Airport operator Fraport has inaugurated a €6 million training centre at its Aviation Academy at Ljubljana Airport (IATA: LJU) in Slovenia. Fraport says the facility will allow it to expand its international training activities to meet the growing demand from external and the internal customers – particularly in the areas of firefighting, emergency services, crisis management and ground handling.
Established in 2016, the Academy expects to receive more than 500 participants at the training centre this year.
Michael Müller, Fraport AG’s executive board member and executive director, labour relations, commented: “More than ever, the aviation industry needs skilled staff to meet air traffic growth and other challenges. Our new Fraport Aviation Academy Training Centre takes us to the next level in delivering professional training to external clients as well as our Group employees worldwide.”
