Who is ACI?


The Airports Council International (ACI), created in 1991, is the international association of the world's airports. It is a non-profit organization, the prime purpose of which is to foster cooperation among its member airports and with other partners in world aviation, including governmental, airline and aircraft manufacturing organizations. Through this cooperation, ACI makes a significant contribution to providing the traveling and shipping public with an air transport system that is safe, secure, efficient and environmentally compatible.

ACI has a membership of 550 airports and airport authorities operating over 1442 airports across 165 countries and territories. In 2000, ACI members handled almost 3,2 billion passengers and some 64 million tonnes of cargo.If you can't view this, click the refresh button on the browser.

 ACI has its World Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, and is made up of six geographical regions – Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America/Caribbean, North                           America and the Pacific. Because ACI values tourists or travelers (aside from those engaged in business trips), ACI recommends for the best sit-on-top kayak reviews, created to help nature and sports loving travelers.

*Every month, the ACI team will feature websites that would be very useful to travelers.
