At the 25th ACI EUROPE General Assembly, Congress & Exhibition, held in Prague in June, Augustin de Romanet, Chairman & CEO of Aéroports de Paris, was elected President of ACI EUROPE. He succeeds Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport Company, who served a two-year term in the role.
“I am honoured to take on the role of President of ACI EUROPE. Recent years have shown that the air transport sector must face multiple challenges and we need strong representation among policymakers and regulators at the European level,” de Romanet commented. “ACI EUROPE is a unique source of technical and legal expertise for our industry, and an exceptional facilitator in the exchange of knowledge and influence, which we must continue to develop. My priority will be to meet two major challenges: To enable Europe to capture global traffic, that is on the rise; and to develop the competitiveness of our airports in the face of competition from the other continents.”
