Brussels Airport Company (BAC) and Changi Airport Group (CAG) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to partner on a variety of cargo projects.

The partnership will see both airports take on initiatives covering pharmaceutical logistics and undertake studies and trials in the fields of digitalisation and sustainability, as well as exchange best practices.

One of the projects both airports will be involved in is a Green Air Pharma Corridor study, undertaken together with other Pharma.Aero members, to establish a green lane with a set of sustainability standards to be achieved throughout the supply chain.

“We are happy to sign this Memorandum of Understanding with Changi Airport and to further enhance our longstanding partnership. By exchanging expertise and building on our alliance to tackle the challenges and opportunities of today together, we can leverage the best practices and become more interconnected between our hubs,” said Geert Aerts, chief cargo and real estate officer at BAC.

Lim Ching Kiat, executive vice president of air hub and cargo development of CAG, added: “The industry has witnessed how the Covid-19 pandemic has transformed the air cargo supply chain.

“More than ever, handling capabilities are key to the competitiveness of the air cargo ecosystem. As CAG pushes forward with our digitalisation efforts to enhance Changi Airport’s air cargo processes for higher handling efficiency, we look forward to exchanging insights and learning from Brussels Airport and Air Cargo Belgium.”

The two airports pointed out that they have collaborated on various projects since 2016 such as the co-founding of Pharma.Aero with Miami International Airport.

“Where Changi Airport has extensive experience and expertise in the operations and management of airports in Singapore and overseas, Brussels Airport offers a well-established passenger network and unique cargo platform (BRUcargo) with strong community-driven expertise in handling pharmaceuticals and life sciences, perishables, e-commerce and live animals,” the partners said.
