As part of the 30th ACI EUROPE Annual Assembly & Congress Event, the 16th ACI EUROPE Awards focused to reflect and recognised the many ways in which airports are not only surviving, but have innovated and inspired during the COVID-19 crisis.
The ACI EUROPE 2020 Awards recognise excellence and achievement across a whole range of disciplines including the Best Airport Awards (in size category), the Eco-Innovation Award, the Accessible Airport Award and the Digital Transformation Award. This year’s judging panel was drawn from a well-respected group of independent experts and key institutional stakeholders.
We are delighted to receive the 2020 World Business Partner Recognition Award. To70’s representatives have been playing an active role on the ACI EUROPE Technical, Operations and Safety Committee and the Environmental Strategy Committee. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, To70 actively contributed to several workstreams of the Off the Ground task force – including safety & airside operations, scheduling & capacity, climate change and local communities – and has been actively engaging with ACI EUROPE’s airport and WBP members, in order to help the industry rebuild.
‘I’m incredibly proud of the To70 team’s contribution to ACI EUROPE over the last couple of years, and in particular of the work carried out in response to the COVID-19 pandemic both in the ACI Off the Ground taskforce and well as for our airport clients globally. My compliments also go out to ACI EUROPE which continues to show strong leadership throughout the COVID-19 crisis. And we look forward to continue providing support to ACI EUROPE and its airport members in the years to come.’
