What is ACI?

The Airports Council International (ACI), created in 1991, is the international association of the world’s airports. It is a non-profit organisation, the prime purpose of which is to foster co-operation among its member airports and with other partners  in world aviation, including governmental, airline and aircraft manufacturing organisations.

Through this co-operation, ACI makes a significant contribution to providing the travelling and shipping public with an air transport system that is safe, secure, efficient and environmentally compatible

ACI has a membership of 580 members operating 1,630 airports in 179 countries and territories. Each edition of Airport World is mailed to ACI’s entire worldwide membership database. In addition, several thousand further names have been added to Airport World’s mailing list.

This excellent database has been compiled by ACI World for the exclusive use of Airport World. Airport World is distributed to a broad range of job titles within these airports, from CEO and General Managers to the heads of all operational divisions and departments, as well as all World Business Partners (WBPs) and Regional Associates.

Airport World also gives airports key access to airline management, which make up 10% of the magazine’s circulation.

In total, over 8,000 copies of each issue of Airport World are mailed to named individuals, with an extra 1,000+ copies being distributed to delegates at ACI Conferences and Exhibitions around the world.

Airport World is the only magazine that can guarantee that your message reaches the entire membership of ACI. This means you will be targeting airport management, World Business Partners, Regional Associates, as well as senior airline executives.

As the official ACI magazine, Airport World can provide exposure to delegates at all ACI World events through bonus distribution. By distributing the magazine at these important events, your message can be reinforced to all attendees.

If you are exhibiting it can support your presence, and if you can’t make it to the show your message is still there. Airport World’s reputation for excellent editorial ensures that the magazine is read and re-read, maximising your advertising exposure.

Airport World is now available as a digital magazine, allowing readers and advertisers to access the publication wherever they are, at any time…

The digital edition can be found on the Airport World website, on iPad and on smartphones.
