Munich and Moscow Domodedovo airports are forging closer ties after Dr Dmitriy Kamenshchik, Chairman of the Board Moscow Domodedovo Airport Group and Dr Michael Kerkloh, the President and CEO of Munich Airport, signed a cooperation agreement. The airports say their partnership aims to provide a systematic knowledge transfer for employees and managers on both sides. It will include such activities as exchange programmes that will give employees an up-close look at the daily workings and processes of the partner airport. The “sister airport agreement”, as it is known, also calls for an intensive exchange of ideas with regard to terminal planning, IT, real estate development, security and digitalisation.
Munich Airport CEO, Dr Michael Kerkloh, commented: “Munich and Moscow is a partnership between equals. The continuous interactions with our sister airports in America, Asia and Africa help us to maintain and improve on our high-quality standards. That makes it an even greater pleasure for me to welcome our first sister airport in Eastern Europe.” Moscow-Domodedovo joins Denver, Nagoya, Airports of Thailand, Singapore, Beijing and Airports Company South Africa as Munich’s seventh sister airport.
