Changi and Chongqing airports set for close collaboration following landmark partnership agreements – 17/12/09

SINGAPORE/CHINA. Changi Airport Group today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), establishing a collaborative airports arrangement with Chongqing Airport Group.

Chongqing Airport is a major air hub in China and one of China’s busiest airports.

The MOU paves the way for both parties to explore collaborations between the airports through joint projects and staff exchanges, on areas such as terminal management, route development and commercial management.

The MOU was signed in Chongqing, China this morning by Wong Woon Liong, Senior Director of the Changi Airport Advisory Group, and Chongqing Airport Group General Manager Zhao Jiang Ping. The signing was witnessed by Ms Tong Xiao Ping, Vice Mayor of Chongqing Municipal Government.

At the same time, following its first commercial consultancy, Changi Airports International (CAI), Changi Airport Group’s dedicated subsidiary for overseas ventures, has sealed two additional consultancy projects with Chongqing Airport Group for Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport.

The two projects cover a review of Chongqing Airport’s passenger transfer operations and proposed improvements to its retail environment.

CAI’s first commercial consultancy for Chongqing Airport Group was in 2008. That project saw CAI increasing the airport’s commercial space by +30%, thereby improving the revenue potential of Chongqing Airport.

With the latest projects, CAI said, it hopes to raise service standards at Chongqing Airport and optimise its commercial revenue and efficiency in line with the airport’s growth potential.

CAI Chief Executive Lee Seow Hiang said: “Amidst the increasingly competitive airport industry, this MOU will strengthen the relationship between Changi and Chongqing and sets the stage for closer collaboration to grow the two airports.

“We look forward to even closer partnership with Chongqing Airport for mutual benefit.”
