Congratulations Nandita Bhatt, IAP+, Airports Authority of India, Airport Director Maharana Pratap Airport, Udaipur, Rajasthan India.
We want to congratulate IAP Nandita Bhatt who was recently promoted to the position of Airport Director at Udaipur. This regional airport welcomed over 1.2 million passengers in 2019 and is a gateway for tourism in Rajasthan.
Nandita kindly provided us with some of her career highlights: “I joined AAI in 1996 as an architect, immediately after finishing my Post Graduation in Landscape Architecture. Over a decade later I had a breakthrough in my career; I was selected to enrol in the Global ACI-ICAO Airport Management Professional Accreditation Program (AMPAP). The modules and learning experience make this a 360-degree program and enabled me to be a more diversified and proficient airport professional.
“After earning my IAP, I had the privilege to continue the learning experience by shifting into training, working as a course developer at Indian Aviation Academy and creating training modules for AAI employees. I subsequently became a qualified Course Developer and Instructor through the ICAO TRAINAIR PLUS Programme.”
“As the saying goes: “TO MOST PEOPLE, THE SKY IS THE LIMIT. TO THOSE WHO LOVE AVIATION, THE SKY IS HOME.” I firmly believe there is truly no other place embodying so much love as an airport.”
Nandita’s achievements bear testament to the joint ACI-ICAO designation award she received in 2014. The Global ACI-ICAO Airport Management Professional Accreditation Programme (AMPAP) has to date welcomed approximately 25% female airport management executives, and counting, with roughly the same proportion who are graduates. AMPAP is available to airport management personnel and candidates must complete the 4 mandatory and 2 elective course curricula to receive the International Airport Professional (IAP) or AMPAP Associate designation and diploma. The AMPAP community is located across the globe in more than one hundred countries.
