Munich Airport (FMG) and Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) have signed a partnership agreement that will see both companies regularly exchange information and best practices.
Knowledge on areas such as customer service, quality management, consultancy project, commercial activities, IT systems, property development, staff development, airport security and environmental protection will be shared, and the companies will also organize an exchange program for staff and management that will help reinforce the cooperation agreement.
ACSA is the first African partner of FMG, which has similar agreements with airports in Nagoya, Japan; Beijing, China; Denver, USA; Singapore; and Thailand. ACSA operates nine international airports in South Africa, including Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. Like Munich Airport, ACSA is currently planning several projects to increase capacity.
“We’re delighted to have gained this strong partner on the African continent,” said Dr Michael Kerkloh, president and CEO of Munich Airport. “Our cooperation with ACSA will yield important knowledge and ideas on the airport business in Africa, and I’m confident that our partner will also benefit through the exchange visits to Munich.”
