Airport Risk Index (ARI)

The Airport Risk Community (ARC) has worked with the Centre for Risk Studies at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, a long term Willis Research Network partner, to develop the Airport Risk Index (ARI), a risk profiling framework for airports.

ARI offers airports the ability to interrogate their existing and future assumptions on risk exposure. It combines historical and predictive analysis, to determine the levels of probability and impact of operational disruption on an airport’s profitability.

In developing ARI, 110 airports were chosen representing both the largest commercial airports and also the importance of interconnectivity across the globe, and 19 threats for their potential to cause high-impact events that could shut down an airport for extended periods or prolonged disruption.

ARI helps airports to see how they compare to best practice, and in doing so, see where they need to improve and where often limited risk management resources are best applied. For more information regarding the wider benefits of this framework in your airport’s resilience planning, please contact us.
