Aviation human resources professionals are in
Tokyo this week for the ACI Asia Pacific HR Best Practice Seminar,
the first ACI human resources seminar in Japan.
The three-day seminar, hosted by Narita
International Airport Corporation, kicked off today in Tokyo,
Distinguish speakers are invited to attend the
seminar and will discuss along the theme "Delivering Sustainable
Airports through Creative HR", employee productivity & capability
building, corporate social responsibility and HR policy to address
the challenge of managing new generation.
Mrs. Patti Chau, Regional Director of ACI Asia
Pacific, said, “According to the Air
Transport Action Group, 58.1 million jobs worldwide are supported
by aviation and 8.7 million people work directly in the industry.
Globally some 5 million people work at airports. With passenger
traffic set to nearly double over the next 15 years, people - both
our employees and the passengers - need to be at the heart of any
initiative we undertake. ACI is taking a leading role in
developing a new generation of airport leaders in all functional
areas of airport business through its Global Training and Airport
Management Professional Accreditation Program (AMPAP) initiatives.”
The first ACI Asia-Pacific Human Resources Best
Practice Seminar was held in Seoul, Korea, in 2007 and since then
this has become an annual event held at various locations with
enormous support from the host airports, airport members and other
“In the next two days, we will dive into the theme ‘Delivering
Sustainable Airports through Creative HR’. Sustainability calls
for contributions from people across all functions of an
organization. I strongly believe that the HR management plays an
important role in leading the organization to develop and
implement sustainable strategies,” Ms. Chau added.
