Australian Airports Association (AAA) chief executive Caroline Wilkie has welcomed the ongoing support of the corporate sector over the past 12 months.
The association, which represents about 260 airports around the country from the major international gateways to smaller rural airstrips, said on Wednesday it ended 2014/15 with 130 corporate members.
The AAA said corporate membership had grown 83 per cent over the past four years.
“Our corporate members are active participants in our industry working groups and state divisions,” Wilkie said in a statement.
“A strong corporate membership base provides our members with invaluable access to worldwide airport experience, technical capabilities and industry knowledge.”
The AAA national conference will be held in Hobart on October 12-16 and Wilkie said she was expecting a strong turnout from corporate exhibitors at the event.
“The exhibition area at recent AAA national conferences has been sold out and a highlight for conference participants, confirming that our airport operators and their business partners have a lot to talk about,” she said.
