SITA renews its support for AMPAP

Montreal, April 6, 2021 – AMPAP acknowledges SITA for its unwavering support in renewing its
Premier Sponsor status.

SITA, the world’s leading IT provider to the air transport industry, recently reaffirmed its unwavering support for AMPAP,
despite turbulent economic times. The Global ACI-ICAO Airport Management Professional Accreditation Programme
(AMPAP) is a joint initiative of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the Airports Council International (ACI).

David Lavorel, CEO SITA AIRPORTS & BORDERS, said: “SITA’s mission includes being an active community partner for key
programs such as AMPAP, so we are proud to continue the relationship with ACI, ICAO and ASI. In addition to investing in the
next generation of talent to ensure that the aviation industry recovers stronger, the AMPAP program has proven to be an
important part of our own employees’ career development. They have gained invaluable knowledge about airports and key
stakeholders, as well as making new connections with other participants around the globe.”

ACI World Director General, Luis Felipe de Oliveira commented: “We have appreciated the close support that SITA has
provided to AMPAP since the programme was launched in 2007. In this time, the programme has benefitted more than 1,100
participants. This is a testament to the ongoing commitment to support this important programme and for the development
of the industry, especially as we confront these unprecedented times and plan for recovery. We are grateful to SITA for this
partnership which allows us to enhance the AMPAP experience for the world’s airport management professionals.”

ICAO’s Technical Cooperation Bureau (TCB) Director and AMPAP Team Leader, Mr. Jorge Vargas also noted: “The airport of
the future, even after the pandemic is behind us, will face public attitudes and management priorities which will take us far
beyond the boundaries of traditional airport management. SITA’s support, for which we are grateful, enables AMPAP to better
assist the current and next generation of airport professionals who shall be leading an industry that is rapidly and continuously
evolving.”

Dr. Pierre Coutu, the AMPAP Administrator, added: “The world and our industry have experienced immense challenges and
fallout over the past 12 months forcing everyone to revisit their business models. SITA’s undisputable support is validation of
the value of the executive competency development AMPAP provides through a unique curriculum and we take pride in
knowing that airport management professionals located across the globe who have benefitted from the Programme are now
key contributors that airport enterprises are already relying on, to build back better.”
The executive development that AMPAP provides covers all the functional areas of the airport business and promotes
adherence to uniform industry standards and best recommended practices. It is available only to airport management
professionals and industry stakeholders. Graduates receive the ACI-ICAO award of the International Airport Professional (IAP)
or AMPAP Associate diploma and designation.
