The ACI-NA Commercial Management Committee is the forum for the discussion and development of policies and programs that relate to airport non-aeronautical revenue. The main non-aeronautical sources at airports are parking and airport access, in-terminal concessions, rental car operations, land rental, and advertising. Committee members focus on creative sources of non-aeronautical revenue and new ways to enhance and entice the airport experience of traveling passengers.

The Commercial Management Committee collaborates with various other ACI-NA committees with input regarding non-aeronautical revenue topics, and assists in coordination of selected initiatives. Annually, the committee completes the ACI-NA Concessions Benchmarking Survey that allows airports to evaluate best practices of airports based on similar size or geographic location. In addition, the leadership of the committee assists ACI-NA with the coordination of the annual ACI-NA Business of Airports Conference and the Excellence in Airport Concessions Awards.

The Commercial Management Committee has the following working groups:

  • Airport Best Practices Forum
  • Airports Only
  • Airport Innovation
  • Concessions Benchmarking
  • Parking & Ground Transportation
  • Stakeholder & Membership Engagement
