The Aeropuertos Argentina 2000 chief will take over in 2020, the first Latin American ever to head the Council. Created in 1991, Airports Council International is an organization representing 641 members operating 1,593 airports in 176 countries.
Martín Eurnekian, the President of Aeropuertos Argentina 2000, will also be the President of ACI (Airports Council International) as from January 1, 2020 for the next two years until December 31, 2021. He will be formally appointed during the annual assembly of the Council in April, 2019.
The announcement was made at the annual assemblies of the ACI and the ACI- LAC (AC’s Latin American and Caribbean chapter) during 2018. It will be the first time the ACI has been headed by a representative of that region.
"According to all available projections, global air traffic will continue growing. This will improve connections between countries and regions, not only for transport but also the business world and the social sphere. At the international level the topics for discussion are similar to those we’re installing locally: seeking to improve passenger experience, adopting new technologies and the gap between the projected growth of traffic and the available infrastructure", pointed out Eurnekian.
"Infrastructure sets the framework for being able to develop services, to innovate and for passenger experience as a whole. In this aspect, we seek to raise the bar constantly. One of our main strategic objectives is a better experience for our clients. Modernising and improving the airports allows us to provide better service, generating more and better air connections and fulfilling our proposal to create the necessary conditions for developing the aviation business market,” added the President of Aeropuertos Argentina 2000.
