Message from the Director General I want to flag two important events this month: the ACI Airport Economics and Finance Conference in London and the imminent announcement of the top performers in the ACI Airport Service Quality survey for 2009. Although these appear to be two distinct fields, they share a common driver – helping airports to meet customer expectations. The Finance conference will focus on multiple facets of managing airport business as we emerge from a tough financial year. Preliminary 2009 traffic results indicate clear signs of renewed stability and even growth in both domestic and international markets. In turn, this growth is an early warning sign that once again airports must plan for and finance future capacity expansion. At the same time, the customer will judge our performance and our ability to deliver high quality service consistently over time. In an increasingly competitive market, ASQ supports our business planning efforts through benchmarking and best practice guidance in order to help us identify priority areas for improvement. I look forward to seeing many ACI members at the conference where we will get a jump start on planning for our future needs and ensuring that we continue to serve our communities well.

Angela Gittens Director General, ACI World

ACI World at ICAO Advocate, Communicate, Initiate by Georgina Graham, Director ICAO Bureau Happy New Year – a little late you might think, so I should clarify – Happy Chinese New Year – the Year of the Metal Tiger! According to lore, those born in the year of the Tiger are, amongst other things, labelled as calm but also as rebellious, fearsome but also affectionate. Indeed, according to writer Richard Giles, the Metal Tiger “represent[s] the kind of forces necessary to succeed with very difficult tasks. The impossible just might be possible during this challenging year.” The dichotomy that is represented by the description above is also apparent in the task ahead of us at the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) this year. A year when key issues this industry faces will be played out upon the world stage and both our regulators and airports, airlines and other key industry partners will be judged according to their outcome. Think Environment, Security and, of course, Safety. Already in 2010 we have witnessed either incidents or consequences of incidents that have occurred in these fields – the continuing post COP/15 discussions, the escalating response to the 12/25 security incident and of course the tragic loss of life faced after the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 409 disaster. National governments are usually seen to be at the forefront of responses to these types of events, however, before we even reach that stage ICAO, the body tasked with setting standards and recommended practices to ensure the safe, orderly and economically sound operations of the air transport industry, has debated and discussed and cast its expert view upon the issues that our industry has faced or is facing. Testament to these ongoing deliberations are the constantly updated Annexes to the Chicago Convention, the production of Guidance Material and other instruments to provide States with the regulations they require to effectively oversee air transport within their territory. As an example, the ICAO Council, in its forthcoming session will discuss issues as diverse as the ICAO Comprehensive Aviation Security Strategy to the status of compliance of States with the Machine Readable Passport deadline. Why will ICAO’s year ahead, this year of the Metal Tiger, be a challenging one? Expectations are high from the 190 Contracting States, that ICAO will continue to take up the mantle and adhere to its mandate under the Chicago Convention as stated above. Yet it must achieve this mammoth task with a zero nominal growth budget in a challenging economic climate, and balancing the need for efficiency with the safety of the travelling public with more passengers flying than ever before. It is imperative that we play our part in ensuring that ICAO’s goals are met, and our own challenge is to do this whilst ensuring that our members’ needs are well represented amongst those of our industry partners such as airlines and air navigation service providers.

We are now half way through the CAEP (Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection), which, as reported below, has discussed issues such as noise and NOx stringency. In the coming month we will finalise our preparations for the Next Generation of Aviation Professionals Symposium; the Aviation Security Panel meeting as well as the High Level Meeting on Safety. Look out in forthcoming issues for information on the importance of these meetings and how their outcomes may impact you in your daily operations and the day to day running of your airport. So it seems that we will need to assume in 2010 the traits of the Metal Tiger – fiercely defending and protecting our industry, yet simultaneously - as we prepare for the 2010 ICAO Assembly, the outcome of which will set the agenda for the next three years 2011-1013 – consider and implement new and effective ways to ensure a viable and safe air transport industry. Gung Hay Fat Choy!

The CAEP/8 meeting agreed a new aircraft engine NOx stringency


The ICAO Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection - CAEP/8 standard for Medium and Large engines (generally for aircraft over 100 seats) will be 15% lower than the old CAEP/6 standard. For Small engine families (generally for aircraft like regional jets under 100 seats) the reduction is 5%. The implementation date will be 31 December 2013 and one agreed caveat was that any engine production cut-off would not be implemented before 2018. ACI had supported a slightly higher new NOx standard (15% reduction) for smaller aircraft but an identical standard large aircraft. This was supported by European States. The US supported what became the final outcome. Some other States supported slightly less stringent standards. ACI and its members can be satisfied with the outcome. The aircraft and engine manufacturers (ICCAIA) and IATA supported a lesser standard for the very largest engines and have noted that it will be very difficult to modify some of the largest in-production engines to achieve this new standard by 2013. All recently certified and soon-to-be certified aircraft engine will comfortably comply with the standard. Next week Future Work will be considered including CO2 and Particulate Matter certification and possibly a new noise stringency standard on the work programme.

ACI World at work with Partners ACI World formalises a new Plan of Collaboration with WHO ACI World has agreed a new, 3-year, Plan of Collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) which formalizes its working relations with the UN body. This Plan of Collaboration supports the WHO Strategic Objective of strengthening public health security in travel and transport. Specifically, ACI will be working with the WHO to build the core capacities at airports that are required in the International Health Regulations (IHR) 2005. This will focus on developing best practice guidelines in three areas: • vector control management (e.g. controlling rodent and insect populations in and around airports to prevent the spread of disease); • pandemic preparedness; and • contingency planning for other public health risks.

Action required of airports As part of this work, the WHO has commissioned a survey to review the response to the Influenza A(H1N1) outbreak. Specifically, it focuses on the actions taken at airports, ports and border crossings during the period April- July 2009. The survey response period has been extended to 15 February, 2010. Please check with the responsible person to see if the survey has been completed for your airport. If it has not then we urge you to complete the survey now. The survey is completed anonymously and the results will be reported in aggregate form, thus ensuring complete confidentiality. The survey can be completed and submitted online HERE. []

Alternatively, it can be completed manually and emailed to

The Plan of Collaboration with WHO dovetails well with ACI’s pandemic preparedness work with ICAO. The ACI World Annual General Assembly passed a resolution in Kuala Lumpur urging governments and the industry to enhance their preparedness and capacity to deal with out breaks of communicable disease. It also urged national authorities and the industry to actively support the ICAO Cooperative Arrangement for Preventing the Spread of Communicable Disease through Air Travel (CAPSCA) initiative, in their region. This initiative brings together experts from various organizations (in government, public health and the aviation sector) from the countries in the region, that are responsible for planning and implementing the response to outbreaks of communicable disease.

Craig Bradbrook (Director, Security & Facilitation, ACI World) commented: “The Resolution passed at the General Assembly shows how important airports and ACI view this work. As we have seen in the past seven years, with SARS, Avian influenza and then A(H1N1), public health emergencies have the potential to disrupt air travel and airport operations. Such out breaks come without prior warning and can escalate into a crisis very quickly. Governments and the industry need to ensure that we are adequately prepared for the next outbreak.”

ACI World Standing Committees Vacancies on ACI World Standing Committees World Security Standing Committee World Facilitation & Services Standing Committee ACI World invites applications from airport representatives and World Business Partners who would be interested in serving as Members at Large on either the World Security Standing Committee or the World Facilitation & Services Standing Committee. These committees, which comprise 25 airport and business partner professionals from all regions of the world, play an invaluable role in supporting ACI and the World Governing Board. The role of a Standing Committee is to: • monitor industry developments and trends, and their implications on airports; • advise on strategic, policy and technical issues, and help formulate industry positions, particularly for ICAO Panels and working groups; • help define industry best practice and standards (where appropriate); • assist in the production of guidance material, training content and other publications; • advise on the need, and assist in the development of industry benchmark surveys, analysis and reports; and • advise on the staff training and developments needs of airports. World Security Standing Committee Covers all aspects of ICAO Annex 17, airport security and international aviation security regulation. Current key areas of focus include protecting landside areas of airports, integrating security with airport passenger facilitation, passenger and baggage screening technologies, human factors, cargo security and training.

Next Meeting of the World Security Standing Committee and World Facilitation & Services Standing Committee 29-30 April, 2010 in Orlando, Florida, after the ACI-NA Spring Conference. A special programme, including participation in the conference and joint sessions of the two committees is planned, together with a joint session with the ACI World Airport IT Standing Committee.

World Facilitation & Services Standing Committee Covers all aspects of ICAO Annex 9, the facilitation processes for passengers, baggage, cargo and mail, border clearance processes, facilitating passengers with reduced mobility, airport service quality, performance measurement and benchmarking, terminal design issues, inter-modal access to airports, public health issues and emergency preparedness. The appointment as a Member at Large is for a period of three years. Normally, there are one or possibly two meetings per year. The Committee also carries out work in between meetings using the internet and if necessary, conference calls. English is the working language for the committees. These Committees provide excellent networking and professional development opportunities. How to apply If you would like to nominate yourself or one of your colleagues for either of these committees, or would like further information, please contact Craig Bradbrook (Director, Security and Facilitation) at or telephone +41 22 717 8736.

ACI Standardized Information Services (ACI-SIS) Working Group A new IT initiative to enhance data exchange among airports and aviation partners The ACI Standardized Information Services (ACI-SIS) Working Group had its 2nd Meeting in Frankfurt 21st January. This collaborative initiative, which was launched at the last meeting of the ACI World Airport IT Standing Committee (AITSC) in Lisbon, June 2009, had its kick-off meeting in Amsterdam Schiphol last November. The main goal of this project is to provide recommendations to standardize, implement and integrate efficiently a set of information exchange processes among airports and partners, by means of using Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) concepts. The group is working on the development of open, standardized web-services, compatible with existing standard formats - as Aviation Information Data Exchange (AIDX) and Passenger Information Data Exchange (PADEX). At this stage, the group is focused on two main priorities : Common Bag-Drop services and Passenger Status services. Current participants include Schiphol Group, Fraport, Munich Airport, Indra, SITA and Siemens. Other airports and partners have shown great interest in this important initiative. If you are interested in participating, or just want to receive more information on ACI World Airport IT initiatives, please contact: or visit

Statistics PaxFlash and FreightFlashTraffic - December 2009 Strong traffic growth in December 2009 Global passenger traffic up by 5%; freight up 23% In December 2009, the ACI PaxFlash and FreightFlash traffic reports show a surge in traffic worldwide. Global airport passenger traffic rose by 5.3 percent relative to December 2008 (Table 1). Both international passenger traffic (up by 5.6 %) and domestic traffic (up by 5.2 %) were boosted by strong performance across Asia Pacific (+15.7 % international; +14% domestic). All regions saw increases, except for North America which remained flat ( see Table 2 in the complete release).

There are clear signs of renewed passenger traffic demand at many airports worldwide in this month’s results. International traffic grew faster than domestic traffic at most airports in China. Traffic in India, both domestic and international, surged in December (Delhi +32%, Bangalore, +37%, and Mumbai +29%, with Mumbai domestic traffic increasing by 39%). Similarly, traffic growth is on the mend in Russia driven by domestic traffic growth at the Moscow airports ranging from 21 to 40 percent. ACI World Director of Economics Andreas Schimm comments, “Looking at full year 2009, global traffic results were much better than expected early in the year, finishing at just 2.6 percent below 2008. Fears that third quarter traffic would decline substantially did not materialize, and the stabilization seen provided a platform for remarkable fourth quarter growth. Even taking into account falling global traffic demand in late 2008 and the impact on Asia Pacific results in 2008 of the closure of the Bangkok airport due to a political siege, which slightly inflate the percentage growth comparison, passenger and freight results are very promising. ” Overall, global figures were boosted by strong domestic traffic in China, India and Brazil where volumes surged in the second half of 2009. For the full year, traffic results highlight a split between the two largest aviation markets (North America and Europe) each of which lost more than 5 percent traffic in 2009, and the continued

expansion of Asia Pacific, Latin America-Caribbean and Middle East markets. Top performance results in the international category were seen at Dubai (+9.6%), Kuala Lumpur (+8.8%) and Istanbul (+7.3%), the only airports with more than 10 million passengers per annum to register growth in 2009. Airports in Africa suffered a moderate 3.5 percent setback for the year, mainly caused by declines in domestic traffic whereas international shrank only marginally. Freight results show that traffic in November and December was remarkably strong, balancing the severe losses sustained in the first quarter 2009 and narrowing the gap with performance in 2008. Table 3 (in the full report) indicates the positive performance figures for almost all regions (except Latin America- Caribbean domestic traffic), with international freight out pacing domestic in December and surging ahead by 28 percent. This strong result illustrates the mounting confidence in the global economic recovery and significant pent-up demand. Nonetheless, it is too early to consider this performance as a future indicator of a sustainable economic recovery as this rebound is of a more technical than fundamental nature. For the full year, freight traffic remains below 2008 performance ( -8% worldwide; - 2.8% domestic; -10.3% international). Schimm added, “ACI World and ACI Europe look forward to an excellent turn-out at their 2nd annual ACI Airport Economics and Finance Conference in London, 2324 February 2010. The situation is evolving rapidly now, and airport executives will have the opportunity to look at the ramifications of this market evolution, what it means not only in financial terms but also in terms of airport investments and future capacity.� Read the full press release with additional tables and charts

Quarter 3 2009 showed a marked improvement of passenger traffic and freight volumes compared previous quarters. While passenger traffic was almost flat at 0.3% (Figure 1), freight volumes shrank by 6.3%. Relative to the year-to-date performances these numbers clearly indicate the beginning of a recovery in the air transport sector and confirm signs of a recovery in the global economy as a whole. Also, passengers return faster to the market than capacity, as aircraft movements comparatively showed only a minor improvement in the third quarter. Quarter 3 figures are crucial as they represent the travel and holiday season, traditionally the busiest months of the year in terms of passenger volumes.

Airport Route Development and Marketing Following the request of many ACI member airports, ACI Training has developed an Airport Route Development and Marketing training course. Improving the function of an airport as a global connection point for the local economy, and developing its route network are key for the commercial success for an airport. Incoming and outgoing air services and passenger streams will stimulate the revenues from the aviation business and also increase the non-aeronautical revenue streams of the airport. This course aims to explain how an airport can successfully attract airlines to open new routes to fly to your airport. Two very successful Route Development Managers from ACI member airports will share their experiences and lead group discussions how to best prepare for a successful presentation to the airlines. Next courses: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 08-10 March Bologna, Italy 12-14 April For more information contact Nathalie Zulauf at
