The special handover ceremony at the close of ACI Airport Exchange 2018 saw Mohammed Al Katheeri, SVP Strategy and Communications at Abu Dhabi Airports officially receive the hosting rights and responsibilities to Abu Dhabi Airports.
Bringing together 1,500 airport leaders and hundreds of speakers, the ACI Airport Exchange is a major annual event that is hosted by airport groups around the world, with Abu Dhabi Airports being selected to host the November 2019 edition.
Hosting the event in the nation’s capital falls in line with Abu Dhabi Plan and UAE Centennial 2071. The announcement also follows Abu Dhabi Airports’ reception of a series of awards from the Airports Council International.
In December 2017, ACI named Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) the world’s fastest growing airport in hub connectivity. AUH also received Gold Certificate Recognition from ACI Asia-Pacific, and an accreditation level of ‘Reduction’ from its Airport Carbon Accreditation program.
Airport Council International is the world’s only global trade representative of the world’s airport authorities.
