According to CAI, the MOU will facilitate collaboration between the parties in the areas of airport planning and design, and operation and management of the airports under the Hunan Airport Management Group.
The Hunan group owns and manages five airports and serves as a custodian to two other airports within the Hunan province in South Central China.
The airport's include the fast growing Changsha Huanghua International Airport.
The first project under the partnership will look at strengthening Changsha Huanghua International Airport’s overall passenger experience by enhancing its commercial layout, passenger flow and service quality.
Customised training programmes and knowledge sharing platforms, targeted at mid to senior level management as well as airport professionals, will also be developed to build a talent pipeline.
CAI, the international investment, management and consulting arm of Singapore's Changi Airport Group, has extensive experience in China, having acted as a consultant to 20 Chinese airports in areas such as airport operations, passenger flow, commercial layout and development, and service quality.
It also shares its airport expertise and know-hows through structured study tours, and provides specialised training to Chinese aviation personnel through the China-Singapore Airport Management Academy (CSAMA).
