Message from Angela Gittens Director General, ACI World Working together to optimize airport capacity utilization into consideration the application of local rules to respond to the specificities of each airport. We can all appreciate that airport infrastructure is a limited resource yet airport operators have historically had little or no influence on the decision-making with respect to slot allocations.
Dear Colleagues, The growth of air transport has led to increased congestion both at airports and in the airspace. As reported in the latest ACI World Airport Traffic Forecast 2016–2040, traffic growth will exacerbate the current level of congestion at several airports. This is especially the case for emerging markets, such as those in Latin America and Asia-Pacific, where an increasing number of airports will experience capacity challenges similar to their competitors in Europe and North America. Worldwide, around 300 airports are directly affected by airport coordination, meaning that a slot allocation process needs to be imposed or voluntarily applied. It is in the best interest of airport operators and the communities they serve to promote efficiency in the allocation and use of the capacity that they build, maintain and operate, taking 4
In 2015, ACI started a new initiative to represent at the World level the interest of airports in this regard by urging States to facilitate more effective engagement by all stakeholders, including airport operators, to improve industry guidance on slot allocation that takes national interests and drivers of economic benefit into account, such as accommodating new entrants to drive trade and tourism. The first stepping stone of our new initiative was laid when the ACI World Governing Board established an Expert Group on Slots (EGS) to gather knowledge and pursue cooperation with slot coordinators and their association— the Worldwide Airport Coordinators Group. The EGS is composed of experts nominated by ACI Regions and meets twice a year, coinciding with the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) bi-annual Slot Conference. The EGS’ first meeting in June 2015 led to the development of a Policy Paper and Resolution that were passed at the 25th meeting of the ACI World General
Assembly on 1 September 2015 in Panama City, Panama. The Resolution resolved to: urge stakeholders to accept ACI and its member airport operators’ involvement in slot allocation policy and guidelines; recognise airport operators as significant players in local rules for slot allocation to suit the needs of the individual airport and its users; seek amendment of the definition of a slot; and promote transparency and efficiency in slot allocation processes and practices worldwide, as well as consider new allocation methods. The efforts of the EGS were brought to the 39th Session of the ICAO Triennial Assembly this past September/October. The Assembly elected the Council of 36 States, approved ICAO’s budget for 2017–2019 and set the international regulatory framework for civil aviation by approving a series of resolutions. One of these was a joint paper made by ACI and IATA to conduct a strategic review of the Worldwide Slot Guidelines. As well, ACI put forth a
Working Paper (231) with an additional recommendation for a panel to evaluate the potential benefits of alternative capacity allocation methods for airport slots. The Assembly also agreed that the process must ensure transparency, certainty, consistency, fairness and non-discrimination, as well as remain globally harmonized. The next EGS meeting will take place in February 2017 in San Francisco, USA. ACI looks forward to working collaboratively with IATA, other industry stakeholders and States to develop a more effective slot allocation process which will contribute to achieving a more sustainable industry.

QUOTES FROM ACI’s REGIONAL HEADS
ACI Sound Bites “I congratulate President-Elect Trump on his election to be our next president. I appreciate his recognition that improving infrastructure should be a top priority for the United States. A modernized infrastructure promotes economic growth and secures our position as leaders in the global marketplace. It is imperative that we address the more than $75 billion in airport infrastructure needs to meet the growing demands of passengers and keep our industry from falling behind. US airports alone contribute more than $1.1 trillion to the global economy and support nearly 10 million jobs. Airports stand ready to work with the new administration and the new Congress to modernize our nation’s airport infrastructure, provide effective security and enhance the overall travel experience.” ~ Kevin Burke, President and CEO, ACI North America
“As part of the 25th ACI Africa General Assembly, ACI Africa recognized members with the presentation of the first ever Safety Awards. Paying tribute to excellence and professionalism in the management of aerodrome safety, ACI Africa celebrated the successes of its members, and we look forward to continuing the Safety Awards in the coming years.” ~ Ali Tounsi, Secretary General, ACI Africa
“2016 marked the 25th Anniversary of the only global organization that represents the collective interests of the world’s airports and that promotes professional excellence in airport management and operations. ACI contributes to a safe, secure, sustainable and economically viable air transport system. Over the last 25 years, the airport industry in Latin America and the Caribbean have seen widespread transformations marked by the processes of airport concessions. The participation of private capital, particularly in recent years, has enabled States to modernize and expand their infrastructure capacity to sustain the growth of passenger and cargo traffic.” ~ Javier Martinez, Director General, ACI Latin America-Caribbean
“Whether we like it or not, governments in Europe are neither interested nor able to invest in large airport infrastructure these days. They expect us to do the job ourselves, or leverage private investment to do so. This means that Europe’s airports have become businesses in their own right. Nearly half of the airports in the EU now have private shareholders, up from just 23% back in 2010. This business transformation has allowed large- and medium-sized airports to keep investing in modernizing and developing their facilities, thereby boosting airport capacity, quality and connectivity—all this without weighting on national budgets, and ultimately taxpayers.” ~ Augustin de Romanet, President of ACI EUROPE and President & CEO of Groupe ADP
“The complexity of aviation security has been intensely debated and analyzed since the terrorist attacks at Brussels and Istanbul-Atatürk airports. To further advance the debate—its function, its challenges and boundaries, its regulatory and wider social implications—the Security & Crisis Management Special Summit held in Brussels last month, presented by ACI EUROPE and our region, provided the perfect platform for this occasion. As well, we spared no effort on improving our members’ aviation security through the APEX in Security programme with the completion of pilot reviews at Denpasar and Balikpapan airports in Indonesia in November.” ~ Patti Chau, Regional Director, ACI Asia-Pacific 6

MUMBAI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Mumbai International Airport: At the height of growth By Rajeev Jain, Chief Executive Officer, Mumbai International Airport Mumbai is the financial and commercial capital of India, contributing more than 6% to India’s GDP. With the growing business and tourism opportunities in the region, Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA), located in Mumbai, is the gateway to India. It is the second-busiest airport in South Asia and handles an impressive 18.6% of all air traffic in India. Despite being the most operationally challenged city airport in the world, efforts have been made to enhance the passenger experience at CSIA by providing stateof-the art facilities. In fact, CSIA was ranked the number one airport globally in the 25–40 million passengers per year category by ACI’s Airport Service Quality (ASQ) programme this year—proof positive that passenger satisfaction is high at CSIA. Mumbai International Airport Pvt Ltd (MIAL), the operator of CSIA, has always focused on its vision “to be one of the
world’s best airports,” and to be “the pride of Mumbai” by consistently delighting its customers. Key statistics In FY 2015–16, CSIA welcomed 41.67 million passengers, representing growth of 13.7% compared to the previous year. Mumbai’s strategic location makes CSIA an ideal airport to connect passengers from East to West or from North to South, including a huge catchment area covering Western, Central and Southern India. CSIA has 29 catchment airports within a 45- to 150-minute flying time. With some 190 flights daily, CSIA facilitated the transfer of 9.12 million passengers in FY 2015–16, representing growth of 10% compared to the previous year. CSIA currently has an extensive network which takes passengers to over 88 domestic

Leveraging strong airline partnerships New airlines that have confirmed their plans to commence operations from Mumbai in the weeks and months to come include RwandAir, connecting Mumbai to Kigali and Guangzhou effective December, 2016 (subject to timely government approvals), and Brussels Airlines, connecting Mumbai to Brussels effective March, 2017. Mega Maldives also plans to launch non-stop service between Mumbai and Malé in the coming months. Air Canada has likewise confirmed its plans to operate nonstop operations between Mumbai and Toronto. Moreover, Air China has reinstated flights between Mumbai and Beijing effective this winter. To encourage new routes, CSIA has waived landing charges for the period of one year for airlines commencing new direct routes. In addition to these exciting new developments, CSIA has always been a tourist-friendly airport. In fact, the airport won the National Tourism Award 2014–15 in its category, acknowledging CSIA’s contribution towards the promotion of tourism in the state of Maharashtra and throughout India at large.

The impressive space is spread out over a 3-kilometer long stretch across all four levels of the terminal. A commitment to environmental sustainability Sustainability has been the cornerstone of all projects undertaken at CSIA, and the airport is quick to note that the various green initiatives it has implemented have helped in strengthening its core business functions. Being an environmentally sensitive organization, a series of measures have helped in bringing down the airport’s carbon emissions. Although CSIA is a brown field airport located in the heart of the city, MIAL enrolled voluntarily in ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation programme and is currently accredited at Level 3 Optimization. In sync with the Government of India’s ambitious target of having 100 GW of solar power generation capacity by 2022, CSIA successfully implemented solar panels spread across five different locations at the T2 and Cargo terminals. The panels, which generate 1060 kWp, representing 1% of the airport’s total energy requirements for a
year, have been strategically positioned on the rooftops of the buildings for optimum utilization of space at the airport. CSIA’s implementation of new technology is also focused on offering a superlative passenger experience. In line with the airport’s vision of becoming a smart airport, MIAL was the first airport operator in the country to introduce Common Use Self Service baggage tag service. In addition to this, the operator has introduced India’s first ever indoor navigation app featuring augmented reality in T2. The focus at CSIA continues to be maintaining and improving operational efficiency, while at the same time providing an unparalleled passenger experience. The iconic design features of the brand new T2—both beautiful and functional—are exemplary of this commitment. Indeed, traveling through CSIA evokes the distinct spirit of India: forward-thinking while still paying homage to its past and, perhaps most importantly, ready to embrace growth and progress. --------------For more information on Mumbai International Airport, visit www.csia.in. ACI WORLD REPORT
ICAO’s Aerodrome Design and Operations Panel approves important amendment to Annex 14 By David Gamper, Won-Soon Park and Prisca Nkolo, Safety and Technical Department, ACI World The second full meeting of the ICAO Aerodrome Design and Operations Panel (ADOP)—formerly the Aerodromes Panel— was held in Montreal from 7 to 11 November. It was attended by 46 participants from sixteen countries and six international organizations including ACI, with new members from Singapore, Switzerland, South Africa and the US. Proposed amendments to Annex 14 and guidance material were discussed. The panel received progress reports on the assigned tasks since the last panel meeting in February 2015. A very significant proposed amendment to Annex 14 was discussed which concerns
the revision of the parameters governing aerodrome reference codes and the resulting design specifications. Using a performance based approach that includes safety data and scientific studies, the proposal would make wingspan the unique parameter for the aerodrome reference code letter. Outer main gear wheel span (OMGWS) would be considered separately when relevant such as for runway width. A study of aircraft design has indicated that the maximum OMGWS that needs to be allowed for is 15 m. As a result, the recommended runway width applying to 9–15 m OMGWS would become a minimum of 45 m, whereas ICAO currently recommends a minimum 60 m width for
ACI congratulates the retiring Rapporteurs of the Airport Pavement Expert Group, Mr. Serge Le Cunff (France), and of the Aerodrome Design Working Group, Mr. George Legarreta (USA). -----------------Code F (14–16 m OMGWS or 65–80 m wingspan). Some other significant changes in minimum dimensions are: Runway shoulder width: 7.5 m of paved shoulder for Codes D, E and F; for Code F airplanes with four engines, a further 7.5 m unpaved shoulder should be prepared to resist jet blast and FOD ingestion
earlier in Europe. It should bring benefits to all parts of the industry as it will improve airport capacity and efficiency. Firstly, the proposed amendment would give the possibility to ease certification of aerodromes which are non-compliant by a few meters and avoid very costly runway or taxiway relocation, with savings in the billions of dollars per aerodrome.
Beneficial to the industry
Secondly, aerodrome operators would be able to accept large aircraft operations within existing infrastructure or with fewer major modifications, thus reducing the cost of new capacity. In terms of runways, a 60 m wide runway costs approximately 20% more to build than a 45 m wide runway with 15 m paved shoulders. For taxiways, large aerodromes can have as much as 50 km or more of taxiways, and the reduced pavement width will produce proportionate savings. Annual maintenance costs—which as a rule of thumb are around 1% of construction costs—are also expected to be reduced proportionately to reductions in the area of paved surfaces.
The package would enter into effect at the end of 2018, but may be introduced
Thirdly, airlines unable to operate larger airplanes at some airports due to regulatory
Runway strip width: 140 m instead of 150 m half width for Codes 3 and 4 instrument runways (the most common case for ACI members) Runway-taxiway separation: 180 m instead of 190 m for Codes 3 and 4 instrument runways for Code F, with the same reduction of 10 m in the separations for Codes C, D and E. Taxiway width: 23 m instead of 25 m for aircraft from 9 to 15 m OMGWS.
ACI WORLD REPORT
restrictions would have greater opportunities to deploy their fleet and therefore open new routes. Fourthly, aerodrome operators would be able to reduce operational restrictions such as designated taxi routes for large aircraft, which can save taxi time and increase capacity. Task forces and working groups In related news, the OLS task force is developing a new concept for Obstacle Limitation Surfaces using aircraft approach speed categories instead of the aeroplane reference field length. This concept shows promise and should both ensure consistency with aircraft capabilities and improve airport efficiency. It will be matured and then socialized. The Friction Task Force (FTF) proposed amendments to ICAO guidance on assessment and reporting of runway surface conditions to facilitate the introduction of a globally-harmonized reporting format in 2020. It will be familiarized to stakeholders through training programmes and workshops provided by ICAO in cooperation with ACI. Various working groups were assigned the task of updating or developing guidance material. One significant achievement is the revision of the Aerodrome Design Manual Part 3 - Pavements, which is completed and ready for publication. The AirportCollaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) Working Group has now completed a draft manual to be published by the end of this year. Guidance material has also been produced on Autonomous Runway Incursion Warning Systems (ARIWS) for the Aerodrome Design Manual Part 4 - Visual Aids , to complement the new provisions introduced this year in the new edition of Annex 14. On ground handling, a task force is working on a draft ICAO manual. They presented the structure of the document, which was accepted by the panel. The Visual Aids Working Group (VAWG) 14
has been working on four tasks: visual aids for day/night and all weather operations; surface management, including prevention of runway incursions; use of LED technology in visual aids; and RVR inconsistency. The Heliport design working group (HDWG) also proposed an amendment to Annex 14, Vol II, mostly related to physical characteristics. Impact assessment and guidance material to support those changes are expected in 2017. The RFF working group is working closely with the Flight Operations Panel on a proposal for rescue and fire-fighting provisions for general aviation and all cargo aerodromes in Annex 14, Vol I, with completion expected during the fourth quarter of 2017. The PANS-Aerodromes Part 1 is now applicable, and Part 2 should be released in 2018. Due to the importance of operational issues, it was decided that the PANSAerodromes study group (PASG) would become a working group under the panel and be responsible for developing all operations-related material for aerodromes, not just the PANS. The progress of other ongoing work was reviewed, including taxiway naming conventions, airport master planning and aircraft arresting systems.The consistent work done by all the working groups, with ACI support, will significantly contribute to improving safety and efficiency at airports. *Note: this report is an interpretation of the proceedings of the ADOP and does not indicate that any of these proposals have been approved by ICAO. ----------For more information on ACIâ€™s work in airport safety, visit http://www.aci.aero/ safety.

ACI participates in the update of the Aerodrome Design Manual Part 3: Pavements By Prisca Nkolo, Assistant Manager, Airport Safety, ACI World ACI World has contributed to the update of the second edition of International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) DOC 9157 Part 3 - Pavements, originally released in 1983. The document, known more generally as the Aerodrome Design Manual (ADM) Part 3, was in urgent need of revision to include new developments in the pavement industry that have transpired since its first publication. ICAO recognized the importance of updating such guidance and assigned the task to the ICAO Airport Pavement Expert Group (APEG),
previously known as the Pavement Subgroup (PSG). Since 2014, the group has been working hard to develop a comprehensive and up-to-date document. They finally achieved this task during their last meeting in September 2016 in Washington D.C. We particularly acknowledge the work of Jo Lary (Pavement Consultants Inc), World Business Partner representative on the World Safety and Technical Standing Committee, who represented ACI on the

PSG and contributed actively to the work on behalf of ACI. Major revisions One significant change in the updated version of the ADM Part 3 is the replacement of the current ACN calculation Fortran code by a link to the new software, called ICAO-ACN 1.0, which facilitates the calculation. The link can be found at http://www.icao.int/ safety/airnavigation/Pages/aga.aspx. The updated document will also include a new chapter on structural criteria for unpaved surfaces. This section only deals with unpaved shoulders, RESAs and graded strips, while unpaved runways are not addressed. Such areas of an aerodrome may not be paved but are still expected to support the occasional passage of an aircraft. The material provided is to be used as general guidance on how to design them. Best practices for States have been revised in the manual, and France, Russia, the UK and the US provided their current practices for regulating overload operations. Pavement design and evaluation techniques from France, the UK, and the US have also been updated and direct links to related documentation have been inserted.
pavements now based on linear elastic and finite element analyses. New ACN numbers, computed with the new calculation method, may require reassessments of airport PCNs. Because there is no prescribed guidance from ICAO on PCN calculation, the APEG is currently working on a basic procedure based on linear elastic analysis. The PCN procedure will also describe the steps to make the traffic mix equivalent to an aircraft using the Cumulative Damage Factor (CDF) concept. The new ACN-PCN method would be applicable in 2020, with a suitable transition period. The APEG will organize workshops and training for the airport community for this significant change in the way pavement strength is evaluated and reported. ----------For more information on ACIâ€™s work in airport safety, visit http://www.aci.aero/ safety.
Future developments The current ACN calculation procedure is based on obsolete pavement design methods, namely the CBR method for flexible pavements and PCA method for rigid pavements. Thus, the APEG is developing a new ACN-PCN methodology to better address aircraft traffic trends using the latest design methods for ACI WORLD REPORT
A busy week in the aviation security calendar By Nina Brooks, Head, Security, ACI World The 25th annual AVSEC World conference took place from 25–27 October 2016 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, bringing together key industry and regulatory stakeholders to discuss challenges and work together to find solutions. Prior to the start of the conference, the ACI World Security Standing Committee met alongside the ACI Regional Asia-Pacific Security Committee, discussing strategy for key issues such as landside security, and actively developing policies for ACI’s Policy Handbook. The AVSEC World conference kicked off with a welcome addresses from the principals from the International Civil Aviation Association (ICAO), the International Air Transport
Association (IATA) and ACI. Issues such as security culture, intelligence and information sharing, and the need for a new global security plan were highlighted. Angela Gittens, Director General of ACI World, identified the need for greater collaboration, improved training and the implementation of a security culture throughout the airport environment. Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s Director General and CEO, called aviation security “a topic of critical importance—not just to our industry, but to the world.” Dr. Fang Liu, Secretary General of ICAO, pointed out that the UN Security Council Resolution 2309 highlights nations’ responsibility to safeguard aviation against terrorist attacks and to ensure that international standards keep pace with rapidly evolving threats.
The ACI World Security Standing Committee, with observers from the ACI Asia Pacific Regional Aviation Security Committee 18
Moving into the keynote speeches, Henrick Hololei, Director General of DG MOVE, noted that no country and no region should be left behind, in line with ICAO’s motto. YB Dato’ Sri Tiong Lai, Malaysia’s Minister of Transport, highlighted the need for collaboration, saying that “as air passenger traffic rises, so must our vigilance. Safety and security are all the more important with the rise in terrorism and cyber threats. It is our responsibility and duty in the aviation security community to work together to implement the necessary standards of security and ensure they are upheld.” Day two started with an in-depth look at landside security, including different perspectives on how it can be managed and possible solutions. Alexis Long from Heathrow Airport advocated a practical approach, saying that “we don’t work for freedom to live like prisoners.” A panel on integrated risk management followed, with Mike Woodall from IATA
identifying the need to support others in the security community. “We need to give them the tools and confidence to start creating timely, evidence-based risk assessments that can be reviewed, managed and implemented,” he said. Moving into the dual tracks of day two, the whole spectrum of security was discussed, including considerations for physical security, technology, building and process design, intelligence and risk management. Panel participants and presenters from airports included security experts from Aeroports de Paris, Adelaide Airport, Changi Airport and Copenhagen. The Capacity Building Panel looked at the need to improve security in developing countries and some of the programmes that are available for providing assistance. Jennifer Sullivan from Toronto Pearson International Airport identified the need to “think big, act small,” highlighting that everyone has a role to play.

Best practice for screening of insulin pumps By Nina Brooks, Head, Security, ACI World As today’s security screening professionals work tirelessly to keep the travelling public safe, there is, on occasion, some confusion and variation of practices globally around the screening of insulin pumps at airport security checkpoints. In this article, we look at the issue, and suggest how airports can help. Brief introduction to the insulin pump An insulin pump is a small battery-operated device that delivers precise doses of rapidacting insulin 24 hours a day to closely match a body’s needs. The insulin pump has a compartment that holds a reservoir that is filled with insulin which is then infused into the body through tubing and a cannula inserted under the skin. The insulin pump must be constantly attached as disconnection causes blood sugars to rise and hyperglycaemia or ketoacidosis can rapidly develop, which can quickly become a life-threatening emergency. Insulin pumps and airport security Hospitals and insulin pump manufacturers advise that the electromagnetic radiation used by x-ray screening for carry-on or checked luggage and full-body airport scanners may interfere with the motors of insulin pumps, resulting in a potential impact on insulin delivery. As a result, these sources suggest that passen-
gers with insulin pumps should be subject to alternative security screening (for example, via pat down or explosive trace detection methods). However, diabetes organizations, experts and affected passengers report that airport security officers are often unaware that passengers should not be asked to remove their insulin pump for screening, nor should pumps be subjected to x-ray screening or full-body scanners. This applies both to insulin pumps worn on the body or spares carried in hand baggage. Regulation Some countries have provision in regulation for dealing with medical aids, which allow for alternative screening methods such as a hand search or trace detection. However, procedures are not always well understood or implemented. The Airport Operators Association in the UK has advised passengers to notify security personnel at the screening point of any medical screening requirements and ensure that they carry medical confirmation from their practitioner so that screening may be undertaken accordingly. Next steps ACI World will bring this issue to the next Aviation Security Panel in 2017, requesting that it is highlighted to regulators and included in guidance material. In the meantime, we would ask that airports review their procedures with regard to the screening of medical equipment and ensure that screeners are well informed. -------------For more information on ACI’s work in airport security, visit www.aci.aero/security.

FACILITATION AND IT
ICAO’s Traveller Identification Programme Symposium By Jean-Sébastien Pard, Manager, Facilitation and IT, ACI World The 12th Traveller Identification Programme (TRIP) Symposium on machine readable travel documents (MRTDs) and traveller identification management took place at the ICAO Montréal Headquarters from 15 to 17 November 2016. The symposium specifically addressed the need for States to further enhance the integrity of the passport issuance process and promote robust identification management in order to maximize border security and facilitation benefits. At this event, speakers and facilitation experts, policy makers, practitioners and researchers, many from relevant working groups of ICAO, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and other international organizations, provided useful insights and best practices
towards combating fraudulent activities, verification of identity against breeder documents and how to benefit from the diversity of technical innovations supporting aviation security. The ICAO TRIP strategy is closely linked with five elements of traveller identification and the border control inspection process. These elements, as ICAO states, are: • Evidence of identity – credible evidence of identity, involving the tracing, linkage and verification of identity against breeder documents to ensure the authenticity of identity; • MRTDs – the design and manufacture of standardized MRTDs, including ePassports, that comply with ICAO specifications;
FACILITATION AND IT
• Document issuance and control – processes and protocols for document issuance by appropriate authorities to authorized holders, and controls to prevent theft, tampering and loss; • Inspection systems and tools – inspection systems and tools for the efficient and secure reading and verification of MRTDs, including use of the ICAO Public Key Directory (PKD); and • Interoperable applications – globally interoperable applications and protocols that provide for timely, secure and reliable linkage of MRTDs and their holders to available and relevant data in the course of inspection operations.

FACILITATION AND IT
Airport Beacons Recommended Practice now available Serge Yonke Nguewo, Senior Manager, Facilitation and IT, ACI World ACI World is pleased to announce that the Airport Beacons Recommended Practice (RP) is now available. This comprehensive document, a joint initiative in collaboration with IATA and several other organizations, is accessible at www.aci.aero/airport-it-documentation. Many airports across the globe have deployed beacons and use them today for a variety of reasons, largely because they offer an enhanced or more personalized user experience. Beacons transmit a low-power signal that can be picked up by nearby Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices, including smartphones. Beacons themselves don’t collect data; they broadcast short-range
signals that can be detected by apps on mobile devices in close proximity to the beacon. Beacons positioned near an airport security checkpoint, for example, might trigger an airline app to display a boarding pass. A beacon next to a painting in a museum might signal the museum’s app to show information about the artist. Retail store beacons can help users locate products or indicate on-sale items. Given that beacon technology will continue to evolve, the Airport Beacons RP will be reviewed and updated on a regular basis. A task force composed of permanent members will be established to continuously review the RP document. The next logical step will be to setup the Beacons Registry in order to offer a standardized way to manage information related to airports’ implementation of this exciting new technology. More information on ACI’s activity with regard to the Beacons Registry will appear in a future World Report edition. -----------------------To download the Airport Beacons RP, click here.

Salt Lake City International Airport makes customer service more accessible Salt Lake City (SLC) International Airport welcomed veterans from across the United States in June this year for the 36th National Veterans Wheelchair Games (NVWG).
Veterans participating in the Games educate newly disabled veterans on what is possible, and those witnessing the events realize that limitations are only state of mind.
Co-presented by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Paralyzed Veterans of America, the NVWG is a rehabilitation and wheelchair sports programme empowering Veterans to live more active and healthy lives through wheelchair sports and recreation.
The customer service challenge
Each summer, veterans from across the United States travel to a new community hosting the NVWG and compete in 18 wheelchair sporting events while providing encouragement and mentoring for new veterans.
Gary Bilbrey, C.M, Airport Operations Manager responsible for Terminal and Landside Operations, turned to Airports Council Internationalâ€™s Online Learning Center to provide timely refresher training to his already highly-trained staff.
The customer service challenge for SLC International Airport was to make the arrival and departure of more than 600 wheelchair athletes and their support crews as seamless as possible.
Volunteers ready to welcome National Veterans Wheelchair Games athletes 32
“The SLC Airport spent 10 months bringing together all of our tenants to plan for the NVWG,” Bilbrey said. “The Disability Sensitivity Training module proved to be beneficial for all airport employees and provided customers with the assurance that Salt Lake City has an accessible airport.” Fifty-one staff members were enrolled in the online Disability Sensitivity Training module, which was developed in partnership with Open Doors Organization out of Chicago. Staff members were enrolled in the online course in May, providing timely training prior to the arrival of the veterans in late June. The training reminded staff of critical customer service elements when working with passengers with disabilities and reduced mobility. A host of benefits The online programme allowed all 51 staff to be trained in a very short period of time and in a cost-effective manner. The training could be rolled out quickly and easily just before the games to provide a mechanism to refresh and refocus staff at the right time. A key benefit from the course was the statistics provided by Open Doors Organization on the number of people in the United States with disabilities that travel. The 2015 survey commissioned by Open Doors Organization on the general travel habits and patterns of American adults (18 years and older) with disabilities found the following: • About 70 percent of adults with disabilities (26 million people) travel at least once in a two-year period.
double, or approximately $34.6 billion per annum. The feedback “The disability sensitivity training we underwent was eye-opening in many ways,” said James Udall, Terminal/Landside Operations Supervisor. “It helped me gain a better understanding of how people with disabilities go about their daily lives and how I can ensure their needs at the airport are met. It also helped me to learn how to better interact with persons with disabilities in a respectful manner. “Because of the training, I am better prepared to assist the public and identify any problems before they occur,” Udall added. The ACI Online Learning Centre would like to thank Gary Bilbrey of SLC International Airport for taking the time and effort to develop and share this article. More information SLC International Airport is operated and managed by the Salt Lake City Department of Airports, a department of Salt Lake City Corporation, and currently serves more than 22 million passengers per year.

Interview series: Celebrating the 10th anniversary of ACI’s Airport Service Quality programme By Sevda Fevzi, Manager, ASQ Strategic Marketing, ACI World This year, ACI’s Airport Service Quality (ASQ) programme celebrates its 10th anniversary. As we blow out our birthday candles, we will be featuring interviews from a host of airports that have been part of the ACI ASQ global network within the past decade. Through firsthand interviews published in the ACI World Report, we will be highlighting what ASQ means to each airport, as well as how the programme has contributed to customer service excellence and increased satisfaction amongst travellers.
How and why did your airport join ASQ?
The final interview in our 2016 series features Singapore Changi Airport’s (SIN) Senior Vice President, Passenger Experience and Airport Operations Management, Albert Lim.
How has your airport directly benefitted from ASQ?
At Singapore Changi Airport, passengers are at the heart of what we do. This has been our raison d’être since welcoming our first passengers in 1981. The successful ACI ASQ programme, with its comprehensive framework to gather invaluable passenger insights as well as international benchmarking opportunities with the world’s leading airports, attracted us to participate actively.
Beyond service, we want to create a unique travel experience that is personalized, stress-free and positively
Key facts about Singapore Changi Airport
Albert Lim, Senior Vice President, Passenger Experience and Airport Operations Management, Singapore Changi Airport 44
• Opened in 1981 • Airport code: SIN • Welcomed 55 million passengers in 2015 • Number of employees: 50,000 • Did you know? Singapore Changi has the world’s first butterfly garden in an airport, home to more than 1,000 butterflies and a 6 m tall grotto/ waterfall. Changi Airport also has one of the largest Facebook fan bases among airports, with more than 1.5 million fans.
AIRPORT SERVICE QUALITY
Singapore Changi Airport surprising at Changi Airport. These key elements are our guiding beacons in driving excellence in the airport together with our airport partners. Our participation in the ASQ programme allows us to listen to the voices of our passengers regarding their experiences at Changi Airport and identify areas for improvement so as to ensure that we are constantly in tune with our passengersâ€™ growing expectations. Has your airport implemented any changes and/or improvements because of ASQ? Certainly, yes! Through the monthly ASQ surveys, we have greatly benefitted from evaluation of the individual scores and verbatim feedback provided by our passengers across various key touchpoints. We can then identify areas where we have missed the mark and jointly develop service improvement initiatives together with our airport partners.
What is the best thing about being part of the ASQ airport network? Air travel can be a stressful and tiring experience for most passengers. I am thus heartened to see the passion and commitment of the ASQ airport community constantly striving to improve the service level and enhance the passenger experience for the benefit of our passengers. We have learned much from the cross sharing of best practices and successful case studies through the regular ASQ Forums and publications. What are your wish list destinations for future ASQ Forums?

in modern infrastructure, continuously enhance customer service in order to create the best airport experience possible and work closely with concession partners to maximize business potential. Airports, big or small, have the important role of bringing in travelers by marketing the destination together with their airline partners, tourism operators and local governments to drive economic growth. “At ACI Asia-Pacific, we define small airports as airports with annual passenger throughput of 5 million or less,” Chau continued. “About 85% of airports in this region can be classified as small airports. At ACI, we value each and every airport member no matter their size. All airports serve a key role in the transportation of people and goods.” “Being host of this seminar is a recognition of the fruitful partnership between the Royal Government of Cambodia and Cambodia Airports, resulting in outstanding achievements over the last 20 years,” added Eric Delobel. “Traffic growth has averaged 10% yearly, the airports in
Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville have been entirely extended and revamped and Cambodia has joined the league of a global tourism destination. Publicprivate partnership is a model that has successfully stood the test of time and we believe that it has plenty of room to further deliver.” During the two-day seminar, the following issues were discussed: • Master plan on ASEAN connectivity: “One vision, one identity, one community” • Community assistance • Risk management and business continuity • Airport expansion while maintaining normal operation • Seasonality in tourism • Thinking out of the box: Innovative ways to enhance revenues at small and emerging airports • Airport privatization and financing infrastructural development The seminar was officially closed on 26 October.
