Airports Council International creates new safety position

Airports Council International (ACI) has established a new position in its Montreal ICAO liaison office, Senior Manager – Airport Safety and Operations. Joining ACI to fill the role is Paul Van den Eynden, who has held a variety of airport safety management roles in Canada.

In welcoming Paul to the ACI team, ACI Director of Safety and Technical Affairs, David Gamper said, “We are very pleased to have someone of Paul’s experience join ACI. He will help us further develop international best practice on safety management systems and procedures for airports, continuing the significant contributions he has already made as Vice-Chair of the ACI Operational Safety Subcommittee: one of his new roles will be secretary of the OSSC”.

Director General Robert J Aaronson said “Safety has always been, and remains, the number one priority for the aviation industry. Airports and our operational partners are committed to safe operations and ACI’s focus in this area, evidenced by this new appointment, reflects the importance we place on this issue. Paul will add also needed resources to ACI to liaise even more effectively with the International Civil Aviation Organization, where aviation safety issues are dealt with on a global basis. He will help ACI to rise to the opportunity offered by our recently-granted observer status on the Air Navigation Commission”

Paul Van den Eynden has already started with ACI. He joins ACI from the position of Director, Safety Management Systems at Calgary Airport Authority, where he has worked in various posts since 1991. Prior to that, he was employed by Transport Canada at Montreal Airport as Superintendent, Safety and Emergency Planning. He holds Canadian and Belgian nationality.
