The CEO of Athens International Airport, Dr. Yiannis Paraschis, was unanimously elected President of ACI Europe, the “voice of Europe’s airports”, representing the interests of some 400 airports in 45 countries, which account for over 90% of commercial air traffic in Europe.



The new President’s election was held within the framework of the 17th ACI EUROPE Annual Assembly, in Zurich.



Speaking after his election, Dr. Paraschis stated: “I am both flattered and delighted to have been unanimously elected ACI EUROPE’s President. It reflects the international recognition of Athens International Airport and it is a significant distinction for the Greek air transport sector”.



“At a time which is so critical to the aviation industry and the airports sector within that,” stressed Dr. Paraschis.

“I look forward to tackling, on a European level, the challenges we are facing such as capacity and financing, security, and the environment. As European legislators are bringing more and more challenges to our sector, it is more than ever relevant for ACI EUROPE to further strengthen its network across regional, local and national level throughout the Europe, particularly in the new accession countries, and use our clear advantage of being part of a global organisation to act in an integrated manner.”



“I am fully confident”, Dr. Paraschis continued, “that with the experience and expertise of the ACI EUROPE team and the support of the ACI EUROPE Board, which is more active than ever, we will meet these challenges head-on.”



Dr. Paraschis is also a Member of the ACI World Governing Board, representing the interests of 1,530 airports in 176 countries internationally.
