Airport Services Association (ASA)https://www.asaworld.aero/
ASA is the internationally recognised trade association for the independent ground and air cargo handling industry. We represent the men and women that are responsible for ensuring the safety and comfort of billions of travellers worldwide. We collaborate with affiliate associations to advance the sector’s interests and influence decision-makers on issues that are relevant to our industry. Born in 1974 as the Independent Aviation Handlers Association (IAHA), focusing on European airport and ground handling related issues, ASA has since grown to become the global representative of the independent ground and air cargo handling industry. Here at ASA we are working constantly to strengthen the reputation of the industry and advance the interests of our members and our sector in an increasingly complex aviation landscape. The ground handling workforce currently accounts for 1.6 million employees worldwide and this figure is expected to increase by at least 20% by 2022. The numbers point to a highly successful, fast-growing sector, and yet the independent ground handling industry faces major challenges – from staff recruitment and retention to the emergence of new technologies. ASA unites members to provide a platform where our independent companies can drive change, influence the industry and promote safety and quality at our airports.
