Building bridges for aviation best practices
By John McCullough

Hartsfield-Jackson’s longtime partnership with CIFAL, an organization designed to promote the exchange of best practices in aviation, continued with the Airport’s participation in CIFAL’s Airport Management and Economic Development Conference: Africa.

The program in September gave Africa’s aviation leaders an opportunity to discuss approaches to customer service, safety and security, cargo handling and information technology.

Alrene Barr, Hartsfield-Jackson’s interim director of Marketing and Business Development, represented the Airport at the conference in Abuja, Nigeria.

“This conference also provided an opportunity to strengthen Atlanta’s relationship with the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria,” Barr said. “Hartsfield-Jackson is metro Atlanta’s front door to the world, and I am proud to play a part in reinforcing channels for knowledge-sharing among airports worldwide.”

Thirty-six high-ranking aviation officials, representing 48 airports in 18 countries, attended this CIFAL program.

CIFAL, an affiliate of the United Nations, was created to provide government authorities and leaders of countries in the Western Hemisphere with a forum to exchange strategies, tools and best practices on issues of technology, economic development and civil rights.

Atlanta is one of 12 cities worldwide with a CIFAL office. The training center is part of the U.N. Institute for Training and Research. CIFAL stands for Centre International de Formation des Acteurs Locaux (loosely translated: International Center of Training of the Local Actors).
