Description
ACI-NA’s JumpStart Air Service Development Program is a “speed dating” program designed to bring airports and airlines together for brief introductory meetings. Organized by Airports Council International-North America, a non-profit trade association, JumpStart stands apart from others as the most affordable event that brings airports and airlines together. It is also the event with the most career-enhancing educational programming. Airports request a private, 20-minute meeting with up to 10 airlines. ACI-NA this year will again be using an online matching program to facilitate the scheduling of the airports and airlines that request meetings. The airlines also make their own wish lists of communities they would like to meet. With the assistance of the matching software, ACI-NA staff crafts a meeting schedule for each airport with airlines that want to meet them. In 2014, JumpStart connected airline route planners from 21 airlines at over 1000 one-on-one meetings.
