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
"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.
