eVTOLs – A New Way to Fly
Airports Council International (ACI) Asia-Pacific and Middle East supports the development of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) and electric-powered Vertical Take-off and Landing aircraft (eVTOLs). Representing 623 members from 47 countries/ territories, ACI Asia-Pacific will advocate the positive position onf AAMs by presenting a discussion paper in the upcoming ICAO 58th Conference of Directors General of Civil Aviation – Asia and Pacific Region in Dhaka, Bangladesh in October. Besides, ACI Asia-Pacific and Middle East will formulate a discussion panel in Airports Innovate, our next big event in Muscat, Oman in November.

ACI Asia-Pacific Director General, Stefano Baronci, reflects on a busy and successful end to 2022.
Improved Operational and Workforce Efficiency With Next-Gen Ground Handling Technology
Managing staff, equipment, and resources in an airport are challenging. They should be ready to meet service agreements and operational requirements regardless of delays or unpredictable difficult situations. However, it is not possible to afford overtime or extra pay under these circumstances. Therefore, managing limited assets is crucial for the maximum effectiveness of airport operations.
Maximising Airport Car Park Revenue - Data Science Perspective
Airports are the new age malls! Over the years, airports have transitioned from merely being travel points to social and commercial hubs. As passenger choices and needs continue to evolve, the airports, too, are rediscovering themselves to offer more than just travel. Another factor contributing to the constant innovation is the increased competition between airports. As the megapolis expands, the need to plan multiple airports fuels this competition within the city airports too. They have realized that to achieve commercial success and remain a preferred airport for passengers, they must offer a broad spectrum of supporting services to elevate the passenger experience and increase revenue.
Investing in Our Future – A Sustainable Frontier for Airport Infrastructure
Airports Council International published the Global Outlook of Airport Capital Expenditure that anticipates the capital investments will be needed to address the long-term trend in passenger demand, and to achieve the long-term carbon emissions target of net zero by 2050. The publication was done in collaboration with Oxford Economics, with the financial support of Hamad International Airport, Qatar.
Digitization Drives Sustainability, Passenger Experience and Revenue Growth at Airports
The rate of global sea level rise in the past 2 decades is approximately double of the last century. The warmest years, as recorded by NASA, are 2016 and 2020. Much of this is due to increased carbon dioxide emissions.

ACI Asia-Pacific Director General Stefano Baronci reflects on some of the operational, financial and manpower challenges facing the region’s airports and provides an overview on ACI Asia-Pacific’s latest advocacy efforts.
Airport Groups: Engines of Recovery
Airports Council International has published a comprehensive study on the business model of Airport Groups, also known as multi-airport operators. The study examined the value created by Airport Groups and how the business model benefits the aviation ecosystem.
