An airport in Thailand has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with HKIA Consultancy as the Thai airport looks to become a major international hub.
Under the MoU’s framework, HKIA Consultancy will advise U-Tapao International Aviation or UTA on matters related to airport planning, operations, smart technology and commercial development.
The move is part of the development project of U-Tapao International Airport and Eastern Airport City near Bangkok, which is positioned to become a logistics hub and strategically located in a free-trade zone with multimodal transport connections.
Hong Kong airport will share knowledge and experience in management and technology with UTA, and service in the capacity of a consultant for various projects under the MoU. Top delegates from UTA visited Hong Kong airport in late-December last year to observe the current development of the air hub, including a site visit at cargo terminal Hactl.
