12-14 June 2017 // Paris, France
The ACI EUROPE Best Airport Awards are presented to airports for excellence and achievement across a whole range of disciplines including:
The Best Airport Awards 2017 ceremony will also include the presentation of the 8th ACI EUROPE Eco-Innovation Awards, in association with Airport Carbon Accreditation. This award will not be limited to any particular traffic category and will presented to the airport that has demonstrated outstanding environmental performance and, in particular, an innovative approach to environmental management.
The award will be assessed on a range of criteria including:
The ACI EUROPE Leadership and Human Resources Forum, established in 2013, wishes to recognise individuals who have demonstrated excellent leadership and human resources management among the ACI EUROPE Regular Members. The objective of this new annual award is to give exposure to excellence that will help the airport community better assess and implement the new procedures and skills needed to develop the industry’s workforce, looking at the various challenges facing HR Directors and airport leaders, such as mobility, succession planning, training, well-being and digitalization. HR management is increasingly involved in the strategic development of an airport, and contributes to the social and economic fabric of the airport community.
Please note that these criteria are only a guide. Candidate airports do not have to address each of them individually. It is recommended that candidate airports provide information to support the arguments, for example, evidence of best practice developments or testimonial from employees and industry partners. The application should provide an analysis of why and how the individual candidate or executive has contributed to successful HR management, with the objective of sharing this expertise with the ACI EUROPE community. The proposed recognition criteria are as follows:
The judging panel will include the Chair, the Vice-Chair and the immediate past Chair of the ACI EUROPE Leadership and Human Resources Forum, as well as some recognized industry HR specialists from different ACI Regions.
The Best Airport Awards 2017 ceremony will also include the presentation of the 2nd Accessible Airport Award, in association with the European Disability Forum.
Airports are a crucial part of the travel chain for all passengers, including passengers with disabilities. The level of accessibility of the airport as well as the range and the quality of the assistance services offered make a huge difference to the travel experience, both for experienced and inexperienced travellers.
The Accessible Airport Award is an opportunity to showcase good practice examples and get recognition for the work that has already been done in certain airports, while encouraging other airports to do the same. It is also useful to raise awareness of problems that passengers with disabilities still face regularly when travelling and which sometimes can be easily solved.
