“AAA is extremely proud of the appointment and the important role that Angeline Flemming will be playing on behalf of our airport, to further promote safe and sustainable travel and other important aviation initiatives in the Latin America and Caribbean region. With her industry knowledge and vast experience, I am confident that Angeline will capably represent Aruba and the direct region’s interests in the ACI-LAC Board”, said Joost Meijs, CEO of AAA.
Angeline Flemming looks forward to contributing to the ACI-LAC Board, comprised of knowledgeable and experienced Airport leaders. “I see this as a great opportunity for our island to have a voice in regional developments and initiatives. But also, to learn from other Airports in the region and to tackle issues of mutual concern, like connectivity, workforce challenges, technological developments, and climate resilience. The LAC region has seen the most traffic growth post-covid, and this highlights even more the importance of operational efficiencies and collaboration. I am particularly honored and excited to be part of a historic Board composition, on January 1, 2024, for the first time in history, of the twenty board directors of the ACI-LAC Board, five are female Aviation leaders, including the Board President Monika Infante, CEO of AERODOM.”
