ACI Policy Paper on Ground Handling
This policy paper consolidates ACI World’s policies regarding ground handling activities. It is centralised around three different key policy areas:
- Certification of GHSPs by State regulatory bodies based on industry operational standards and recommendations.
- Provision of a licence or concession to GHSPs by airport operators for operating on the airport.
- Safety oversight of GHSPs airport safety relevant activities by airport operators.
The policies and recommendations to ACI members established in this Policy Paper aim to improve the safety and regularity of airport operations, in particular as regards ground handling activities.
