ACI World Governing Board calls for urgent COVID-19 industry relief
Resolution urges globally coordinated program of recovery measures
Airports Council International (ACI) World Governing Board has called for urgent relief measures for airports to assist in dealing with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and also urged a globally coordinated program of measures to aid in a balanced recovery for the aviation industry.
The resolution passed by the board calls for coordinated industry engagement between States, regulatory authorities, and all aviation stakeholders, to promote an internationally recognized framework for a sound, seamless and sustainable recovery.
The COVID-19 outbreak is a systemic crisis that has resulted in unprecedented disruption of global air transport. ACI World estimates a reduction of more than 4.6 billion passengers with a decline in total airport revenues on a global scale of more than $97 billion for 2020.
