Dolliole will now have another significant leadership role in the organization as they establish policies around critical issues facing airports today. He also currently serves on the American Association of Airport Executives’ (AAAE) Policy Review Committee—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.
