Supporting organisations for Routes Reconnected include IATA, ACI World and WTTC.
ACI pursues airports interests in discussions with international organisations. The most important relationship is with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), where international standards for air transport are debated and developed. ACI defends airports positions and develops standards and recommended practices in the areas of safety, security and environment initiatives. It also advances and protects airport interests in important policy changes on airport charges and regulation, strengthening the hand of airports in dealing with airlines.
At the same time, ACI provides the platform for pursuing a constructive and cooperative relationship with the airline associations, governments and regulators. On critical industry issues – liberalisation, ownership, capacity planning, regulatory restrictions, and environmental action – ACI defends airports views and strengthens their ability to shape the future of our industry, backing up individual airport actions.
