Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) has signed a partnership agreement with leading air traffic management company NATS, which will provide a range of airport and air traffic services to support the growth of Brisbane Airport over the next 2.5 years.
Under the relationship agreement, NATS will provide BAC with consultancy services to support various projects currently being undertaken as part of its airport expansion Master Plan initiative, which includes the construction of a new parallel runway.
Ben Kiff, managing director, NATS Middle East and Asia Pacific, said, “We are really excited about being part of Brisbane Airport’s transformation and growth. With our experience and success working with airport operators across the world, and more recently in the Asia-Pacific, we believe we are in a good position to support the rapid growth and development of the airport infrastructure here in Australia.”
Floor Felten, general manager of strategic planning and development at Brisbane Airport, added, “We are delighted to be working with NATS at this critical time in Brisbane Airport’s history. NATS brings with them a wealth of experience, insight and expertise that we are confident will benefit our business and all airport users well into the future.”
Since 2012, BAC has invested more than A$1.7bn (US$1.2bn) in infrastructure projects and unveiled the expansion of the northern International Terminal and apron earlier this year.
