On July 8, Narita International Airport in Narita, Chiba Prefecture concluded a sister airport agreement with Airport of Thailand Public Company Limited (AOT), which is the operator of Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok.

By becoming sister airports, the two will aim for building a mutually cooperative relationship, continued development as international air transport hubs and expanding air transport networks connecting Northeast and Southeast Asia. They will also share information, hold regular conferences and promote joint programs to stimulate aviation demand in the hopes of making their airports more convenient and creating business.

In addition to Suvarnabhumi, AOT also manages and operates six airports in Thailand including Don Mueang and Chiang Mai. According to Narita International Airport, the two companies already had a very intimate relationship and agreed to build on it further for their mutual benefit when the two companies’ presidents met at a seminar held in Bangkok last year, thus resulting in the conclusion of the sister airport relationship.

This is the eighth such arrangement Narita has formed with foreign airport operating companies and airports. The others are with Korea Airport Corporation, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Frankfurt, Pulkovo Airport, Incheon International Airport Corporation (IAAC, June 2009), Abu Dhabi Airports Company and Beijing Capital International Airport.
