The 28th Airport Council International (ACI) World Annual General Assembly (WAGA) which was recently held in Brussels, Belgium, approved resolutions committing ACI to maximizing the contributions of airports to maintaining and developing a safe, secure, environmentally sustainable, and customer-centric aviation system worldwide.
The WAGA unanimously approved the six resolutions which include: an effective approach to cyber security, upholding United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 9 which is to build resilient infrastructure, encouraging airports to take action on resilience and adaptation to climate change, urging member airports to submit safety data to ACI, and appreciation for Host (Brussels Airport).
“Our Assembly Resolutions advance ACI’s initiatives by setting out its aims and objectives on subjects of immediate concern to the world’s airport industry,” says Angela Gittens, Director General, ACI World. “Our members were proactive in telling us their interests and sharing their concerns. This year’s resolutions put a particular focus on evolving and emerging threats that could become impediments to the airport industry meeting the ever-increasing air service demand.”
“As the voice of the world’s airports, ACI World is the only organization that can bring together airports, large and small, from all regions to agree strong measures to address the issues that affect us all,” says Bongani Maseko, Chair, ACI World. “I would like to thank ACI Member airports for their collective response and commitment to act on these pressing issues and I pledge airports to continue to approach our common industry concerns in the future in a collaborative and transparent manner,” he adds.
