The Abu Dhabi event will welcome more than 1,000 delegates for a broad conference agenda covering sustainability, mobility and technology.

“I’m honoured and delighted to be appointed on the ACI board and look forward to working with other regions to promote the aviation industry’s interests,” Thompson said. “Ultimately, this  appointment is a recognition of Abu Dhabi government’s efforts to promote aviation as a key facet of the UAE’s future economy, clearly demonstrated by its investment into the Midfield Terminal Building, which will set the benchmark for airports for the next 20 years.”
