Auckland, Mumbai Airports Sign ‘Sistership’ MoU

Auckland Airport and Mumbai Airport have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will see them form a ‘sister airport’ relationship. The objectives of the sistership include increasing international air links and tourism between and beyond both airports’ respective countries. “With over 31,250 Indian visitor arrivals to New Zealand in the last 12 months, and over 80 per cent of these visitors entering through Auckland Airport, we consider India to be a very important market for us,” said Glenn Wedlock, Auckland Airport’s general manager aeronautical commercial. “Our Ambition 2020 strategy targets 69,000 Indian arrivals by 2020 which is equivalent to 14 per cent growth per annum over the next six years.”
