National Airport Industry Awards Update

The National Airport Industry Awards will return in 2021. Further details will be released soon.

AAA National Airport Industry Awards

The COVID-19 outbreak is having an extreme and unprecedented impact on the airport and aviation industry at a scale that was almost unthinkable just a few short months ago. Just as you are doing your very best to weather this once in a century event, the AAA is changing how we operate so we can continue to meet your needs as we adapt to the Government’s new travel and social distancing requirements.

With existing restrictions likely to be in place for at least six months, and the very limited ability for industry to participate in this type of event, the AAA has made the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s National Airport Industry Awards.

We will provide information regarding the 2021 National Airport Industry Awards as soon as we can. If you have any questions regarding the 2020 or 2021 National Conferences please email [email protected].
