c) On 23rd July 2018 Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) celebrated its jubilee anniversary of 25 years. ACSA was established on the 23rd of July 1993, when the government established it as a fully-fledged Stated-Owned Company. Prior to 1993, the airports operator was a unit within the National Department of Transport.
ACSA has grown into an airports authority that manages a network of nine world class airports that South Africa can be extremely proud of. The company currently employs approximately 3000 permanent employees, contributed R9,5 Billion to the economy in financial year 2017 while supporting 14 950 jobs that resulted in R2,8 Billion of worker income in the country.
ACSA Airports have also, over the years, consistently improved their world rankings and won prestigious industry awards. Cape Town International Airport and O.R Tambo International Airport are currently ranked 21st and 32nd respectively on the Skytrax top 100 airports globally.
Based on all these achievements, the company made a resolution to host the 25th anniversary with the sole purpose of appreciating and thanking key stakeholders and partners.
The objective of the gala dinner was to recognize and acknowledge the support the company has enjoyed from key stakeholders over the quarter century. ACSA stakeholders include amongst others, all tiers and spheres of government, shareholders, regulators, airlines, bankers, investors, retailers, concessionaires, clients to name but a few.
