ACI World has celebrated the Airport Excellence’s (APEX) 200th review, at Bahrain International Airport, marking a historic milestone in the program’s mission of raising aviation standards globally.

According to a press release by the body, since 2011, the ACI World APEX program has provided comprehensive onsite airport reviews led by industry peers and experts to optimize airport operations, regulatory compliance, and aviation standards worldwide.

APEX is based on International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards, international regulations, and ACI best practices and offers reviews on four priority areas: security, cybersecurity, safety, and environment.

Our flagship program will without a doubt continue to be instrumental in fostering excellence in airport security, cybersecurity, safety, and sustainability around the world. We thank every APEX Assessor—aviation professionals that help conduct reviews, mentor team members, and share knowledge and industry best practices to improve the sector.”

Mohamed Yousif Al Binfalah, CEO of Bahrain Airport Company said: “We are delighted to continue our collaboration with Airport Council International (ACI) World through the APEX program which will provide us with invaluable insights and recommendations to enhance our security, cybersecurity, safety, and environmental practices. Bahrain Airport Company partnered with ACI World for an APEX review in 2017 to enhance our Aerodrome Safety and Airside operations practices, and today this collaboration aims to optimize our operations and incorporate International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards and recommended practices, driving continuous improvement in our overall airport performance. At Bahrain Airport Company, we remain committed to providing a world-class airport experience for our passengers and stakeholders, and this milestone not only reinforces our position as a leading airport in the region but also inspires us to continually raise the bar and set new benchmarks in the aviation industry.”

In October 2023, ACI World launched the newest addition to the program—APEX in Cybersecurity. The review serves as a starting point for assessing cybersecurity practices at airports and is designed to assist airports in undertaking a comprehensive evaluation of their cybersecurity landscape.
