Industry initiatives

We fulfill a huge role in driving industry initiatives

Our community remit ensures close ties to industry associations, such as the International Air Transport Association (IATA), International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), Civil Air Navigation Services Organization (CANSO) and Airports Council International (ACI). 

Like them, we’re a member-based organization, representing the air transport industry across the world. As part of our community role, we bring together community stakeholders to address the global challenges of our rapidly evolving industry.


The Airport Management Professional Accreditation Program (AMPAP) is the only international educational accreditation program for senior airport management in the world.
