ACI EUROPE Activities
As always, June is an important month for ACI EUROPE, with European airports, their business and industry partners, policy makers and regulators gathering together for our Annual General Assembly, Congress and Exhibition, which this time around takes place in Paris. This year’s Congress is about addressing the many challenges faced by the 21st century airport, and it is no surprise that the environment and in particular, climate change will be one of the key issues for discussion. By Olivier Jankovec, Director General, ACI EUROPE.
The never-ending escalation of fuel costs and the consequences of the global credit crunch have already taken their toll on aviation. Although Europe appears to be in a better position compared to the US, the near future definitely looks grimmer. The decision of Ryanair to ground 20 of its aircraft for this year’s winter season is quite revealing, not least because it will directly impact upon several European airports and their communities. By Olivier Jankovec, Director General, ACI EUROPE.
As competition has become the rule of the game for airports across Europe, the need to attract and retain customers is now key to airport operations. By Olivier Jankovec, Director General, ACI EUROPE.
As airport managers across Europe breath a sigh of relief that the peak summer season did not see any major terrorist attacks on aviation, this has not necessarily been a quiet summer for all. By Olivier Jankovec, Director General, ACI EUROPE.
