“We are proud to host this significant event in our beautiful ancient city of Muscat. We are honoured that airport officials from the Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Europe, and America come here to think outside the box to create an integrated working environment that aspires towards a bright future for the global aviation sector. Innovation has become a fundamental necessity, especially in the field of airports and travel. Our competitiveness prompts us to work towards improving the travel experience for millions of passengers who trust in our capabilities as airport operators. This gathering symbolises our shared commitment to leadership in a new era of innovative solutions, leading technologies, and cooperative strategies that will shape the future of airports worldwide,” says Sheikh Ayman bin Ahmed Al Hosni, Chair of ACI World Governing Board and CEO of Oman Airports, the host of Airports Innovate.

“Innovation is one of the three key strategic directions now followed by Europe’s airports, alongside Sustainability and Diversification. The future of the airport industry lies in the interplay of these three tenets, which are now driving and enabling our business transformation – towards a new airport value-creation model. So it is more than fitting that we join forces with our colleagues from ACI Asia-Pacific and Middle East and ACI World to take stock of where airports stand and chart the way forward on innovation. I look forward to all the insightful sessions ahead of us that will surely lead to heated discussions and the formation of innovative ideas,” says Olivier Jankovec, ACI Europe Director General.

‘Airports Innovate’ serves as a platform for game-changers, innovators, start-ups, and the brightest minds in technology to display their disruptive ideas and solutions, which have the potential to revolutionise the future of airports, adds the statement.
