MSY Aviation Director Appointed to North American Airports Council
NEW ORLEANS – This morning, Oct. 17, the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport announced that aviation director Kevin Dolliole was elected to an at-large position on the Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA) U.S. Policy Council, effective Jan. 1, 2019. The U.S. Policy Council is composed of 24 elected members that represent and advocate on the behalf of all U.S. airports, before Congress and other administrative bodies, that affect airports like the Department of Transportation (DOT), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
“I sincerely appreciate being elected by my peers to serve on ACI-NA’s U.S. Policy Council,” said Kevin Dolliole. “The opportunity to advocate on behalf of our nation’s airports is a great responsibility, and I look forward to working with my peers to improve the aviation industry through the Council.”
Dolliole will represent the New Orleans Airport and help establish policies around critical issues facing airports today, which is especially important as construction continues on New Orleans’ new, $1 billion airport terminal. Earlier this year, Dolliole was also appointed to the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) Policy Review Committee (PRC)—another organization that advocates on behalf of airports at the federal level.
With over 40 years of combined experience in the airline and airport industries, Dolliole has a wealth of aviation knowledge. He has served as director of airports at St. Louis Lambert International Airport and aviation director at San Antonio International Airport, and previously served in several executive positions at the New Orleans Airport including acting director of aviation before returning as director of aviation in 2017.
In addition to Dolliole, Rick Tucker of Huntsville International Airport was re-elected as chair of the U.S. Policy Council, and Paul Bradberry of Portland International Jetport was elected to an at-large position on the U.S. Policy Council.
