If your specific field of assistance is not listed above, kindly send your request to ACI Africa below.  We will endeavor to develop such assistance mission for you.

After the internal approval process and budgetary considerations, ACI Africa will provide the selected assistance mission free of charge to a member airport except for the costs of the airfare and accommodation for the expert on site, which have to be borne by the member airport.

If ACI Africa is not in a position to provide the requested area of expertise internally, then it may have recourse to the services of one of its recognized business partners. In this case, the assistance mission will be provided by ACI Africa in partnership with the business partner at cost.

Request for Assistance Mission

Request for an assistance mission has to be made officially by the Authorised Representative of the airport to the Secretary General of ACI Africa.

Please send by email the duly filled online form with the official signature of the Authorised Representative of the airport at:
