Why Attend

ACI-NA’s JumpStart Air Service Development Program is a “speed dating” program designed to bring airports and airlines together for brief introductory meetings.

Organized by Airports Council International-North America, a non-profit trade association, JumpStart stands apart from others as the most affordable event that brings airports and airlines together. It is also the event with the most career-enhancing educational programming.

Airports request a private, 20-minute meeting with up to 10 airlines. ACI-NA uses an online matching program to facilitate the scheduling of the airports and airlines that request meetings. With the assistance of the matching software, ACI-NA staff crafts a meeting schedule for each airport with airlines that want to meet them. In 2015, JumpStart connected airline route planners from 26 airlines at over 1,150 one-on-one meetings.
