Thailand airports and Liege sign cargo agreement during Asia Air Cargo summit

Today 30th of January, Airports of Thailand and Liege Airport signed a Sistership Agreement between Liege Airport and Bangkok-Suvarnabhumi airport.

This Sistership Agreement between both airports, major cargo players in Asia and Europe, is a pledge to exchange expertise and knowhow, with focus on cargo development.

The signing ceremony took place at Asia Air Cargo Summit, where the international cargo community is gathering.

The Sistership Agreement is a first step towards a close cooperation between all the airports to develop cargo flows. A special focus is given to the development of perishable facilities and processes, to seamlessly connect the Asean and the European market in both directions.

For the development of an e-commerce gateway, Bangkok-Suvarnabhumi Airport and Liege Airport aim to create an international network of gateways. A lot of ideas are analysed to find the most efficient and strategic ones.
