is a great concept. These attractive cards will excite our all passengers, particularly young travelers, and expose them to what airports do for airplanes and their communities.
At the ACI Convention, ACI-NA President and CEO Kevin M. Burke said “I am always encouraged when our members are eager to tell their stories and educate the public about the significant contributions they make to their local communities.” Specifically the trading cards will include geographic information, facts, figures and historical information unique to each airport. They will be distributed by the airports at their facilities, tourism events and educational forums.
The launch offering includes 15 US and 2 Canadian airports:
- Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport (Louisiana)
- Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (Ohio)
- Edmonton International Airport (Alberta)
- General Mitchell International Airport (Wisconsin)
- Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (Georgia)
- Kelowna International Airport (British Columbia)
- Lambert-St. Louis International Airport (Missouri)
- Mineta San José International Airport (California)
- Nashville International Airport (Tennessee)
- Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport (Ontario)
- Pittsburgh International Airport (Pennsylvania)
- Salt Lake City International Airport (Utah)
- San Antonio International Airport (Texas)
- San Diego International Airport (California)
- Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (Georgia)
- Stinson Municipal Airport (Texas)
- Winnipeg Richardson International Airport (Manitoba)
It is a fun concept. Will the rules require a passenger to travel to the airport to get the card and encourage travel? Do you get extra points if the Airport Director signs your card? Will there be special issue cards, like after the Xth million passenger is boarded or after the opening a runway? The potential marketing opportunities will demonstrate the creativity of the airports PR Directors.
It is very likely to hear some day some kids offering two SAVs for one ATL or vice versa. Great idea ACI!
