Munich Airport CEO elected new president of ACI Europe

Munich Airport CEO elected new president of ACI Europe

Munich Airport president and chief executive officer (CEO), Dr. Michael Kerkloh has been elected president of Airport Council International (ACI) Europe.

Dr. Kerkloh has served on the board of the airport trade association for many years, most recently as the organization’s first vice president.

ACI Europe represents the interests of more than 500 airports in 45 European countries.

Kerkloh says: “European airports face major challenges today. These include the escalating capacity crunch at the big European hubs, the steadily rising costs for aviation security, the structural transformation within the airline industry, and the need to cut emissions.

“These issues are at the top of the agenda, and cross-border cooperation among airports will play a key role in addressing them.”

Kerkloh recently completed a four-year term as president of the German Airports Association (ADV) and is a member of the executive committee of BDL, the German Aviation Industry Association (BDL).

He has been in charge at Munich Airport since September 2002, serving as FMG’s president and CEO as well as the company’s labour director.
