Airports Council International publishes Airport Business Continuity Management Handbook
The Airports Council International (ACI) has issued their first Airport Business Continuity Handbook. The ACI is a global trade representative of the world's airport authorities. Established in 1991, ACI represents airports' interests with governments and international organizations, develops standards, policies and recommended practices for airports, and it provides information and training opportunities to raise the standards around the world. It aims to provide the public a safe, secure, efficient and an environmentally responsible air transport system.
According to ACI the Airport Business Continuity Management Handbook is intended to equip airport authorities (operators and/or owners) to develop appropriate plans that take account of a wide range of possible events, to enable them prepare and cope with a disruption, and to return to normal operations as soon as possible, making full use of business continuity planning. This guidance document provides factual information and effective management tools to ensure that airports can maintain the flow of passengers and goods, enable the delivery of services to customers, sustain commercial revenue streams and protect their infrastructure.
