Airports, carriers must work together


The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has recommended that airports and airlines work together toward common goals if they are to meet the five per cent annual global connectivity goals the industry has set for itself, according to the Shipping Gazette.
Speaking to the Airports Council International conference in Istanbul, IATA director general Tony Tyler, former CEO of Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific Airways, said neither carriers nor airports can "afford poorly thought out expensive infrastructure development. To avoid this, we must work together in a collaborative process."
The UN' International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) has advanced principles of transparency, non-discrimination and safeguards on future infrastructure financing, and airports and airlines should work within that structure, Mr Tyler said.
Planners should focus on long-term sustainability and recognise that working together is in the best interests of airlines and airports. By working together, airports and airlines could find mutually beneficial efficiencies, remove capacity constraints, find new value-added opportunities, and engage in joint business development, he said.
"An agenda of cooperation does not mean that we will agree in every specific instance, but it does mean that we recognise we will achieve far more together than each could on our own," Mr Tyler said.
