What we do
Our vision is to bring together a region and an airport and to facilitate their interaction and cooperation on all levels, ranging from governance, economy, environment, urban planning and mobility, allowing them to work together to improve residents’ quality of life, to avoid, prevent, minimise and compensate the negative impacts of airport activities and providing its members with tools and knowledge to plan, invest, share and maximise the benefits of the aviation sector.
Our mission is to communicate and disseminate airport regions’ interests towards the European institutions and key airport and aviation stakeholders. We maintain solid relationships with several members of the European Parliament who care about the same goals and share the same vision. ARC is also present in numerous conferences and political forums where policy is being discussed together with the main aviation stakeholders. ARC is building a professional network and a platform to foster knowledge building and sharing. ARC helps its members to be updated with the state of art and to anticipate aviation changes by enabling fast and extensive access to research studies, EU projects, press releases, trainings and news on current issues.
Our values are quality of life of citizens neighbouring airports, the lowest possible impact on the environment, as well as economic growth of airport regions.
ARC supports its Members in different ways such as by looking for projects, getting direct contacts with EU institutions, organising events related to airport and aviation, gathering specific information on their issues of interest, promoting contacts with numerous stakeholders.
