Chinese carrier Air China and airport operators Fraport and Beijing Capital International Airport Company Limited (BCIA) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the expansion of flight frequencies between the two hubs of Beijing International Airport in China and Frankfurt Airport in Germany.
In addition to coordinating communications and marketing activities, the MoU will focus on developing special customized airport services at the representative airports for passengers of both countries.
Winfried Hartmann, senior vice president of sales and customer service, Fraport, said, “This cooperation agreement underscores the growing importance of Frankfurt as a preferred gateway to Germany and Europe for Chinese leisure and business travelers. 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.
“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. We look forward to future cooperation with our partners in China.”
