The Middle East Aerospace Consortium (“MEAC”) announces today that voting has officially opened for the first annual Emerging Market Airports (“EMA”) Awards, to be held on April 26th 2010 in Dubai.

Organised by Arabian Reach, in conjunction with the MEAC, Fujairah International Airport, Tiger profiles and Airport Show, the EMA Awards will honour excellence in 23 categories of airport operations.  The awards will recognise the talented work of professionals from emerging markets in the Middle East, Africa, India, Russia and Eastern Europe.  In total, the Awards Office received over 10,000 nominations, which have been narrowed down to a shortlist of 95 nominees. 

John Ellis, CEO of MEAC commented:

“The level of industry participation has been phenomenal.  There is no question that the last two years have been quite turbulent for the global industry but going by the overwhelming nominations, we are sure that this much anticipated event will help the industry look forward to a better financial year.”
Raj Menon, Head of Business Development at Arabian Reach added:

“Every entry was adequately supported by factual arguments, evidence of best practice developments, financial results and testimonials from partners/clients across each area.  The panel members then looked for evidence in each area which could be included in the entry appendices.

“Arabian Reach was particularly interested to hear of best practices with regards to recognising, addressing and reducing an airport’s environmental impact and has received numerous nominations in this category.”
