Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA), which represents the owners and operators of airports throughout the United States, today issued a statement in remembrance of those who lost their lives or were injured in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
Statement of ACI-NA President Greg Principato:
“Airports and the entire aviation industry were profoundly changed by the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001; it was a tragic day many of us will never forget. We recognize and honor those who lost their lives, loved ones or were injured in the terrorist attacks as a victim or a responder,” said Greg Principato, president, Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA). “In the last 10 years airports have worked to significantly improve aviation security. ACI-NA and airports across the country will continue to work with TSA to advance processes, procedures and technologies that not only enhance security but also improve the travel experience and increase efficiency.”
Principato concluded, “We will forever remember 9/11 but will move forward with confidence, never letting the terrorists think for a minute that they can deter North Americans from shaping our own future.”
