Airports Authority of India (AAI), a Miniratna PSU, and the French Civil Aviation Authority have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to strengthen technical cooperation programme between the two countries.

The agreement is aimed at facilitating exchanges of officials, sharing of technical know-how and long-term enhancement of skills and expertise.
 
The agreement was inked in the presence of civil aviation minister, P Ashok Gajapathi Raju and French minister of state for transport, marine affairs and fisheries Alain Vidalies.
 
Originally initiated in 2010, the renewal of the Indo-French cooperation agreement under this MoU holds significance because of booming aviation industry in India and the need of a highly skilled workforce. A number of teams from India have already visited Toulouse and Paris, in France, under this technical cooperation programme.
