“The AAA connects us to the greater aviation industry. We see the AAA as a strategic partner on our airport management team in terms of advocacy, lobbying and facilitation. The key benefit of the AAA for Karratha Airport is that they engage for us at all levels of Government and other organisations offering comprehensible representation.


The AAA also provides possibilities for professional development and networking with airports across the country. The AAA is a vehicle for members to be interconnected and for airport professionals to learn from and support one another to sustain and continually improve our industry. We need a leading advocate to prosecute appropriate national policy relating to airport activities; the AAA provides that voice to the benefit of all airports.”
