According to Angela Gittens, Director General, ACI World, “This very special milestone project symbolizes the very best quality of ACI World’s legacy — 20 years of unwavering support of the airport community. Just 20 years ago, ACI was born from negotiations and the merger of two international organizations and today stands strong along with ICAO and IATA as the three pillars of civil aviation. Born from an ambitious agenda, ACI World continues to operate in dedicated service to its members worldwide, in the best interests of airports and in promotion of professional excellence in airport management and operations. Prior to the establishment of ACI in 1991, the airport organizations that existed at the time counted 350 member airports. In 2011, ACI counts 580 members operating 1650 airports in 179 countries and territories — Happy 20th Anniversary ACI.”
