Our Priorities

ACI Asia-Pacific continually engages with our member airports in dealing with various agendas that are closely related to smooth operation and prosperity of airport businesses. Cooperating with our members, we seek to come up with solutions to common confronting issues and plans to build a better future for the airport community as a whole. These are some of the priorities that we concentrate to fulfill such purposes.

Aviation Security

ACI considers aviation security one of the top priorities in airport operations. Particularly after 9/11, airport security has undergone significant changes and began to look more at unforeseen terrorist threats. ACI aims to eradicate all forms of violence that may take place at the airport by creating consensus between airport members on implementing right security measures and programmes including but not limited to access control, preventive security screening as well as unusual behaviors detection. New challenges in cybersecurity are also being addressed to strengthen the capability and responsiveness of airports to cope with cyberattacks on airport systems which can greatly detriment airport operations. ACI is working closely with member airports, aviation authorities, ICAO, airlines, and other related stakeholders to come up with best policies which can facilitate maximum level of efficiency and effectiveness. The Regional Office inaugurated the Regional Aviation Security Committee in 2007 to collectively deal with aviation security issues in a timely manner.

Operational Safety

Safety remains a primary concern in all airports, thus requiring a considerable amount of resources and efforts commensurable to maintain an adequate level of safety demanded by international standards, most notably Annex 14. In aerodrome operations, all required procedures and practices undertaken before and after planes take off and land should coincide with undisputed standards in order to guarantee safe and efficient flight experience to all users with minimal disruption. Identifying safety hazards, planning and implementing a safety management system, an introduction of the latest technology in aiding safer flights, and construction of aerodrome facilities with adequate features are all elements of improving operational safety and safety standards of airports. To achieve such a goal, consultation with aircraft manufacturers and air navigation providers as well as working closely with aviation authorities is essential in forming more suitable policies and regulations to provide safe airport services. ACI is working on making collective opinions on airport safety from our airport members and formulating recommendations to all aviation communities to create safer grounds for air transportation. The Regional Operational Safety Committee (ROSC) was inaugurated in 2008 to facilitate the discussion on the safety of the airport and come up with a collective opinion of all the member airports.

Airport Economics

Airports are highly asset-intensive businesses that require many years to recover the significant scale of capital investment. They must be able to collect sufficient revenues to finance their future infrastructures at the same time maintain an adequate level of service to the airport users. To comply with this reality, airports come up with various business models as commercial enterprises and impose airport charges taking account of local economic and public policies. Basically, airport economy is about business sustainability, who owns and runs the airports, how they strive to make money in the long run for their further development and how they come up with positive economic impacts on the society as a whole. Their nature has transformed from a mere form of infrastructure to a matured business and inevitable competition arose between airports to take more share of the pie in the global aviation market. ACI analyzes different circumstances that different airports and regions are on and tries to come up with a position that will maximize the economic benefits of our members on various issues. The Regional Office inaugurated the Regional Economics Committee in 2015 to respond to the increasing concerns on airport economics in the overall operation of our member airports.

Airport development and operations should have minimal impact on our environment while promoting economic and social benefits to make this business more sustainable in the long run. ACI’s many environmental initiatives and programs are introduced to live up to this principle and are encouraging the airport community to invest in more environment-friendly facilities, and reduce carbon emission and wastes. The Regional Environment Committee was inaugurated in 2013 to promote discussion and share best practices on making the airports more eco-friendly.

Airport IT

Providing more convenient experiences and excellent service quality to all airport users has become one of the primary objectives of airports. Airports are committed to delivering better services with the help of Information Technology (IT). By implementing IT solutions in diverse fields, airports can more reliably and consistently meet with their operational requirements and better respond to quickly changing passenger demands. ACI facilitates the discussion on the development of the latest IT solutions for airports and promotes best and recommend practices and standards to be used among member airports. The Regional Airport IT Liaison Group was formed in 2009 to serve the above functions.

Human Resources

ACI advocates the importance of human resources development in the airport industry to develop professionals which will eventually elevate the level of airport operations and quality of services and promote future growth. Together with ACI World and training organizations around the region, we provide a variety of global training courses on different areas of airport operations and aviation industry. ACI is also providing a platform for discussion and exchange of best practices and is devoted to enhancing standards of HR excellence among member airports. The Regional Human Resources Committee was inaugurated in 2008 to perform those jobs more efficiently and effectively.
