Munich Airport will continue to supply its consultancy services to airports in the Arab states of the Persian Gulf through projects in Doha (Qatar) and Muscat and Salalah (Oman). On a visit by a delegation from Flughafen München GmbH (FMC), the operator for Munich Airport, the cornerstone was laid to continue and expand the cooperation with the partners in those states.
Summing up the results of the trip, FMC CEO Michael Kerkloh called it a major success: “To date, Munich Airport has successfully provided support in 25 airport projects on four continents. As emphatically demonstrated by the agreements we have now signed, our expertise will continue to be eagerly sought after in the future, in particular in the Arabian Gulf region.”
FMG has been active in Qatar since 2009, ensuring a smooth start to operations for Hamad International Airport in Doha. This involved organizing and coordinating 125 days of test operations prior to opening. FMG will continue to optimize operations at the airport and will help with preparations for the next phase of expansion. FMG consultants will also support the opening of the terminals at Muscat and Salalah airports, including the testing of the baggage handling systems. The group will provide training at both airports.
