The Airport Innovation Accelerator – established by the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) as a hub for innovation to drive creative approaches and build airports of the future – has selected Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport to receive the second annual Airport Innovation Award for its creative work to improve the passenger experience and deploy cutting-edge technologies. The award was presented to PHX officials yesterday at the 3rd Annual Airport Innovation Forum in Seattle.
“Airports are embracing innovation and deploying creative solutions like never before, and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport under the leadership of Director of Aviation Services Jim Bennett is a clear leader in the field,” AAAE President and CEO Todd Hauptli said. “The work that Jim and his team have done to enhance the passenger experience and streamline airport operations at PHX is remarkable, and AAAE and the Airport Innovation Accelerator are happy to recognize and celebrate their innovative approaches as a model for airports in the U.S. and around the globe.”
