On March 29, Narita International Airport in Narita, Chiba Prefecture concluded a sister airport agreement with the Abu Dhabi Airport Company (ADAC) in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

With the opening of a Narita-Abu Dhabi route by the UAE’s Etihad Airways on March 28, the two airport terminal operators took the opportunity to form a cooperative business relationship. They will try to create mutual, sustainable development as gateway airports representing their respective countries by building an air traffic network connecting Japan and the Middle East and by promoting friendly relations between the two airports.

The sister airport relationship will promote the flow of people and goods through business and tourism in each airport’s target market and allow for the exchange of expert advice, knowhow and other information on issues related to airport operation and administration, which will be reflected in their work and services. Narita and the ADAC will also hold joint conferences and build programs that will tie into “the creation of mutually profitable business.”

Narita already has sister airport relationships with five other airport operators and airports abroad: Korea Airports Corporation, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Frankfurt Airport, Pulkovo Airport in St. Petersburg and the Incheon International Airport Corporation.
