WE promote a wider understanding of
the challenges facing civil aviation in Europe
We represent over 500 airports in 45 European countries. In 2015, our member airports handled over 90% of commercial air traffic in Europe, welcoming more than 1.9 billion passengers, 18.9 million tonnes of freight and 22.8 million aircraft movements. These airports contribute to the employment of 12.3 million people, generating €675 billion each year (4.1%) of GDP in Europe. Based in Brussels, we lead and serve the European airport industry and maintain strong links with other ACI regions throughout the world.
THE VOICE OF EUROPE’S AIRPORTS
Our membership is comprised of airport operators of all sizes, along with national airport associations, educational establishments and world business partners. Working together in an active association to ensure effective communication and negotiation with legislative, commercial, technical, environmental, passenger and other interests. The members of ACI EUROPE are competitors in the airport market place and support free and fair competition as a trade policy and a legal concept.
ACI EUROPE is the European trade body for airports and as such, is also the European region of Airports Council International, the only global federation of airport operators. ACI EUROPE is based in Brussels, Belgium and employs a full time staff of 19 people, under the leadership of Director General Olivier Jankovec.
