15 September 2014 Brisbane Airport (BNE) has become the first Australian airport to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Shanghai Airports Authority (SAA) in a partnership which will strengthen key relationships and boost aviation links between Australia and China.
The MOU, which was signed on Friday in a special ceremony in Shanghai attended by SAA President, Jing Yi Ming and Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) CEO and Managing Director, Julieanne Alroe, outlines the commitment of both parties to explore market demands, develop air route network, and provide quality services to customers. Julieanne Alroe said the agreement was endorsed at the most senior levels and will provide a framework for the development of stronger airport relationships that will enhance services for passengers. “The establishment of a friendly relationship with SAA is based on information sharing, personnel exchanges and working together on collaborative projects that will ultimately provide benefits to travellers in Shanghai and Brisbane.
“This will be achieved through sharing information in areas of airport planning and construction, safety of airport operation and management, information technology, customer services, air route development, as well as airport business development. “Collaboration to strengthen the air connections between the two airports, aiming at increasing passenger volume and freight throughput, will also be a key focus. “Importantly, we aim to establish Brisbane and Shanghai as the major gateways for services between China and Australia via this unique partnership,” Ms Alroe said.
Personnel exchanges will take place as part of the MOU with Senior Executives from SAA and BAC spending several months immersed in the respective airport’s operations to develop a better understanding of air policies, culture and business strategies. “The staff exchange is one of the most exciting aspects of the agreement as it provides hands on exposure to each airport’s operations that will be incredibly valuable,” Ms Alroe said.Brisbane Lord Mayor, Graham Quirk, welcomed the announcement, commending Brisbane Airport for its pro-active approach to strengthening ties with China.
“This Memorandum of Understanding will expand business opportunities between Brisbane and Shanghai and will promote Brisbane as Australia’s New World City in China,” Cr Quirk said. “As the Lord Mayor of Brisbane, I am committed to helping Brisbane businesses and the Brisbane economy grow and look forward to seeing this agreement benefit both Chinese and Brisbane businesses.”
