Changi Airport Group and Narita International Airport Corporation have signed a memorandum of understanding to intensify collaboration between the two major air transportation hubs.
The agreement was signed by Lee Seow Hiang, chief executive of Changi Airport and Kosaburo Morinaka, president of Narita, at the 7th Airports Council International Asia Pacific Regional Assembly held in Singapore last week.
The deal reaffirms the strategic relationship between the two airports to develop and expand the global air transport network, and provide high quality services to the users of both Changi and Narita Airport.
The provisions of the agreement allow for information exchange to facilitate the managers of both airports to learn from each other the operations and processes of the partner airport.
There will also be regular meetings between the two airports to exchange and share experiences as well as the possibility of joint projects aimed at improving the network between them.
Prior to the agreement, CAG and NAA have already been regularly sending staff on study trips to each other’s airports.
The signing of the MoU is particularly important in view of the high volume of traffic between Changi and Narita airports and the opportunity to cooperate with a major transportation hub outside of each other’s region.
Changi Airport is considered the World’s Leading Airport by the World Travel Awards.
