ACI Airport Finance Diploma

The ACI Airport Finance Diploma aims to provide participants a detailed understanding of the diversity of issues airports face in managing financial resources.

Airports generate their primary revenues through provision of aeronautical and non-aeronautical services. The effective management of such revenues form the basis for short-term operational expenditures, and longer-term capital investments. Accordingly, the Diploma programme will assist participants in understanding the role of airport owners and third-party investors in bridging cash-flows over the extended life of airport assets. Ultimately, the Diploma programme will prepare participants to understand how best to optimize revenue generating efforts, allocate related expenditures to ensure desired customer outcomes are achieved, and relations with both public and private investors in airports are well managed.
