The move follows the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in China yesterday between airport operators Fraport and Beijing Capital International Airport Co Ltd and the Chinese airline.
In addition to co-ordinating communications and marketing activities, the MoU will focus on developing special customised airport services at the representative airports for passengers of both countries.
Speaking at the MoU ceremony Fraport AG’s senior vice president of sales and customer service, Winfried Hartmann, said: “This co-operation agreement underscores the growing importance of Frankfurt as a preferred gateway to Germany and Europe for Chinese leisure and business travellers.
"In the future, we will be able to expand traffic connections to and from China which is vital for Germany’s export economy and tourism industry.
"At the same time, both airports will be able to match their service offerings to the specialized needs and wishes of passengers at the corresponding airports.”
Earlier this year Fraport started co-operating with the VIP Service company of Beijing Capital International Airport to enhance the travel process by offering jointly standardised product offerings at both airports.
“The choice of Frankfurt as the first European airport for this type of cooperation can be attributed to the excellent facilities and processes for transfer passengers and the large number of flight connections available at the Frankfurt hub," stressed Hartmann.
"We look forward to future co-operation with our partners in China."
