October 2010 Message

from the Director General Airports rarely get credit for the substantial progress being made towards meeting aviation’s environmental targets. The community of airports needs to speak out regularly to avoid losing the political and community support for our continuing need for development and optimum operations. This must be a sustained effort, not the occasional comment, if we are to convey our achievements to the right audiences, locally and beyond.  ACI too is strengthening its voice on airport environmental action that contributes to beneficial growth in an environmentally responsible manner. At the 5th Aviation & Environment Summit held mid-September in Geneva, I was joined by ACI World Governing Board Chair Max MooreWilton from Sydney and airport representatives Lena Wennberg, Environment Strategy Manager at Swedavia and Jan Metsovitis, Director of Aviation for Athens International Airport in representing airport views.  At that meeting ACI Europe Director General Olivier Jankovec announced the successful first year results of the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme in Europe as well as expansion of coordination efforts with Eurocontrol and other European partners to make our system more carbon efficient.   Elsewhere around the globe, ACI North America recently announced the annual awards to member airports that have had notable success with their environmental programmes.  ACI Latin America

- Caribbean Region will welcome the next environment symposium in Quito to encourage heightened awareness and the spread of best practice in the region, as did ACI Africa last year in Cairo.    And ACI Asia-Pacific, where many airports have garnered ‘green’ awards, has formed a new environmental committee to promote best practices and concerted efforts across this vast region. Meanwhile on the global scene, the ICAO Triennial Assembly meeting is underway in Montreal, and ACI World is there supporting the global sectoral approach for international aviation. This has been the most contentious issue at the Assembly but we hope to see a final conference Resolution on environment that will, in turn, serve as the basis of an aviation submission to the next UNFCCC climate change meeting in Cancun in December. So to each of you I say, make sure your airport’s success story is known to your community.  Get involved with ACI World and Regional environment committees.  Share your success stories with us so that we can publish them to the right audiences at the regional and global levels. Our environmental investments are proof of our commitment to local residents.  Don’t miss the opportunity to communicate your engagement and contributions to a sustainable future for aviation.

ACI World at ICAO

ICAO Assembly - 37th Session Georgina Graham After weeks, if not years, of preparation the ICAO Assembly is well underway, and indeed by the time you read this, will have come to an end. The opening of the Assembly was marked by a gathering of dignitaries and delegates - so many that in the main Assembly Hall it was standing room only.  From Canada (as the host country), Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities, The Right Honourable Chuck Strahl accompanied by Jean Charest the Premier of Quebec and Gérald Tremblay the Mayor of Montreal. United States Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano was also present at the ceremony and in her opening intervention reiterated President Obama’s commitment to ICAO’s Aviation Security programme, particularly since the NW253 incident on 25 December shows that aviation still remains a target for terrorists.  Ministers, Director Generals of Civil Aviation and high level representatives were present from many states and the opening ceremonies, lead by President of the Council, Roberto Kobeh González, set the stage for the over 1400 delegates in attendance, from 164 Member States and 41 Observer Delegations to proceed to set aviation policy in the strategic areas of Safety, Security and Environment for the next three years.  The President opened the gathering by outlining how far ICAO and the industry have come since the last Assembly in 2007, but also how much further we have to go.  The President noted that the forecasts of an increasing population (from 6.9 billion today to 9 billion by 2050 according to the United Nations Population Division) will put pressures on the existing infrastructure that

without investment certainly will not be able to cope. Airports are well aware of this and have been planning and developing facilities to facilitate the handling of hundreds of millions of additional travellers.  Of course with additional growth will come additional challenges, not just related to accommodating the number of passengers.  The results in the areas of Safety, Security and Environment could also be degraded if we do not act now to ensure a firm strategic foundation is laid for improvements in these areas.  The Assembly’s role is to do just that, and to assist in this task over 400 Working and Information Papers were submitted by Member States, the Council of ICAO, the Secretariat and Observer Organizations.   In order to address the issues raised in these papers, five Committees/Commissions were established to run in parallel and report back to the Plenary.  These five Committees/Commissions were the Executive Committee, and Commissions covering Administration, Legal, Technical and Economic matters.  More detail will be provided in next month’s World Report about the outcome of all the deliberations.  At the time of writing, the Environment debate continues unabated as a select group of States try to reach consensus on a number of key issues that will shape the aviation industry’s policy on climate change for years to come. Ambitious goals have already been adopted in the Programme of Action from last year’s High Level Meeting on Aviation and Climate Change.   But in order to truly address aviation’s impact on climate change, even more measures must be put in place to ensure that environmental concerns do not constrain the future development of international aviation. On one side of the debate, certain states have pushed for market based measures to be

ACI World Report - October 2010 adopted, on the other side some states feel that the key to addressing the environmental challenges faced by aviation is the principle of “Common But Differentiated Responsibility” also known as CBDR. In this context CBDR would mean that developed countries assume a greater share of the responsibility for addressing their historical emissions whilst also permitting states (particularly developing nations) to address their own responsibilities in accordance with their own capability to do so going forward.  One of the other key issues that the Assembly has addressed is which States will sit on the ICAO Council for the next three years.    On Saturday 2nd October, Council elections were held for the States considered to be of chief importance in air transport (Part 1) and States which make the largest contribution to the provision of facilities for international civil air navigation (Part 2).  161 States were permitted to vote, which determined that each state must receive at least 81 votes in order to be successful.  Eleven seats were available in Part 1 of the elections and there were eleven candidates: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom and the United States. 

Swaziland, Uganda and United Arab Emirates.   The new Council will convene shortly after the Assembly has ended and these States must ensure they have permanent representation in Montreal during their three-year term. Improving the safety of the global air transport system, ensuring the security of the travelling public and addressing aviation’s impact on climate change are clear mandates for ICAO, the industry and States as we enter the next triennium. 

ICAO has been based in Montreal for the past 60 years and both the City of Montreal and the Province of Quebec are very proud of the aviation hub that Montreal has become. Canada was also one of the 52 original Member States of ICAO.

In Part 2 of the elections, there were twelve candidates for twelve seats with 163 States permitted to vote. The twelve successful candidates were: Argentina, Belgium, Columbia, Denmark, Egypt, India, Mexico, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa and Spain. As we go to Press, the results have just been received for Part 3 of the elections (for States who ensure all geographic areas of the world are represented on the Council) for which there were 15 candidates contesting 13 seats.  The successful candidates were Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cuba, Guatemala, Malaysia, Morocco, Paraguay, Peru, Republic of Korea, Slovenia,

working with Partners 5th Aviation & Environment Summit Xavier Oh The Air Transport Action Group (ATAG), the aviation industry umbrella group, called governments who comprise both ICAO and the UNFCCC to develop a global framework to address aviation emissions. The industry needs to have open access to carbon markets, in order to make the necessary national commitments to achieve enhanced air traffic management efficiency and develop sustainable alternative fuels for aviation. Over 300 delegates from 47 countries, including representatives of the aviation industry, governments and NGOs met in Geneva, Switzerland in September at the 5th Aviation & Environment Summit. The 1½-day event included a showcase the initiatives by airports and other stakeholders to reduce aircraft emissions including Collaborative Decision Making, Continuous Descent Operations and Airport Carbon Accreditation.

Airport blueprint for the environment: vision and action Angel Gittens Speaking at the opening session of the 5th Aviation & Environment Summit in Geneva, Angela Gittens, Director General of ACI World, calls on airports and their aviation partners to broaden their vision and action plan in order to be more responsive to the communities we serve.

For more information about the Summit read the Summit Communiqué, also click the image below to watch the video of Paul Steele, ATAG.

ATAG has developed a united industry position supporting a global sectoral approach to improve the efficiency of global aircraft emissions by 1.5% per year, carbon neutral growth by 2020 and achieving absolute emissions reductions of 50% (based on 2005 levels) by 2050. ACI supports this position for aircraft emissions. Members can contribute actively by providing APU (auxiliary power unit) replacement facilities, efficient taxiing infrastructure and procedures, and aircraft congestion relief. ACI also encourages its members to address non-aviation airport emissions associated with terminals, fleet vehicles, ground support equipment and ground access vehicles, not included in the ATAG targets.

ACI World Report - October 2010

2010 ASQ Forums are the largest ever held James Ingram, DKMA The annual ASQ Airport Forums were held in three of the world’s largest airports: Atlanta, London and Tokyo. Fittingly, the 2010 forums were also the largest ever held, bringing together 200 representatives from airports participating in the ASQ Programme. The airport forums provide a unique opportunity to meet with colleagues from around the world and discuss the challenges and opportunities for improving the quality of airport services.

 The airport forums are also the opportunity to discuss industry best practices in managing service quality. The topic chosen for this year was airport way finding with Heathrow and Narita presenting the innovative approaches they are using to help passengers find their way within such large airports. ACI would like to take the opportunity to thank the teams at Atlanta, London Heathrow and Narita Airport for hosting such outstanding, unforgettable forums.

Delegates at the ASQ Airport Forum in Tokyo During the events, presentations were given by Cancun, Zurich, Heathrow, Narita, Dammam and ACSA, sharing how they are using ASQ to continuously improve the passenger experience at their airports. DKMA presented new trends in passenger services as well as the benefits of creating a customer focused organization, and how the ASQ initiative provides a comprehensive framework for managing service quality.

In Asia-Pacific only Bangkok Suvarnabhumi recorded a mild drop in passengers (-0.5%) whereas the other 36 airports in the sample all reported growth led by airports in China and India. An 11.6 percent increase in international was supplemented by 9 percent growth in domestic passenger resulting in 9.9 percent overall growth. The Middle East (+1.3%) experienced a marked slowdown in air travel as the Ramadan season covered the best part of August reducing travel activity which also had some effect on passenger numbers in other regions such as Africa, Europe and Asia-Pacific. ACI Director Economics, Andreas Schimm comments, “While it is normal to see growth numbers coming down as we start to compare growth against growth, it is positive to see that the number of airports that still lose traffic reduced drastically with some regions showing nothing but positive figures in the sample. Further softening of growth rates can be expected during the last 4 months so that worldwide passenger numbers are expected to increase between 4 and 5 percent in 2010”. In the freight market, international freight for the first time since November 2009 grew less than 20 percent significantly down from its 35 percent peak in May (Table 3). The Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region registered the slowest international growth rates at 10.6 percent and 17.1 percent respectively. The other regions retained

ACI World Report - October 2010 growth above 20 percent lead by Africa (+35.3%) and North America (+23.8%). Domestic freight was accelerated by a 9.1 percent increase in North America which contrasted with a modest 3.1 percent growth in Asia-Pacific. Schimm comments: “Total freight growth in August of 15.1 percent was lower than the 12month rolling average of 16.6 percent which indicates a sharp softening of the recovery. The relatively moderate numbers in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East which account for half of the international air freight market could point to further slowing of trade.”

Airside Safety Handbook 2010 ACI World have just published the The revised content of the Airside Safety Handbook builds upon the existing guidance in the ACI Policies and Recommended Practices Handbook, with safety related policies included in this publication for easy reference. While remaining short and succinct, it provides checklists for action, as well as an explanation of risks to be assessed and means of mitigation available.

As stated in the text, local risk assessments are inevitably necessary to the safe operation of an airport. Much of the text has been distilled from excellent guidance material available from several large Civil Aviation Authorities around the world, ACI Member Airports’ operational safety procedures, ICAO material and other international aviation and non-aviation organizations’ publications pertaining to safety.

ACI Fund

ACI Global Training and Manchester Metropolitan University together for Green Airports The 5th Aviation and Environment Summit that took place early September in Geneva highlighted the need to continue the common efforts of the air industry in making airports greener.   New research and technologies are continuously being developed. But strong support is needed from governments to fully enable the aviation industry to succeed in their targets for cleaner skies.   ACI Global Training in collaboration with Manchester Metropolitan University are now offering aviation environment courses. Two courses were delivered in Abu Dhabi: “Airport Carbon Management” and “Managing Airport Sustainably” from 19 - 21 September.

40th ACI Fund Seminar brings 17 African nations together Safety was again the focus of the ACI Fund seminar with its theme “Understanding ICAO Annex 14”. Wildlife Management, Emergency Planning, and Safety Management Systems (SMS) were some of the many topics that were also discussed at this session.

As complementary as individualistic, these environmental courses bring the essential knowledge and tools to help airports in achieving the global mission to reduce the emission and be more environmentally responsible. For more information and for the next sessions, please visit the Global Training website:

In collaboration with CIFAL Atlanta and UNITAR, the ACI Fund hosted its 40th Fund Seminar (1820 September) in Abuja, Nigeria, following on from the ACI Africa Regional Conference. Understanding ICAO Annex 14 is frequently requested as a subject, being both important and useful tools that participants can put into practice at their own airports. The great interaction and group exercises allowed the delegates to share experiences and understand the different requirements needed at individual airports. The class made up of 32 participants from 17 African nations highlighted the continued need for training in the African region. The ACI Fund is committed to pursue his mission to provide high quality seminars to developing nations. Next session: “Understanding ICAO Annex 14”, 29 Nov – 01 Dec, Abu Dhabi, UAE
