ACI World Report – May 2013

Message from Angela Gittens Dear Colleagues, Unlike most of our aviation trade association colleagues, ACI is a federation of strategically aligned regions, each with a governing board, members of which comprise the World Governing Board. The ACI regions have the primary responsibility for providing or arranging for services to its Member airports and business partners. In the interest of achieving greater efficiency, effectiveness or synergies, individual, several or all regions may choose to request that selected Member services be provided by or through the ACI World office or another regional office. The ACI World office has the primary responsibility for representing Member interests at a global level, coordinating the positions and advocacy activities of regions and providing strategic and tactical data and information as necessary to achieve desired results. In the interest of achieving greater efficiency, effectiveness or synergies, the World office may choose to request one or more regions to provide appropriate representation. This structure reflects the phenomenon that no two airports are alike (there is a saying at which airport veterans nod in agreement: “When you’ve seen one airport, you’ve seen one airport”), each being a creature of its specific geography, climate, surrounding terrain, physical characteristics, and local/national/regional history and culture.

As an organisation, ACI enables airports to act as a community, assisting one another within regions and throughout the world. My colleague regional directors make this happen, maintaining effective communication and coordination with the World office and among themselves to avoid costly duplication and eliminate gaps in services to Members. We learned last month that we are losing one of our colleagues as Greg Principato, President of ACI-North America, announced that he will leave the organisation on 30 June 2013. Greg embodied the spirit of airports as members of local, regional and world communities and demonstrated that among his colleagues, bringing cohesion Angela Gittens Director General through the staff levels as ACI World well as through the World and Regional standing committees, where the cutting edge work of ACI gets done. Greg was appointed in July 2005 and has certainly been the dean of the executive leadership at ACI. Greg has not advised us as to his plans but we hope that he will remain in our professional and personal lives. My colleagues and I will truly miss him and his wonderful wife, Ann.

African Regional Runway Safety Seminar by: Ali Tounsi, General Secretary, ACI Africa

On Wednesday, April 10 in the presence of the Director General of the Office National Des Aéroports (ONDA) and the Wali of Souss-Massa-Drâa, experts and leaders from the African airport sector met in the capital of Souss to discuss runway safety. During his inaugural speech, Dalil Guendouz, Director General, ONDA focussed on the progress, achievements and acquired experience to date in runway safety, while urging African partners to pool their efforts to address the growth challenges facing African airports. In addition, ONDA, ACI Africa and the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) organized a regional conference on runway safety in Agadir from 8 to 12 April 2013. The conference, attended by aviation safety professionals and experts, was an opportunity to highlight the commitment of international civil aviation to increase awareness among regulators, airlines, providers of air navigation services and airports to runway safety risks and best approaches to

risk mitigation. Hosting this event in Morocco, home to the regional headquarters of ACI Africa, provided an opportunity to establish and strengthen collaboration among African stakeholders in the aviation sector. ACI-Africa represents African airport operators that are members of ACI World, to governmental and non-governmental regional organizations and is supported by specialized committees and task forces. About ONDA ONDA ensures the safety of air traffic at airports and airspace under national jurisdiction, including the management, operation, maintenance and development of civilian airports in the state. ONDA continues the pursuit of its investment program in infrastructure and structures, while refocusing its development strategy on the quality of services offered to passengers and airlines. ONDA is primarily a service company. These new priorities are clearly articulated in the ONDA 2011-2016 Strategic Plan.

ACI World Report – May 2013

ACI Members are Committed to Deliver Excellence in Passenger Services by: Arturo García-Alonso, Assistant Director, Facilitation and Airport Information Technology, ACI World

Managing airport terminal processes is a complex and fascinating experience. Achieving a safe, secure and efficient flow of passengers, baggage, cargo and mail through the airport facilities to and from the aircraft is paramount. On top of that, airport operators must ensure that services meet and exceed the needs and expectations of passengers, as an essential tool to achieve service excellence. This should be applicable to all scenarios, during good days and bad days, under normal and irregular operations.

The Committee had a very productive discussion in Hamburg, focusing on examples of passenger service best practices, engagement with local communities and regulators, and promotion of content development from airports all around the world.

ACI member airports are continuously working to improve the passengers’ travel experience. The need to share, promote and communicate the efforts of airport operators to better serve passengers was the main topic of discussion during the 31st meeting of the ACI World Facilitation and Services Standing Committee (WFSSC). The meeting took place in Hamburg, Germany, from 4 to 5 April 2013 and was hosted by Hamburg Airport.

• • •

The WFSSC is one of the six ACI Standing Committees, reporting directly to the ACI Executive Committee and World Governing Board, through ACI’s Director General. Recently, ACI added a 4th Pillar to its Key Organisational Objectives, which is to focus on Passenger Advocacy, and the WFSSC is playing an active role in defining a set of passenger centric principles and activities.

In addition, the following topics were discussed: • •

Revision of ACI World Facilitation Strategy Passenger Security Screening Service Quality Task Force Airport Service Level Framework Guidelines Airport Service Quality Developments Automated Border Control Strategies and Issues, including a presentation from FRONTEX

During the meeting, the final version of the Recommended Practice on Manual Measurement of Waiting Times was reviewed, together with the comments received after the consultation period, with minor amendments proposed. Following this revision, the final version was officially approved by the ACI World Executive Committee as ACI Recommended Practice 300A12. Please click here to access the document.

The Hospitality of the Irish: ACI’s First Course in Dublin by Kevin Caron, Assistant Director, Global Training

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of opening the first ACI Global Training course (ACI/ICAO Airport User Charges) hosted by Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) in their new and suburb Career Centre. The ACI/ICAO Airport User Charges course was attended by 17 participants from 9 countries, many of whom will use this course an elective to complete their ACI and ICAO Airport Management Professional Accreditation Programme (AMPAP). In the classroom, many lively discussions were held between the course’s knowledgeable and engaging faculty members consisting of Julian De La Camara and Jerome Simon and its participants. Julian, recently retired from ICAO and Jerome, currently at ICAO, shared a wealth of knowledge they gained over the years. Topics covered ranged from calculating rates that achieve the best balance of revenue generation for airports to negotiating charges and rates with airlines. At the end of the first day, the dedicated team of professionals at DAA hosted a reception where

participants were warmly welcomed by DAA’s Chief Executive Officer Kevin Toland and DAA’s Director of Human Resources Damian Lenagh. During their opening addresses, Kevin and Damian emphasized the importance of investing in ongoing human resource training and development, along with making HR a strategic function. As they wisely stated, it is people after all that run the world’s airports. From the time of our arrival to our departure, course participants, faculty and I were provide with a very warm welcome and made to feel at home. Our welcome included a much appreciated cultural tour of Dublin. On a final note I want to say a BIG thank you to my DAA partner Kevin O’Driscoll, Director of the DAA Career Development Centre, along with his team, Eoin, Aisling, Nuala, Michael, Graham, Michelle and Kiera. You are all exemplary ambassadors for the DAA and the airport/aviation business!

Preliminary 2012 World Airport Traffic and Rankings

Passenger Traffic up 4%; Cargo and Movements Flat

ACI preliminary traffic results, based on reports from over 1093 airports worldwide, indicate that global passenger traffic grew at a rate of 4 percent while cargo and aircraft movements were flat as compared to 2011. The Global passenger traffic has remained resilient in the face of global uncertainties and downside risks that plagued the global economy throughout 2012. While airports in the developed economies of Europe and North America experienced only modest gains in passenger traffic, with year-over-year growth of +1.7 and +1.2 percent respectively, air transport markets in emerging economies continue to show buoyant activity. As many as five airports in emerging markets with over 40 million passengers reported double-digit growth rates. These airports include Istanbul (IST; +20.6), Dubai (DXB; +13.2), Jakarta (CGK; +12.1), Bangkok (BKK; +10.6) and Singapore (SIN; +10.0). The volume of air cargo in 2012 remained more or less at 2010 and 2011 levels. Most regions remained relatively weak in relation to their year-over-year growth rates. Half of the airports in the top 30 busiest cargo airports experienced declines in 2012. With an overall contraction of -2.6 percent in cargo traffic across European airports, the only bright spot was Middle Eastern airports with year-over-year growth in the realm of +5 percent for the region as a whole in 2012.

ACI World’s Director of Economics Rafael Echevarne commented, “Although we saw slightly lower yearover-year growth rates in passenger traffic in 2012, from month to month as compared to 2011, the overall result for the year was in line with ACI forecasts, which factored in the slowdown in certain European and North American markets. Air cargo had mixed results throughout 2012 with some months showing modest gains while other months posting declines. Amid the significant downside risks in the Euro area and the fiscal deadlock in the United States that remained omnipresent throughout the year, growth in the air cargo market came to an overall halt in 2012. As the global economy and international trade gradually picks up steam, we are optimistic to see stronger demand for air transport in the latter half of 2013.” Airport Rankings Atlanta (+3.3%) continues to be the world’s busiest airport, while Beijing (+4.1%) maintains second place. London Heathrow (+0.9%) remains in third while Tokyo Haneda (+6.7%) moves into fourth position. Chicago O’Hare (-0.1%) takes fifth place. Only three other airports in the top 30 experienced declines in passenger traffic in 2012, which include Madrid (-9.0%), Houston (-0.4%) and Phoenix (-0.3%). SUMMARY: PRELIMINARY RESULTS FOR 2012 (compared with 2011 figures) • • • • •

Total Passengers: +4.0% Total International Passengers: +5.6% Total Cargo (includes mail): 0.0% Total International Freight: -0.1% Total Aircraft Movements: -0.2%

ACI World Report – May 2013


Global Passenger Traffic Continues to Post Modest Gains at 1.8% Year-Over-Year in February Most of the aggregate level growth in passenger traffic for the month of February came from Asian airports. Both Hong Kong (HKG) and Beijing (PEK) reported robust growth rates of +15 and +7.3% respectively. However HKG and PEK, in addition to many other Asian airports, witnessed a significant air freight decline in February 2013 compared with February 2012. The seasonal factor of Chinese New Year taking place in February 2013, as compared with January 2012, is responsible for distorted February year-overyear freight results. During Chinese New Year, many businesses across Asia close. This factor, coupled with a high concentration of international air freight among Asia-Pacific airports has resulted in a 6.3% year-over-year decrease in total air freight and an 11.8% decrease in Asia-Pacific air freight. Of all regions, only the Middle East posted gains in both passenger and freight traffic. Total passenger and air freight traffic grew by +9% year-over-year in Middle

Eastern airports. Dubai (DXB), the region’s key hub, experienced double-digit growth in passenger and freight traffic at +11.4 and +15.9% respectively. ACI World’s Economics Director Rafael Echevarne commented, “With the significant slowdown in domestic passenger traffic across European and North American markets, the source of much of the growth hinges on the international traveller. For the most part, international travel remains unaffected, particularly with respect to international traffic across the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. The continued growth trend through 2012 and into 2013 is evidence of this phenomenon in the face of on-going economic uncertainties. Year-over-year growth in these regions was over +10% in February. Overall, February is a difficult month to gage given that seasonality factors make their way into the data. Both The Chinese New Year and the 2012 Leap Year effect had negative repercussions on freight volumes.”

Airports Council International to Help Reduce Missed Passenger Connections and Delays

On April 22, 2013, Airports Council International (ACI) announced the launch of Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) in Africa, Asia-Pacific (including the Middle-East), Latin America-Caribbean and North-America. A-CDM minimizes delays and maximizes airport capacity by enabling key partners in the air transportation system to share vital aviation data necessary for improved aircraft turn-around times and pre-departure sequencing processes. According to Angela Gittens, Director General of Airports Council International, “Information sharing underlies the smooth operation of any ecosystem and the air transportation system is no different. A-CDM will enable a more undisrupted passenger journey as aviation partners will have access to real-time data about flight arrivals and departures, and baggage routing. It will help avoid delays, prevent missed connections and reduce costs for travellers and service providers alike. Airport operators, aircraft operators, ground handlers, air traffic control and air traffic management will share key information for the benefit of the system as a whole. As more airports implement A-CDM, we will see an aviation system more akin to a finely tuned orchestra than an ensemble of talented solo players. Airports in Europe have already achieved impressive benefits in passenger service, operational efficiency and cost reductions. ACI will work with airports in other parts of the world to follow similar flight paths.” Patti Chau, Regional Director of ACI Asia-Pacific said “The Asia-Pacific region will see a tripling of its traffic between 2013 and 2025. Our airports deserve innovative solutions to meet the challenges in front of us and manage such an increase in traffic. A-CDM will help our members fully utilize the existing airport infrastructure while delivering operational benefits, reducing costs, improving efficiency and preserving the environment. I strongly urge our airports to start implementing this great initiative while traffic is still manageable.” The launch of A-CDM follows the 25 June 2012 signing of a memorandum of cooperation between ACI and CANSO (Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation) on the promotion and implementation of A-CDM and follows the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) resolution on A-CDM stemming from its November 2012, 12th Air Navigation Conference (ANC) in Montréal, Québec, Canada. The 8th ACI Asia-Pacific Regional Assembly, Conference and Exhibition that runs from 22 to 25 April 2013 in Phuket, Thailand will feature a session on “Airport Operations – Planning for the Future” where A-CDM will be introduced as

a strategic solution to enhance airport operational efficiency and address capacity constraints in Asia-Pacific, the fastest growing market in aviation. What is A-CDM? Airport CDM is about partners, airport operators, aircraft operators, ground handlers, ATC and the ATM Network, sharing data and working together more efficiently and transparently. •

A-CDM improves operational efficiency at airports by reducing delays, improving flight events predictability, maximizing airport throughput usage and optimising the utilisation of airport resources.

By improving target take off times, A-CDM can help the air traffic management network improve its en-route and sector planning operations. Naturally, these benefits will increase as more and more airports implement A-CDM. Through the same link and in return, airports can receive information about expected landing time that enables additional operational benefits for arrival flights.

Benefits of A-CDM for Airports Partners • Overall, the airport throughput usage will be maximised especially at peak/congested hours. •

The airport operator benefits from improved use of stands/ gates and increased airport throughput. In addition, more stable traffic flows and reduced taxi times will lead to fewer queues at the runway and less congestion on the apron and taxiways. Air navigation service providers both at airports and en-route, benefit from improved runway and capacity planning.

Ground handlers benefit from more accurate arrival times, which allows for more accurate planning with more efficient use of resources.

Aircraft operators benefit from improved awareness about the status and location of the aircraft. Together with sequence information and better arrival times, the result is more accurate fleet predictions, reduced fuel burn due to less aircraft queuing on taxiways and economic and environmental benefits.

Passengers benefit from reduction in delays, and fewer missed connections. After disruptions, recovery is much faster. For arrivals more accurate information is delivered to flight information display systems and service desks.
