AAAE/IAAE, Abu Dhabi Airports Company Team Up to Provide Enhanced Services for Middle East, Gulf Regions

ALEXANDRIA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE)/International Association of Airport Executives (IAAE) and the Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) have signed a memorandum of understanding to enhance aviation and training services, including the establishment of a regional training center in Abu Dhabi, for airport officials in the Middle East and Gulf regions.

The MOU calls for ADAC's Gulf Centre for Aviation Studies (GCAS) to be the region's exclusive learning center for AAAE/IAAE training programs, including the Accredited Airport Executive (A.A.E.) program. AAAE and ADAC also plan to work together on other initiatives, including aviation business development, conferences, training and research that will benefit the rapidly developing Middle East and Gulf regions.

“ADAC is a dynamic organization that is continuously developing and expanding its activities,” said ADAC Chairman Khalifa Mohamed Al Mazrouei. “Our policy has been to establish partnerships with the best-regarded aviation- and aerospace-related companies worldwide, as we endeavour to support the growth of Abu Dhabi’s economy and achieve excellence by raising the bar for airports everywhere. We are delighted to sign this agreement with AAAE and IAAE and look forward to working together for the benefit of our industry.”

"IAAE's goal is to help expand AAAE's reach to the global aviation industry and foster collaboration and information exchange between airport executives worldwide," said IAAE Chair Bonnie Allin, A.A.E., and president/CEO of the Tucson Airport Authority. "We look forward to creating a lasting, mutually beneficial relationship with the Abu Dhabi Airports Company."

ADAC operates five airports in the Emirate and is developing the Abu Dhabi Airport Logistics Park, which sits adjacent to Abu Dhabi International Airport, the primary entry point into the Emirate and growing civil aviation hub, and will provide a range of facilities for aviation-related businesses.

AAAE is the world's largest provider of interactive airport training and has spent years developing and refining various delivery methods for both federally mandated and value-added training. Hundreds of U.S. airports rely on AAAE's computer-based, Web-based and instructor-led training to meet federal requirements and conduct advanced training.
