Halifax Stanfield International Airport in Canada has signed a “sister agreement” with South Korea’s Incheon International Airport, which it hopes will lead to benefits and increased traffic for both gateways.
As part of the new co-operation agreement, the two airports will work together to develop passenger and cargo traffic between North East Asia and North America.
It also covers training issues; workshop and study visits; marketing collaboration; a staff exchange programme to facilitate the exchange of best practices and information; and joint work activities such as research in areas of mutual interest.
Halifax International Airport Authority’s president and CEO, Tom Ruth, enthuses: “The fact that for the last seven years Incheon and Halifax Stanfield have both led the world in ACI’s Airport Service Quality global customer service awards has created a common bond through our shared commitment to superior service.
“This agreement is a terrific opportunity for the airport and for Nova Scotia. Incheon is one of the largest, most progressive airports in the world, standing second globally in air cargo traffic and twelfth in the world in passenger numbers.”
