[March 6, 2019 – Hong Kong] ACI Asia-Pacific is pleased to announce that Mr. Tasneem Ejaz of GMR Hyderabad International Airport is named Young Executive of the Year 2019.

 

The ACI Asia-Pacific Young Executive of the Year Award (YEA) is an annual research paper competition which encourages young talents in the Asia-Pacific region to contribute innovative solutions for current aviation industry issues since its introduction in 2009. This year, candidates are required to contribute innovative solutions on the topic “How can airports understand and capitalize on their passengers’ needs to advance their strategic visions?”

 

Seven submissions were received and reviewed by a Panel of Judges (the Panel) chaired by Sheikh Aimen bin Ahmed Al-Hosni, CEO of Oman Airports and Secretary Treasurer of ACI Asia-Pacific.

 

The Panel concluded that the Mr. Ejaz’s submission demonstrated substantial research effort and provided thoughtful recommendations on understanding and fulfilling passengers’ needs in the context of airports.

 

Mrs. Patti Chau, Regional Director of ACI Asia-Pacific said, “I would like to congratulate Mr. Tasneem Ejaz of GMR Hyderabad International Airport for the impressive findings demonstrated in his paper. His submission provided innovative case studies for airports to reference on meeting passengers’ needs and expectations.”

 

“Although it is expected that the global aviation community will face a shortage of skilled aviation professionals, this year’s high standard submissions demonstrates that we have many young talents in our region who are passionate about the aviation industry. We look forward to celebrating these young talents in Hong Kong this April.”

 

 

This April 2-4, 2019, the 2019 ACI Asia-Pacific/World Annual General Assembly, Conference and Exhibition (WAGA) will be hosted by Hong Kong International Airport. Over the two-day conference, over 800 aviation leaders will explore the theme “What’s next for aviation? The future starts now.” The award ceremony for YEA will take place alongside WAGA on April 3.
