ACI is the only worldwide professional association of airport operators. ACI, headquartered in Geneva, is a non-profit-making organisation representing over 1,530 airports in 175 countries and territories worldwide. They are organised into five geographical regions: Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America/Caribbean, North America, each with its own board of elected airport leaders. Final reports from 1200 member airports indicated that in 2007, they welcomed some 4.8 billion passengers and handled 88.5 million tonnes of freight and 76.4 million aircraft movements.

ACI EUROPE, based in Brussels, Belgium, represents the interests of some 400 airports in 46 countries. Their members account for over 90% of commercial air traffic in Europe. In 2007, ACI EUROPE member airports welcomed 1.47 billion passengers and handled 17.4 million metric tonnes of cargo and 20.8 million aircraft movements.

ACI EUROPE promotes the exchange of industry know-how through their internal committee structure and extensive schedule of conferences and exhibitions. By actively seeking the views of airport members, they generate comprehensive common policies that serve as a reference to the entire aviation industry.

ACI EUROPE work on a day-to-day basis with the institutions of the European Union, the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) and the European Agency for the Safety of Air Navigation (EUROCONTROL). Colleagues in ACI World Headquarters pursue the same mission with the International Civil Aviation Organisation of the United Nations (ICAO) and other world organisations.


ACI EUROPE aims to represent the views of its member airports and to seek co-operation with airlines and other industry partners vigorously to promote a wider and deeper public understanding of the proven social and economic benefits of civil aviation and the conditions which are needed to make these benefits deliverable.

As legislation and regulation affecting civil aviation is increasingly enacted at the European level, ACI EUROPE aims to convince European and national level legislators and regulators to create the conditions in which airports, in common with other industry partners, may prosper in an environmentally sustainable manner and thereby deliver significant social and economic benefits to the communities which they serve.

ACI EUROPE aims to expand the body of knowledge in airport management and to encourage the exchange of know-how between European airports.


ACI EUROPE advances the collective interests of Europe's airports and promotes professional excellence in airport management and operations.
