Chief Executive Officer of Prague Airport, Vaclav Rehor, was elected a member of the Board of Directors of the Airports Council International Europe (ACI Europe), a worldwide airport association. During his three-year term of office, he will represent the region of Eastern Europe and thus gain the opportunity to positively influence the shape of air transport in Europe. The election of new members to the Board of Directors, the supreme body of ACI Europe, took place on 17 November 2020. In total, ACI Europe associates over 500 airports and heliports from 45 European countries.
The Board of Directors is the highest decision-making body of ACI Europe. It approves key resolutions and recommendations, affecting air traffic rules and airport operations across Europe. The association focuses its initiatives on several areas, such as security, market liberalization, slot coordination and air transport. It is also active in the field of sustainable development, digitalization and customer experience. ACI Europe as well actively participates in transnational legislative and regulatory processes and serves as a platform for sharing the experience with and providing expertise to institutions in the field of aviation and beyond. It also makes recommendations to the European Commission and works closely with aviation organizations, namely the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Eurocontrol.
Alongside Václav Řehoř, Prague Airport will have another representation in the ACI Europe institutions. Libor Kurzweil, Director of Quality Management, Safety and Process Management at Prague Airport, was appointed Vice-Chairman of the ACI Technical, Operational and Safety Committee based on his success in a tender.
