CIAL pact with Fujairah Airport a boon to Aviation Academy in Kochi

In a first-of-its-kind of partnership among commercial airports, Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) has signed an Expression of Interest (EoI) with Fujairah Airport, Dubai.
Sources say CIAL Academy would be the biggest beneficiary. The aviation academy, started by CIAL last September, is now fully operational. The center offers Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Technology (M.Tech) and diploma courses in aviation business, fire and safety, airport infrastructure design and construction, operations, security and intelligence. The academy is part of CIAL’s ambitious Aerotropolis project, spread across 450 acres. “The new arrangement would enable those enrolled at the academy to get trained at Fujairah Airport. In addition, the best of the wards would also be absorbed at the Fujairah,” a source says. AVIATION WEEK has learned that the Kerala government has donated 5 acres of land to set up a sprawling new academy campus.
