The heads of the airports in Munich and Singapore have signed a cooperation agreement.

The pact, finalised at the 20th ACI World General Assembly, the annual conference of Airports Council International, will intensify the collaboration of these two major air transportation hubs.

With this agreement, Dr Michael Kerkloh, the Management Board spokesman and CEO of Munich Airport and his colleague Lee Seow Hiang, the CEO of Changi Airport Group, reaffirmed their plans for systematic expansion of the contacts between the two airports. The goal of the cooperation is to learn from one another and continue improving processes for customers by exchanging experiences on a regular basis.

Among the provisions of the agreement is a management exchange programme to allow managers of the airports to see the processes and structures of the partner airport for themselves. The two airport heads also agreed to meet at least once a year in the future to assess progress and coordinate further project stages.

Changi Airport is frequently voted the world’s best airport in global passenger surveys and Munich Airport frequently wins the title of Europe’s best airport.
