Message from the Director General Last ce chan p nu - sig
Over the summer the working groups at ICAO, ACI staff and world standing committees have kept up the momentum on several key issues: economics, environment and IT. Airports by definition adhere to a long term vision of delivering excellent customer service in a safe, secure and environmentally responsible manner, yet achieving efficiencies and cutting costs without compromising service delivery. New IT technologies boost our ability to meet those objectives and streamline processes that underlie our passenger and cargo processing procedures. We continue to pursue agreement on common protocols and recommended standards with our airline and airport service providers. ACIâ€™s World Environment Standing Committee (WESC) is moving ahead on producing an overarching framework for airport greenhouse gas and climate change programmes. Such a framework ensures that regional and national initiatives and conventions fit together without contradictions. To progress collectively on the environment, we need common definitions and clarifications of relevant, sometimemisinterpreted terms, and metrics. At the same time, ACI is actively working at ICAO to ensure that although the focus today is on carbon emissions and climate change, we do not lose sight of the high priorities of noise, NOx emissions, water quality and wildlife management. We have just jointly submitted a position paper with IATA and CANSO to the ICAO High Level Meeting on International Aviation and Climate Change that makes this point. That meeting, scheduled for early October, will set the stage for a global approach to aviation emissions. The Economics Committee report is also included in this issue. Non aeronautical revenues are an increasingly key component for healthy airport balance sheets, and I look forward meeting with many of you at the next ACI World Airport Business & Trinity conference in Macau at the end of September, where airports, retailers and brands will exchange innovative ideas and solutions to enhance airport earning power. Angela Gittens Director General
ACI World at ICAO The ICAO Council recessed in early July and will resume in late September.
Environment During the upcoming ICAO session, ACI will be attending the High Level meeting on International Aviation Climate Change in October, and an Environment meeting in Brazil. ICAO Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection (CAEP) CAEP/8 in February 2010 will consider a new NOx stringency standard and reports on Curfews, Encroachment, Noise technology, Operational and Technology goals for noise, NOx, Fuel burn, plus a guidance manual on airport air quality. The current draft CAEP/9 (2010-2013) work programme includes new stringency standards for CO2, noise and particulate matter. Climate change issues will be given higher priority and there is a possibility that a new standard might be delayed for another 3 years.
ACI World Standing Committees ACI World Economics Standing Committee meets in Istanbul The ACI World Economics Standing Committee met in Istanbul, Turkey, on 31 August - 1 September, hosted by TAV Airports. The key agenda items of the meeting included the revision of the economics section of the ACI Policy and Recommended Practices Handbook, in preparation for adoption at the ACI World Annual General Assembly in Kuala Lumpur, in November 2009. The Committee also reviewed the Working Papers for the revision of the ICAO Airport Economics Manual which is due for completion at the end of 2009. Also on the agenda was the 2nd Airport Economics and Finance Conference which will be held in London on 23 - 24 February 2010. The conference content and speakers were discussed. Jeff Poole, Director Industry Charges, Fuel and Taxation at IATA, led a session on the relationship between airlines and airports, giving an overview on the state of the industry and recent developments in airport / airline relationships. The group took the opportunity to discuss this in open dialogue and expressed concerns about the very short-term planning horizon of the airline industry.
The outgoing Committee Chairman, Leo Fermin (SFO) will be succeeded by Dr Walled Youssef (TAV Airports), and Mr Chris Poinsatte (DFW) will take up the position of Vice Chairman. The next meeting will be held in Singapore in March 2010.

July 2009 PaxFlash and FreightFlashTraffic Statistics Global air traffic sees softer contraction in July Asia Pacific reports strong domestic market growth
GENEVA, 02 September 2009 – Global passenger traffic in July 2009 showed positive signs of stabilisation, according to the ACI PaxFlash report. ACI World Director General Angela Gittens comments, “This is a scenario where we can draw optimism from a negative. Although overall traffic is still lower than 2008, the gap is narrowing significantly. Total traffic worldwide was down by 1.2 percent in July, but reflects a rising growth trend when compared to declines of 5 percent in June and 8 percent in May. It may still be too soon to assume the worst is over, but results in a few key markets are most encouraging. ” Three regions – Asia Pacific, Latin America & Caribbean and Middle East – recorded overall growth in July, a first for this year. Also for the first time this year, domestic traffic worldwide for July grew by 0.9 percent, driven by excellent results in the Asia Pacific region (+10.1%) and Latin America & Caribbean (+ 9.5 %). Although total international traffic remained depressed (-3.4 %) compared to July 2008, this is a marked improvement over the 7 percent decline recorded in June 2009 – June 2008 comparison. The Middle East and Africa regions both report positive international growth (respectively 11.6 and 0.7 percent increases).

The ACI FreightFlash report similarly reflects this rising traffic trend. Although results are still below 2008 figures, the steep downward spiral of the first quarters has ceased. Worldwide global freight traffic was down by 8.7 percent in July 2009 over July 2008, but is a notable improvement compared to the year to date results for January-July (-17.2 %) or for the past 12 months (-14.7%) as shown in the Summary Table below. For international freight, the Middle East region saw positive growth at a 3.5 percent increase. For domestic traffic, only Asia Pacific reported strong results (+12.1%), due in large part due to activity at Chinese airports. North America’s results were down by 3.5 percent, yet equally an improvement over previous months. European and Latin American freight results remain more seriously depressed.

The ACI Worldwide Airport Traffic Report 2008 is now available in PDF and Excel formats. A record number of 1357 airports participated in the survey this year, representing approximately 98 percent of global airport traffic. The latest report includes traffic analysis, trend charts, country-by-country and airport-by-airport data. Annual reports for previous years (1991-2007) are also available.

One of the core roles of the ASQ Management Programme is to assist airports in the implementation of best practice identified through the ASQ Survey and ASQ Performance. By analysing and collating the results of hundreds of airports’ customer satisfaction surveys and through regular meetings and discussions with the airports, the ASQ initiative is building a best practice model of service quality in an airport. ASQ Assured helps airports meet the challenge of managing service quality in a very dynamic industry environment by recognizing the initiatives and processes in place at the airport.

Calgary hosts the ASQ Americas Forum Calgary Airport Authority (CAA) hosted this year’s ASQ Americas Forum, with more than 30 participants attending from 26 airports. Participants were given a ‘White Hat Welcome’, in a tradition dating back more than 50 years. The white cowboy hat has now become synonymous with the city of Calgary and its renowned hospitality. In his welcome remarks, Garth Atkinson, President & CEO, CAA, spoke of the importance of benchmarking and the integral role that the ASQ Survey plays in the business management process at CAA. He reminded us that when it comes to customer service, perception is reality and airports need to be attentive to the voice of the passenger. The ASQ Survey helps the CAA to get detailed passenger feedback and to compare its performance historically and against comparable airports. The Forum has evolved from its origins as a user group meeting focusing on technical issues, into a Forum where best practices are shared. In this year’s Forum, Atlanta, Austin, Calgary and Halifax gave presentations on their approaches to managing service quality. DKMA also presented the interim results of their industry benchmarking studies on Internet Access and Parking Facilities at airports. These studies, involving the 130 airports in the ASQ Survey, will be completed later this year. ACI thanks Garth Atkinson and the team at CAA for hosting an excellent forum. Look out for the next regional ASQ Forum: Europe, 9 – 11 September 2009 in Paris Asia, Middle East and Africa, 23 - 25 September 2009 in Singapore.

ICAO/ACI Airport Management Professional Accreditation Programme (AMPAP) represents an innovative The
partnership between the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and Airports Council International (ACI). This is the first global programme of its kind. Its successful completion leads to the International Airport Professional (IAP) designation. The Programme, which is conducted jointly by ICAO and ACI, was launched in March 2007 and is designed for airport managers worldwide. This joint initiative was a response to current circumstances in the airport industry where the profession of airport leadership has become increasingly challenging and complex, and there is a compelling need to promote professionalism in the field of airport management. AMPAP is therefore designed to raise awareness of best practices across the international airport landscape and to also highlight the importance of ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) and policies in terms of their practical applicability for airport managers in assuring the safety, security and environmental sustainability of the industry.
