DFW International Airport Allies With Taiwan's Taoyuan International

New 'Sister Airport Alliance' Pact Outlines Collaborative Cooperation And Information Sharing Between Major Airports

Dallas/Fort Worth (KDFW) International Airport officials joined with leaders of Taoyuan International Airport (TPE), the largest airport in Taiwan, in signing an alliance agreement designed to allow the two airports to work in close cooperation. The DFW-TIA Airport Alliance outlines the principles on which the two airports will work collaboratively on business and operational projects. DFW and Taoyuan airports will jointly promote direct passenger service between Dallas/Fort Worth and Taiwan, and will share information and best practices in areas ranging from sustainability to customer service, engineering, airport amenities and airfield operations.

"This agreement marks a significant milestone for DFW Airport as we strive to maintain and improve our position as one of the world's most highly regarded airports," said Jeff Fegan, CEO for DFW International Airport. "We have a lot to gain and a lot to share with our new partners from Taoyuan International Airport, and we look forward to a future of mutual cooperation."

"Through this kind of airport alliance platform, we will learn more from each other," said Samuel Lin, CEO of Taoyuan International Airport. "We will ensure that Taoyuan Airport would continuously grow and upgrade in respect of service quality and service efficiency to all our airline clients."

Mr. Fegan and Mr. Lin signed the Memorandum of Understanding today at Taoyuan International Airport headquarters near Taipei. The sister airport agreement extends the business relationship between Taiwan and the Dallas/Fort Worth area, which includes a sister city alliance forged five years ago.

"Today we bring together two like-spirited airports, with a passion for excellence," said Robert Hseuh, a member of the DFW Airport Board of Directors. "The Sister Airport relationship demonstrates the shared commitment to excellence DFW and TIA each show in customer service, operations, safety, technology and air service development. And the sharing of best practices in airport management adds value to our mission of connecting the world."

Taoyuan is the busiest international gateway in Taiwan and serves as a hub for China Airlines as well as EVA Air. It serves about 25 million passengers annually and ranks 15th in the world for air cargo.
