The final word on the region’s 10th anniversary.
Over the past decade, ACI has played a fundamental role in bringing together the wider aviation community and promoting quality and excellence in airport management and operations. In doing so, ACI has also facilitated greater connectivity and co-operation between airports in Asia and the Middle East, and reflected the growing importance of the markets it covers across China, Australasia and the UAE.
Since the inception of our travel retail business in 1960, DFS has been committed to serving the global traveller and we continue to meet their evolving needs. As an active, long-term World Business Partner (WBP) member of ACI and vice chair of the ACI WBP Advisory Board, DFS values the opportunity to connect with key stakeholders and keep them informed about our business, as well as sharing knowledge, opportunities and developments across the industry.
DFS wishes the whole ACI team every success in supporting our common endeavour for many more years to come.
