ACI World & ITF enhance collaboration agreement

By Laura Shirk

At the Airports Council International (ACI) Latin America and Caribbean/World Annual General Assembly, Conference and Exhibition, ACI World and the International Transport Forum (ITF) exchanged Letters of Cooperation that will enable increased collaboration between the two organizations.

As the airport industry looks to re-build and forge the path for sustainable development, this arrangement will allow ACI World and ITF to achieve a more structured cooperation on policy topics encompassing economics, sustainability and capacity issues among other subjects. This collaboration will include:

- Participation in each other’s events including the ACI World Annual General Assembly (WAGA) and the ITF Summit, as well as the ITF Roundtable on Airport Capacity and Competition: Slot Allocation at Congested Airports

- Participation of ITF in ACI World meetings, committees and events that pertain to economics and environmental protection

- Contribution by ACI World on aviation reports for ITF, where suitable

- Cooperation on other initiatives related to promoting the sustainable development of the air transport industry at a global level

“I very much welcome this proposal of greater collaboration between ACI World and ITF, bringing ACI’s global airport industry perspective and knowledge with ITF’s deep understanding of the of the social, environmental and economic role of transport.

“Both organizations have distinct experience and expertise, and by sharing it we can go beyond anything we could achieve alone. I am therefore particularly grateful for this initiative at this opportune time, as we seek to bring the aviation industry back to full health, and at the same time to meet our collective and global responsibilities for a sustainable future,” says Luis Felipe de Oliviera, Director General, ACI World.

“I am delighted that our two organizations are strengthening their relationship with this exchange of letters. Today, we take the longstanding partnership between ACI World and the ITF has to a new level. We will intensify our cooperation on some of the most pressing questions for the aviation sector, notably on how to overcome the devastating impact of the pandemic on air travel in sustainable ways,” adds ITF Secretary General Young Tae Kim.
