ACI would expand its activities in Montréal to develop its Airport Excellence (APEX) Programme.The expansion will create nine permanent jobs and economic spin-offs of $1.7 million a year.
"Our relocation to Montréal in 2011 facilitated a closer alignment with the International Civil Aviation Organization and other aviation industry stakeholders based here in Montréal. We increased the quality and range of services to our members particularly with the APEX in Safety programme, which was launched in September 2012. APEX has attracted a great deal of interest and we have entered into agreements with several international ACI member airports. The city has everything our organization needs to grow, so the decision to expand our facilities was a logical one," said Angela Gittens, Director General of Airports Council International (ACI).
