ACI SOUND BITES


Modernizing the way we finance airport improvement projects is the best way for airports to meet the
needs of the 21st century traveling public. The investments we make today will drive growth into the
future, because we know the economic impact of airports extends far beyond the runway.
Kevin M. Burke, President and CEO, ACI North America
(from an ACI North America blog post titled Serious Airports Require Serious Solutions)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

During this two-day commercial forum, we aim not only to create a networking atmosphere among
commercial leaders of Latin American and Caribbean Airports, but also to build up commercial
opportunities that may grow into new and innovative ways of generating the revenue needed for the
development of airport infrastructure in our ever-growing region.
Javier Martinez, Director General, ACI Latin America-Caribbean
(at the ACI-LAC Commercial Management Forum in Miami, 1920 June 2014)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We must continue working in our respective areas of expertise to advance air liberalization, increase
cooperation among African stakeholders and reduce protectionism, which limits market access and as a
consequence curtails the economic spinoffs of aviation.
Ali Tounsi, Secretary General, ACI Africa
(on the best way forward for the aviation industry in Africa)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Airport Carbon Accreditation was extended to the Asia-Pacific region of ACI in November 2011 from ACI
EUROPE, and recently it was also extended to the Africa region. Sixteen airports are currently accredited
and these airports are continuing their efforts in carbon emissions management and working towards
carbon neutrality. I must congratulate these airports for they are willing to go above and beyond the norm
in reducing and managing their carbon emissions.
Patti Chau, Regional Director, ACI Asia-Pacific
(on the good work that Asia-Pacific airports are doing to reduce carbon emissions during the Airport
Carbon Accreditation certificate ceremony in Seoul, Korea, 27 May 2014)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This past year alone, the collective efforts of European airports in the [Airport Carbon Accreditation]
programme yielded a net reduction of 353,842 tonnes of CO2, enough to power 147,781 households
for a year. And thats just last year. Were five years into this, with real momentum. We will keep going,
seeking new efficiencies and innovation to reduce the airport industrys carbon footprint and also expand
the geographical reach of the programme.

sets attendance record as industry leaders gather to
discuss Serving the customer and the community
The Airports Council International (ACI) AsiaPacific/World Annual General Assembly (WAGA)
2014 concluded on 28 May 2014 in Seoul, Korea
after three successful days that included a
robust conference programme; a fully subscribed
Safety Symposium; an at-capacity World
Human Resources Forum; a lively exhibition;
and ample networking opportunities at a variety
of social events. Graciously hosted by Incheon
International Airport, this years event set a
record for the highest number of attendees at any
WAGA outside of North America, underscoring its
importance as the premier event of the calendar
year for worldwide airports.
During the Assembly, Director General of ACI
World Angela Gittens noted the importance of this
years theme, Airports: Serving the customer
and the community, to the continued growth of

airports specifically and the aviation industry in


general. She noted that to achieve our collective
goals, collaboration among industry stakeholders
is key.
Collaboration extends our reach and makes more
progress possible, Gittens said. We are stronger
together, but we would not be seen as valuable
allies if we were not seen as capable of providing
solutionsif we were not seen as having high
standards and were not committed to achieving
them. This is where the community of airports
the promotion of excellencecomes to the fore.
Next years World Annual General Assembly will
be hosted by Tocumen International Airport and
will take place in Panama from 31 August2

ACIs 2nd Safety Symposium


a resounding success
By David Gamper, Director, Safety and Technical, ACI World

ACIs 2nd Safety Symposium took place during the


ACI Asia-Pacific/World Annual General Assembly
in Seoul, Korea on 26 May 2014. Angela Gittens,
Director General, ACI World, opened the event
by noting that ACI and the rest of the industry
have made huge efforts to enhance airport safety,
most particularly in runway safety and also by
introducing safety management systems, studying
incident data and identifying and mitigating risks.
She was very proud of the success of the Airport
Excellence (APEX) in Safety programme, with 19
commitments for APEX reviews in 2014 and over
55 Safety Partner airports, and that we are now
able to conduct an APEX review in English, French
or Spanish. However, she noted that ACI and its
airport members will not rest on their laurels. the
Symposium will help shape the next steps in ACIs
continuous efforts to raise the bar on safety at
airports.
the Keynote AddressBuilding an effective
safety culture across a national network of
airportswas given by Bongani Maseko, CEO of
Airports Company South Africa and ACI World
Governing Board Liaison for Safety. He noted
that airport operators develop and operate some
of the busiest, most extensive and complex
infrastructure in the world and over the next two

decades passenger traffic will more than double,


with even faster growth in Asia-Pacific and the
Middle East. He asked whether aerodrome safety
is ready for such development and improving
fast enough to keep up with aviation growth. He
highlighted the necessity for a real safety culture,
and described his own companys efforts in this
field.
Next, Benito De Leon, Acting Associate
Administrator for Airports at the Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) gave a presentation on
the FAAs initiatives for improvement of Runway
Safety, covering a host of issues: surface
operations, Accident data, runway safety areas,
arresting systems (EMAS), problematic taxiway
geometry, runway incursions and Runway Safety
Teams, aircraft rescue and firefighting, wildlife
strikes and hazards and foreign object debris
detection. He stressed the excellent results in
the US from sustained FAA campaigns on runway
safety.

that conclusively established the worth of this


activity. She started by describing a mature
safety management system, noting that this
needs more than analysis of incidents, accidents
and so-called lagging indicators; it should set
relevant targets and measure success or failure
(i.e., target achieved/not achieved) using incident
data, employee surveys, inspections, observations
and audits, goals, plans and objectives, and
performance appraisals.
Jennifer Sullivan, Director, Corporate Policy, Safety
and Security, Greater Toronto Airports Authority
covered ACI Best Practice handbooks and the
ACI World Safety and Technical Committees
work plan. She explained that the new Runway
Safety Handbook was published in February
and we are already seeing favourable reactions

Aerodromes Study Group;
participation in the ICAO Aerodromes
Panel and other Panels such as the Safety
Management Panel and working groups; and
influencing many other developments, such
as:
1. de-icing fluid specifications (with the SAE G12
Committee);
2. airport skills and competency (with ACI Global
Training);
3. ACIs contribution to IATAs Ground Operations
Manual (IGOM); and
4. the ACI recommended practice on Safety
Key Performance Indicators and a system for
airport safety data collection, storage and
dissemination.
The sponsor of the Symposium, Flexolite,
then gave an introduction to the company
and explained what distinguishes it from its
competitorsnamely a complete system for
markings, tailored to suit individual airports.

Julieanne Alroe, CEO & Managing Director,


Brisbane Airport Corporation Pty Limited spoke on
the need for Safety Performance Indicators.

All members attending the Symposium received


a USB key containing the ICAO Runway Safety
Implementation Kit, compiled by ACI, ICAO and
eleven partner organizations. It includes valuable
guidance material accumulated by all parts of the
industry over many years, including ACIs latest
publication on the subject, the ACI Runway Safety
Handbook.

Benefits of ACIs Airport Excellence


in Safety Programme highlighted at
2nd Safety Symposium
By Christopher Miles, Head, APEX in Safety, ACI World
The ACI Safety Symposium took place
on 26 May as part of the overall program
of the World Annual General Assembly
in Seoul, Korea. A key component of the
symposium focused on the ACI Airport
Excellence (APEX) in Safety programme,
with presentations from Host Airports,
Safety Partner Airports and airports that
have become both a partner and a host.
The key message that resonated across all
presentations was that the management
of operational safety is an ongoing journey
that the whole organization must be
involved in. Through the frank and open
dialogue that an APEX review fosters, the
airport can challenge its own operational
policies to mitigate vulnerabilities and drive
strategies that will improve its performance.
The four airports that presented were
Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA),
Incheon Airport (ICN), Beijing Capital
International Airport (BCIA) and Airports
of Mauritius (AML). Representing different
sizes and complexities as well as geographic
regions, all were aligned on the merits of
participation in the APEX programme.

Ms. Eun-Byul Kim of Incheon International Airport


speaks on the benefits of the APEX in Safety
programme at the 2nd Safety Symposium held in
Seoul, Korea 26 May 2014.

Romesh Bhoyroo of Airports of Mauritius


explained that the APEX review ensured that the

Ms. Cao Yajing of BCIA stated that the APEX


review allowed her airport the opportunity
to share best practices with a pool of
global experts and continue to access this
resource in the future. Jennifer Sullivan of
the GTAA felt that the APEX review offered
her airport a chance to validate their safety
performance from an outside perspective,
thereby ensuring that potential risks had
not been overlooked. Romesh Bhoyroo
of AML explained that the APEX review
ensured that the recently completed capital
works were aligned with international
standards while also supporting the airports
commitment to becoming a reference for
safety in the region. Ms. Eun-Byul Kim of
ICN, whose airport had provided resources
for APEX reviews at other airports,
reinforced that this work allowed them to
challenge their own operational practices to
deliver improvements in their airport.

Attracting airport professionals


By Kevin Caron, Head, Global Training & Human Resources, ACI World

ACI member airports continue to strive


and innovate when it comes to attracting,
developing and promoting their team
of professionals. The end goal of these
activities is to ensure that airports meet the
future needs of the communities they serve
and those of the broader commercial air
transport industry.
A well-defined Human Resources plan needs
to be coordinated by HR professionals that
are viewed as strategic partners/advisors
to the executive leadership. Additionally,
this plan has to be linked to, and created in
line with, the airports long-term vision and
mission as articulated in its strategic plan.
The demand for quality talent will continue
to be high for airports, and employer
branding offers an HR strategy that can
fill those talent gaps and combat skill
shortages.

The demand for quality


talent will continue to
be high for airports, and
employer branding offers
an HR strategy that can
fill those talent gaps and
combat skill shortages.
Talent attraction
Historically, airports have not widely been
known as providing careers; indeed,
many on the outside are unclear as to the
important role the airport organization
plays within the local community and
worldwide. I have witnessed this on
many occasions, either while teaching

or speaking at conferences, when I ask


airport professionals to raise their hand
if, in school, they had thought about a
career at an airport. To date Ive only had
five people raise their hands. Why is this?
We all know that airports provide both
rewarding and challenging careers, but until
recently we have not excelled at making
ourselves known as choice employers. This
is achieved by recruitment marketing, also
known as employer branding.

Employer branding
Employer branding has emerged as a way
for HR professionals to promote the airport
organization to prospective candidates.
HR can accomplish this through the use of
branding, targeting, lead generation and
more to build the airport organizations
name and product, and to spread the
word at local schools and universities, for
example, or at trade fairs or any number of
other promotional channels.
The issue here is that most HR professionals
possess little experience as marketers. To
begin, HR professionals can team up with
the airports marketing department, which
will have extensive strategic marketing
experience. The HR and marketing
team can work on messaging before the
organization starts looking for talent. In
this way, marketing-minded staff can offer
insight into how a message appears to
different audiences, such as a future safety
officer or air service development manager.
Indeed, when it comes to attracting
talent, collaboration between the HR and
marketing teams of an airport can be a
powerful tool. In fact, recent research
CONTINUED ON THE NEXT PAGE

26 ACI World Report July 2014


CONTINUED FROM THE PREVIOUS PAGE

indicates that some major non-aviation


companies are combining their HR and
marketing departments as they commit
to creating an industry-leading employer
brand. For airports specifically, the aim
should be to provide a stellar place to work
and let people know about the airport
organizations positive work culture.
A recent study from employer ranking site
Glassdoor reveals that reputation is key
when recruiting:
75% of hiring managers say that
reputation affects recruiting.
83% percent of job seekers are wary of
working for a company with a negative
reputation.
55% of job candidates say they would
reconsider their job application if the
company had negative press.
The notion that a candidate who did not
get the position at your airport is nothing
to worry about no longer works. HR
professionals, along with their colleagues in
other departments, should have a goal to
create fans, or airport brand ambassadors,
out of everyone with whom the organization
comes in contact.

When it comes to
attracting talent,
collaboration between the
HR and marketing teams
of an airport can be a
powerful tool.
One element in a wide range of
strategic HR tools
Going beyond visibility and reach, employer
branding also focuses on the candidate

experience and how it can reflect back on


the airport organization.
As HR professionals implement these
marketing tactics in their everyday
processes, they will find that the benefits
of strategic recruitment marketing prove
valuable. When the airports marketing and
HR work together, they can craft a cohesive
message and brand. Once established, they
can spread the word and attract candidates,
fans and customers.
With todays tools, HR professionals can
track their success with various outlets
and techniques, allowing each airport
organization to tailor their efforts to most
effectively reach their relevant audience. A
comprehensive employer branding strategy
requires considerable coordination between
the HR and marketing departments of an
airport, but the results are well worth it;
in the end, it is our people that make us
successful.

ICAO studies airport


community engagement
By Xavier Oh, Senior Manager, Environmental Protection, ACI World

Many airports have learned the advantages


of engaging with their communities,
whether through annual or environmental
reports, websites detailing sustainability
initiatives, public meetings or community
liaison groups. Indeed, airports are a vital
element of the communities in which they
operate and creating an open dialogue
benefits both parties, especially where
environmental initiatives are concerned.
This type of engagement may be related
to specific expansion projects or to provide
general operational information, and the
efforts might be required by regulation or
conducted on a voluntary basis. The airport
operator is usually the primary point of
contact, but other aviation stakeholders
airlines, ANSPs, pilots groups, the civil
aviation authority, governmental bodies,
individuals, community groups, and tourism
and environmental groupswill usually be
involved.
Whether related to expansion or ongoing
operations, environmental issues can
dominate the concerns of the community.
Noise is usually the most important issue
of concern for residents. Environmental
authorities are normally focused on local
air quality, the quality of water (especially
storm water flowing off the airport site),
and land and soil contamination. Other

issues generally of concern to locals can


include greenhouse gas emissions, ground
transport and traffic congestion, solid waste
management and recycling, safety and
security, habitat and wildlife, and heritage,
archaeological and cultural issues.
Increasingly, airports are recognizing
that they need permission to grow (PTG)
in order to address future demands for
air transport. This may be in the form of
a building consent for a new terminal,
but more often than not PTG from a
community might come in the form of
general community support, or even simply
an absence of complaint or opposition to
expansion proposals.
Earning PTG can be a long process.
The airport operator needs to establish
its sustainability credentialsnamely
sound track records on environmental
management, economic competence
and social responsibility. Community
engagement needs to occur at many
levels and the focus should be on keeping
stakeholders informed and maintaining
avenues for community members to
respond and feel engaged in decisionmaking processes. In short, the community
should be seen as an important partner in
any airports plans for the future.

ICAO focuses on helping airports


engage their communities
At its 9th meeting in 2013, ICAOs
Committee on Aviation Environmental
Protection (CAEP) agreed to a new work
item to develop a document on best
practice case studies and lessons learned to
assist States and the aviation industryin
particular airports, airlines and ANSPsto
engage local communities and address their
concerns regarding aircraft operational
noise and emissions, and aviation
operations in general.
A survey questionnaire has now been
launched to collect case studies on airport
community engagement. This survey
can be completed online at http://www.
surveygizmo.com/s3/1618400/CommunityEngagement-Survey. It can also be
downloaded, completed and submitted as a
Microsoft Word document by accessing the
same web page.
ACI member airports are now invited and
encouraged to submit case studies to
ICAO with a target completion date of 17
October 2014. Other aviation stakeholders
and interest groups, including community
groups and NGOs, are also invited to add to
the cases being collected.

The proposed ICAO circular on airport


community engagement will complement
ICAOs Guidance on the Balanced Approach
to Aircraft Noise Management. The manual
focuses of four pillars generally out of the
control of most airport operators: reduction
at source, land-use planning, operational
procedures and operating restrictions.
Data and case studies on community
engagement will assist airports and
aviation stakeholders when developing their
engagement strategies.
And of course, ACI will continue to work
in parallel with ICAO and other industry
stakeholders for the long-term benefit
of airports around the world. On the
environmental front specifically, the Airport
Carbon Accreditation initiative, originally
developed by ACI EUROPE, has expanded
to cover the Asia and Africa regions.
Additionally, ACERT, ACIs carbon emissions
tracking tool developed in cooperation
with Transport Canada, is available for
free to any airport looking to work toward
its Airport Carbon Accreditation certificate
or simply wishing to track and potentially
reduce carbon emissions.

ACI North America Chairman Reis


testifies before House Aviation
Subcommittee on airport financing
Charge (PFC) cap would only be an unnecessary
hit to airfare sales.
According to Reis testimony, PFCs are essential to
the necessary safety and structure improvements
that the average 40-year-old airport facilities in
the U.S. need to make the traveler experience
safer and less congestedand right now, the cap
established 14 years ago isnt cutting it.

ACI North America (ACI-NA) Board Chairman
Mark Reis, Managing Director of SeattleTacoma International Airport, made the
case for modernizing U.S. airport financing
during a hearing on 18 June before the
Aviation Subcommittee of the U.S. House of
Representatives Transportation and Infrastructure
Committeeand responded to claims from airline
representatives that raising the Passenger Facility

Airlines claimed that a raise will discourage


passengers from buying plane tickets, but did not
to acknowledge that they rely on the benefits of
the PFC as well. In fact, those dollars go towards
the very terminals the airlines use, Reis said on
behalf of ACI-NA.
Despite the fact that Seattle-Tacoma is a major
hub for one of the large U.S. airlines, Reis said
hes in favor of a higher PFC cap largely because
of the benefit to small airports that have to
greatly rely on federal grants. With the increased
funding from PFCs for large airport improvement
projects, more grant funding would be freed up
for smaller airports to allow them to compete for
more federal dollars.

Airports testify before U.S.


Congress on airport security
In the wake of the November 2013 shooting at
Los Angeles International Airport and recent
Transportation Security Administration (TSA)
reports of numerous firearms being discovered
in passengers carry-on bags, airport security
continues to be a critically important aspect of US
travel.
In late May, representatives of ACI North America
(ACI-NA) member airports testified on the
importance of airport securityand what the
federal government can do to aid airports in their
never-ending mission to enhance the safety and
security of airports.
Mike Landguth, President and CEO of RaleighDurham International (RDU), and Frank Capello,
Director of Security for Ft. Lauderdale Hollywood
International (FLL) and Second Vice Chair of the
ACI-NA Public Safety and Security Committee,
testified at the House Transportation Security
Subcommittee hearing, Lessons from the

LAX shooting: Airport and law enforcement


perspectives.
Landguth and Capello both stressed the unique
security situation and response plans at their
airportsand the collaborative relationships they
have with TSA and their local law enforcement
officials. Capello called for airports to develop
their own plans and have TSA review them,
and Landguth stressed that airport tenants
and passengers should be a key consideration
in emergency plans. Capello said the amount
airports are reimbursed for providing law
enforcement support of TSA screening operations
has decreased significantly over the last several
years, and Landguth stated that airports
responded aggressively to the LAX shooting and
leverage local/federal partnerships to enhance
security. Both also said that security is a primary
consideration when airports commence the facility
planning and design process.
