Airports Council International (ACI) World has emphasized the importance of collaboration among aviation stakeholders to address the challenge of accommodating future air service growth while remaining safe, secure, sustainable and customer-focused.

Delivering a keynote speech at the 4th World Aviation Conference hosted by Incheon International Airport, ACI World director general Angela Gittens spoke to aviation leaders on how strengthened collaboration can provide solutions to some of the most pressing challenges facing the aviation industry.

“According to the just-released ACI Annual World Airport Traffic Forecasts (2019–2040) global passenger traffic demand will double by 2037 based on a projected growth rate of 3.8% a year,” Gittens said. “The drivers of demand are there; the question is will we be able to accommodate the demand so we can deliver the socio-economic benefits of growth.”

Gittens highlighted the need to safeguard non-aeronautical (commercial) sources of revenue, secure infrastructure financing, increase efficiency via technological innovation, and the importance of fighting climate change via environmental stewardship.
