Organisation

Airports Council International (ACI) is a not for profit organization representing the commercial airports worldwide. Its structure includes five geographical regions: Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and North America. This strategic plan is concerned with the African region.

ACI-Africa was established as a region of ACI in 1991, in conformity with ACI rules. The internal rules of the region were amended and updated 23rd ACI Africa Regional Annual General Meeting, Conference and Exhibition in Durban, in October 2014. ACI-Africa does not have a legal status separate from ACI to which organization the region is an integral part. However, as a region, ACI-Africa like the other ACI regions is self-governing under its own regional internal rules.  

Regional Secretariat

The Regional Secretariat is the administrative body whose main role is to give an efficient and effective administration to the organization. The Regional Secretariat is in charge of ensuring compliance to the internal rules; monitoring the decisions taken, work programs and activities ordered by the Regional Board and the Assembly. Additionally, it is responsible for the annual budget implementation. The Regional Secretariat works closely with the Executive Committee.

Executive Committee

The Executive Committee consists of seven (7) members as follows: the elected Chair and Vice-Chair of the ACI Africa Regional Board of Directors, a representative of each sub Region (not including the vice president sub region), and the Treasurer, named by the board.

The Executive Committee's mandate includes monitoring and co-ordinating the activities of the working groups; developing services to members; overseeing and monitoring the implementation of the ACI Africa Strategic Plan.

Regional Board 

The regional board comprises representatives of regular members and one business partner. The Board defines regional policies and reports to the regional assembly.

The regional board comprises a maximum of 15 representatives of the regular members of the region representing each sub-region as follows:

  • Northern Africa: 3 members
  • Western Africa: 3 members
  • Eastern Africa: 3 members
