Peter – Coordination Manager
Please describe your role in ACL.
“I had been coordinating both Dubai airports for over 3 years, but currently I’m managing Dublin and Cork airports’ slot coordination. “
What does a typical day look like to you?
“No two days are the same, and no two airports are the same either. Apart from the day-to-day coordination work, I’m dealing with internal and external customers (airlines’ scheduling teams, airports’ capacity teams, regulatory bodies, etc.), preparing reports and analysis on various subjects.”
What’s your favourite part about working here?
“Working for ACL sounds like a normal 9 to 5 office job, but in reality it’s a unique place to work with great values and ethics, where everyone is encouraged to take on different responsibilities outside their regular daily jobs. I thoroughly enjoy working on different projects that improve the company’s efficiency and contribute to my development.”
Describe a memorable time at ACL
“I’ve learnt invaluable lessons during the preparation of the Dubai International Airport’s runway rehabilitation project. Of course there are many other unforgettable moments, from trips to conferences far away (seaplane tour over Vancouver springs to mind) to great company events (Ascot racecourse, Windsor Duck Tour, climbing the O2, treasure hunt in London), all memorable moments with great people around.”
Do you have any advice for a new starter?
“Don’t be afraid to ask questions and participate in as many projects as you can. “
