Aviato Academy is the epitome of a bottom-up organization. Our entire knowledge platform and all our trainings are based on the communities inside the Airport & Aviation Industry. But the real engines behind those communities are our partners. They offer invaluable help in centralizing and developing our communities by sharing their knowledge, their experts and their trainings.
The number of partnerships within Aviato Academy grows every day. It all started with a perfect constellation of these core partners: Air Cargo Belgium, ACI, Aviato vzw, Brussels Airport Company, IATA, Logos and VOKA.
Air Cargo Belgium
As the air cargo community representation, ACB (Air Cargo Belgium) strives to make BRUcargo the most attractive, efficient, innovative and successful logistical platform. On behalf of airlines, handlers, forwarders, the airport authority and other stakeholders, we set out strategic and ambitious goals for the development of air cargo.
Airports Council International (ACI) is the only global trade representative of the world’s airports. ACI represents airports interests with Governments and international organizations such as ICAO, develops standards, policies and recommended practices for airports, and provides information and training opportunities to raise standards around the world.
