By Rachelle Harry

Linz Airport has collaborated with GrowNOW to launch the first German-speaking airfreight training academy, which will run courses from September 2020.

The academy will teach 13 different airfreight courses on topics including: basic knowledge, products, safety, sales and customer care, quality, handling, environment and process improvement.

Linz Airport said that students attending the academy will have the opportunity of getting to know the processes in airfreight “in a practical and direct manner” in the airfreight warehouse and handling areas.

Norbert Draskovits, managing director of Linz Airport, commented: “We are very happy about the cooperation in the training area with the GrowNOW Group and the decision to use the central location of Linz as a training center for the first German-language airfreight academy. This underscores the importance and competence of Linz Airport in terms of airfreight.

“Over the years we have developed into Austria’s largest, regional cargo airport and we score with our customers with flexibility and high service quality.”

Roland Zistler, managing director of GrowNOW Group, added: “We are proud to be able to offer our many years of experience in the development and teaching of airfreight training courses in German language to the entire German-speaking airfreight market.

“Linz Airport, in the best location between Munich and Vienna, with direct flight connections to Frankfurt and Düsseldorf, is the ideal place and the best partner for our air cargo academy.”
