Mr Ad Rutten, the Chief Operating Officer of Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, was elected President of ACI Europe during its June annual assembly held in Manchester.  At the event, Mr Rutten said: “I am delighted to take up the role – these are critical times for the European airport industry, with an increasing array of challenges: from the immediate and brutal impact of the crisis, to ever-increasing environmental concerns, from the long-term alarm bells of the airport capacity crunch to the constant burden of the aviation security regime.  Building on the progress of the last few years, I look forward to ensuring that the voice of European airports is heard loud and clear by the new European Parliament and the new European Commission taking up office later this year.”
