Quito Airport upgrades to Level 3 Optimisation

November 14, 2018

Some 15 private companies connected to the aviation industry have pooled their environmental management experiences and commitments to create the first cluster to optimize their processes. Their aim is to reduce their carbon footprint and consolidate a sector that grows while respecting the planet. These efforts have been recognized by Airports Council International (ACI) which awarded Level 3 Optimisation certification to Mariscal Sucre International Airport, Quito (MSIA) for promoting this initiative.
