The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has reached an agreement with the Airports Authority of India (AAI) to train 4,000 officials to global standards in airport management. AAI is currently responsible for 18,000 members of staff across 125 airports.

R K Srivastava, chairman of AAI, said, “India is emerging as an important player, both as a growth market for international aviation and also in the community of key global aviation powers. Domestic aviation growth can also be orchestrated into a larger opportunity for the country.

“So, there is a need to address the training needs of AAI officials and to invest in creating and expanding the AAI’s pool of airport and air navigational services professionals. They will be well versed in the critical global aviation issues such as operations, safety, laws, economics and climate change, among others.”
