Airports Council International’s (ACI) African Board of Directors and Work Group Meetings will be hosted by TAV Tunisie, a subsidiary of TAV Airports, a global brand in airport operations. The goal of this forum is to provide a platform for sharing experience between members. The agenda for the meeting, to be held between the 16th and 20th of April, includes aviation security, economy, environmental issues and human resources policies. TAV Airports operates the Monastir and Enfidha Airports in Tunisia.

TAV Airports Director of North Africa Haluk Bilgi said, “We are very pleased to be doing the honors for such an important meeting in Tunisia, a country we, as TAV Airports, consider a significant region where we operate two airports. As a member of ACI, the largest platform for airport operators, we are creating opportunities to share and expand our experience in all areas of airport operations, from security and IT to ground services and operation of commercial areas. Offering service at international standards in all regions it operates, TAV Airports uses this experience to make Tunisia a major hub connecting Africa to other continents.”

The Africa branch of ACI was established in 1991. Developing alternative policies in the aviation industry for states and governments whilst aiming to share and expand efficient practices, ACI Africa has 59 members including TAV Tunisie. TAV Airports operates two airports in Tunisia; Monastir Airport, which was credited as the best airport in Africa in 2010, and Enfidha Airport, which features modern architecture and the most advanced technologies.
