An agreement has been signed between AAI (airports authority of India) and IATA (international air transport association) for imparting training to 4,000 AAI officials in world class airport management.  AAI has more than 18,000 staffers on its rolls and 125 airports under its management. The Geneva-based IATA is a trade association of the world’s airlines.

Chairman RK Srivastava of AAI says India is emerging as an important player- both as a growth market for international aviation and also a key player in the community of key global aviation powers, adding the domestic aviation growth can be orchestrated into a larger opportunity for the country.

”There is a need to address the training needs of AAI officials and to invest in creating and expanding its pool of airport and air navigational services professionals who are well versed with the critical global aviation issues such as operations, safety, laws, economics and climate change, among others, “ he said.

With the increase in air traffic, the airport and air space infrastructure capacity has increased manifold and this requires a constant upgradation of skills of these officials, he said.
