ACI World and the International Transport Forum (ITF) have exchanged Letters of Cooperation to increase collaboration between the two organisations.

The letter was signed at the Airports Council International (ACI) Latin America and Caribbean/World Annual General Assembly, Conference and Exhibition, and will allow ACI World and ITF to have a more structured cooperation on policy topics including economics, sustainability and capacity issues.

The collaboration will also include participation in each other’s events and committees related to economics and environmental protection; contribution by ACI World on aviation reports for ITF; and cooperation on other initiatives related to promoting the sustainable development of the air transport industry at a global level.

Luis Felipe de Oliveira, director general at ACI World, said: “Both organisations have distinct experience and expertise and by sharing it, we can go beyond anything we could achieve alone. I am therefore particularly grateful for this initiative at this opportune time, as we seek to bring the aviation industry back to full health and at the same time meet our collective and global responsibilities for a sustainable future.”
