Fraport Aviation Academy (AAC), which is operated by one of Fraport’s subsidiaries, Aerodrom Ljubljana, took part in the world’s leading trade fair for Security, Safety and Fire Protection, INTERSEC Dubai 2017. A wide range of AAC’s courses on protection, rescue and intervention in emergency situations were presented to more than 33,000 industry professionals from all over the world. Beside our partners and services we also promoted Slovenia - green destination with rich cultural and natural heritage.
“Aviation is one of the fastest growing industries in the world.
This rapid growth, which is reshaping the whole industry, is at the same time
opening up a lot of new business opportunities. New safety and security
standards are being implemented every day in order to ensure the protection of
health and to minimize the danger to life and property. For us, safety is the
most important aspect of aviation, so we have developed a large number of
rescue and firefighting training programmes, which we proudly presented at the
fair,” said the
Director of Fraport Aviation Academy, Thomas
Visitors to the fair were
extremely interested in AAC’s training services, which will in future be
implemented in collaboration with Fraport’s Fire Training Centre (FTC), the
Centre for Protection and Disaster Relief of the Republic of Slovenia, the
Faculty of Organizational Sciences of University of Maribor, and Slovenia Control. The names of these
partners reveal that the vision of AAC is not only to pass on knowledge, but
also to link the different fields of aviation into an integrated learning
concept, and therefore, in future, expand the scope of its services to other
fields, such as airlines, authorities and air traffic control. On the fair we
also promoted the services of our partners. New crisis management study options
were presented by associate professor, Vice-dean for International Cooperation at the Faculty of Organizational Sciences, University of Maribor, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Uroš Rajkovič, who attended the fair as well.
"In addition to our services
and partners we were also presenting Slovenia as an attractive tourist
destination. Slovenian Tourist Board has contributed several promotional materials, which helped us to acquaint our clients
with all the natural and cultural heritage sites Slovenia has to offer. Clients
from the Middle East were excited to hear about new destination they can
explore while attending one of our courses," explained Thomas Uihlein.
