance between their objectives. E.g. Manchester Airport aim is to provide a good service, with height levels of customer satisfaction and efficient use of resources.

The events of 11th of September had a great effect on the airports as more and more people were not willing to travel abroad at all because of the fear that the plane might get targeted by an anti air missile or the plane itself might be driven by a terrorist or somebody has a remote assistance over the plane. All theses reduced the number of passengers willing to travel abroad and so airlines' profit like Manchester Airport profit fell by a dramatic amount. Growth at Manchester airport has been limited by the oppositions of the British Government to an open skies policy which affected the growth of Manchester airport . Manchester airport needs restrictions to be left by the government I order to be able to competieon equal terms with other airports.
