Cork to host ACI 2017

Cork Airport has been chosen to host the ACI Europe Regional Airports Forum next May following a bidding competition.

The announcement was made at the 2016 conference in Vilnius last week.

The facility has also been shortlisted again for the ACI Europe Best Airport Awards. Managing director Niall MacCarthy said: “We are very excited to have secured this important aviation conference next year and to be shortlisted for these prestigious aviation awards again. 

“By bringing delegates from across Europe to south Ireland, we have a great opportunity to show what the region has to offer and create more business links.”

Next year will be the 10th year of ACI Europe’s conference and exhibition dedicated to regional airports. Hundreds of delegates are expected travel from across Europe to attend.

The forum is designed to provide a platform for regional airports to exchange knowledge, share best practice and discuss issues of common interest.

Cork Airport was named in 2015 in the top three in the ACI Europe awards for facilities, retail, security, community relations, customer service and environmental awareness and operations.

MacCarthy added: “We were the best in the world in 2013 in our category and we’re hoping to be best again in 2016.”
