Who We Are

The Association of Airport Internal Auditors (AAIA) was created in the Spring of 1989 to specifically address the unique needs of airport auditors around the world. We all face auditing the same common airport operations: parking systems, airlines, rental cars, and other concessions. What we have done is pool our resources and experiences to make us all more effective and efficient.

In over 30 years, our membership has grown to represent more than 60 airport members from across the globe, including places such as Kenya, Hong Kong, Canada, and the United States.  With over 250 registrants, the AAIA has more than 100 Certified Public Accountants and 80 Certified Internal Auditors.

We have also hosted 30 consecutive conferences, where our members network with other airport internal auditors, learn from industry exports, and earn valuable NASBA approved CPE credits at a low cost.

The AAIA is a non-profit organization that is led by the President and elected officers: Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer.  In addition, there is a Conference Chair, CPE Coordinator, and IT Coordinator.  The Board of Directors includes the officers, coordinators, conference chair, and six additional directors.  Positions are for 2 year terms.

What We Do

  • Establish and develop an interchange of information and experience in auditing airport operations.
  • Foster, promote, and assist the growth of professional skills among the association members.
  • Promote airport operational efficiency by encouraging airport management to develop and apply modern techniques to airport management.
  • Cooperate with other groups working for the benefit of aviation.
