Low-altitude Economy to Fly High – China Makes Great Strides in Advanced Air Mobility Development
2023 was an important year for Advanced Air Mobility (AAM). Manufacturers of electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft (eVTOL) around the world have made significant progress in developing their equipment and vehicles, as well as satisfying some of the necessary requirements for obtaining Type Certification (TC).
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.
Collaborative efforts lead to ACI ACA Level 4+ ‘Transition’ status for Hawke’s Bay Airport
Hawke’s Bay Airport is proud to have achieved the highest level of Airports Council International Airport Carbon Accreditation, and is the only airport in Australasia with Level 4+ ‘Transition’ status, the top tier of the programme
Digital Innovations at the Passenger Checkpoint Taking Performance and Efficiency to New Levels
Integrated, data-driven and open security solutions are helping airports around the world transform passenger checkpoints and achieve the highest levels of security and operational efficiency. Driven by artificial intelligence, automation and connectivity, new digital technologies push productivity up and bring costs down - and ultimately improve passenger experience.
Incheon Airport: Delivering a World-Class Passenger Experience
Sunny Yoon, executive director of Incheon International Airport Corporation’s Terminal Operation Group, talks to ACI Asia-Pacific’s Sunil Subbaiah about the South Korean hub’s commitment to delivering a world-class passenger experience.
Eyes on China: Aviation Recovery Gathers Pace
Airports Council International (ACI) estimated that China would contribute about 21% of global passenger traffic growth in the next two decades and overtake USA as the largest aviation market in the world before 2035. ACI Asia-Pacific’s upcoming mission to China will strengthen its engagements and collaborations with airports, regulators, industry associations and financial institutions in several areas, including capacity building, data exchange and environmental stewardship.
BLR Airport: The promise of a sustainable present and future
As the country’s third busiest airport that connects Bengaluru to 78 domestic and 25 international destinations, BLR Airport is committed to create a sustainable future.
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.
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.
