IGI and Birmingham airport ink ‘Sister Airport Agreement’
With an aim to further strengthen trade and tourism links between the two cities, the Indira Gandhi International Airport (Delhi) and Birmingham Airport entered into an MoU called Sister Airport Agreement.
While 36 million passengers and over half a million ton of cargo pass through IGI Delhi annually, Birmingham Airport (UK) handles more than 9 million passengers a year and is the third largest airport outside of London.
What is the objective of Sister Airport Agreement?
The objective of this Sister Airport Agreement is to build mutually cooperative and rewarding relationships among progressive airports. It would help in the development of IGI Airport as an international air transport hub. It would also help expand air transport networks worldwide. This agreement makes perfect sense because of the strong ties already in place between the Midlands and India and would enhance links between Birmingham and Delhi and promote tourism and business opportunities on both sides.
