International Association of Airport Executives

In the early 1990s, major global barriers around the world were dissolving. To effectively address the challenges of managing airports in a global economy, there was a need for advanced airport management education and professional development around the world. To respond to that need, AAAE’s commitment to professional excellence and the AAAE accreditation program went international through the creation of the International Association of Airport Executives (IAAE) in 1992.

The International Association of Airport Executives provides international access to the benefits of AAAE.  IAAE members are eligible to apply for the Certified Member (C.M.) and Accredited Airport Executive (A.A.E.) programs.

There are three categories of IAAE members:

  • IAAE Affiliate – Any individual with responsibility for the management or staff functions of a public airport.
  • IAAE Associate – Any individual not otherwise qualified for membership, who has a business or professional interest in airports and aviation.
  • IAAE Corporate – Public or private companies and corporations, engaged in activities related to aviation.

IAAE members enjoy a wide range of member benefits and rewards, including:

  • Networking Opportunities
  • Career Development Opportunities
  • Vital Industry Information
  • Training Opportunities
  • Membership Rewards
