Promoting Innovation

Promoting best practices and innovation is core to ACI-NA’s mission and we see great potential to provide our members with even more tools and resources to help them overcome the challenges of operating a modern and competitive airport. As we plan for the future, we are asking for your input on innovative ideas to solve the challenges airports face today and into the future.

ACI-NA has provided guidance (termed the “Rules of the Road”) for firms that seek to enter into a relationship with ACI-NA to help bring technological innovations, products or services to market that will provide a benefit to ACI-NA Members and their users (e.g., passengers, aeronautical users, etc.). This document contains general guidance on our process, and also a summary of how the process unfolded with respect to the two technology projects we have participated in to date: the Mobile Passport Control (MPC) app developed in conjunction with Airside Mobile, and the emerging CurbPing technology. 

ACI-NA remains committed to exploring opportunities to deliver solutions for members and we encourage our airports, WBPs and associates to contact ACI-NA staff with such ideas. The challenges of the future in our industry will require new approaches and ideas. ACI-NA is committed to helping our members succeed in meeting current and future challenges.
