  •  Signing demonstrates closeness of ties between Abu Dhabi and Beijing
  •  Agreement facilitates exchange of best practices and enables future collaboration
 
 
Dubai, United Arab Emirates - October 12, 2019:   In the presence of His Excellency Sheikh Mohammad Bin Hamad Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, Chairman of Abu Dhabi Airports, Bryan Thompson, Chief Executive Officer of Abu Dhabi Airports, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Yao Yabo, President of Beijing Daxing International Airport (BDIA), establishing a framework for the sharing of best practices and the exploration of potential opportunities for future collaboration. The MoU was signed at the BDIA Management Center in Beijing, China on October 10, 2019.
 
The signing of the memorandum follows the opening of the Beijing Daxing International Airport last month, and ahead of the opening of the Midfield Terminal at Abu Dhabi International Airport. Both parties agreed to establish mechanisms for interactive contact and the exchange of knowledge and best practices, alongside sharing ideas on developing their airports and advancing the wider aviation industry for the benefit of passengers and visitors from around the world.
H.E. Sheikh Mohammad Bin Hamad Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan was present at the signing of the MoU, along with, H.E. Tareq Abdul Raheem Al Hosani, Vice Chairman of Abu Dhabi Airports, Tony Douglas, Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Aviation Group, and Ahmed Al Qubaisi, Senior Vice President, Government, International and Communications of Etihad Aviation Group. 
 
Speaking after the signing, Bryan Thompson commented, “The signing of this MoU with Beijing Daxing International Airport is a source of pride and delight for those of us at Abu Dhabi Airports. This agreement is the result of the close social and economic ties between the UAE and China, and we look forward to working with our Chinese colleagues to enhance our partnership at all levels.”
 
“We are the first airport to sign an agreement with Beijing Daxing International Airport, highlighting Abu Dhabi International Airport's status as a regional aviation hub and commitment to collaborating with partners from across the globe.”
 
Bryan Thompson, CEO of Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “The Chinese tourism and business market is important to the economy of Abu Dhabi and the wider UAE. Abu Dhabi is a popular destination for Chinese travellers, and tourist numbers are continuing to increase year on year.”
 
“We have enjoyed an already close relationship with the Chinese airport sector, signing a sister airport MoU with Beijing Capital International Airport in 2017. Through that relationship, we have exchanged best practices and information on the operation and management of airport infrastructure, and we look forward to continuing that partnership over the coming years with Beijing Daxing International Airport,” concluded Thompson.
 
Speaking in the signing, Yao Yabo commented, “On September 25th of 2019, the Chinese President XI Jinping officially announced the opening of Beijing Daxing International Airport. We believe on the basis of long-term and win-win cooperation with Abu Dhabi Airport, the two sides will jointly make more contributions to China's civil aviation and world's civil aviation.”
