Airports Authority of India (AAI) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to join ACI's Airport Excellence (APEX) in Safety programme.
As part of the MOU, ACI will provide assistance to AAI to improve safety performance through safety assessment and reviews, implementation of safety management systems, gap analysis, recommending solutions and designing action plans to enhance the level of safety at Indian Airports identified by AAI.
The MoU was signed at ACI Asia-Pacific region's annual Assembly, Conference & Exhibition in Singapore earlier today.
ACI World director general, Angela Gittens, said: "The signing of this Memorandum of Understanding with Airports Authority of India is a significant milestone for the community of airports.
"Our first APEX in Safety review was at Lomé-Tokoin Airport in Togo on 8 September 2011 and today, we have a partnership agreement with one of the largest airport authority in the world.
"They have committed to the mission of airports helping each other to make our industry safe. We look forward to joining up more safety partners as we extend ACI’s Airport Excellence in Safety programme to all airports that desire assistance.”
