Our Story


Fraport AG is among the leading groups of companies in the international airport business. The company operates one of the world's most important air transportation hubs at Frankfurt Airport, along with other airports worldwide. This successful airport management is based on many years of extensive experience in the field of airside and terminal management, ORAT (Operational Readiness and Airport Transfer), airport strategy, retail management, the operation of airport infrastructure, and airport development. Furthermore, we  have sound expertise in the area of ground handling.

Fraport Group, one of the world's leading airport management groups, fully believes and invests in the training of its staff and its subsidiaries in all fields of aviation. Expert knowledge and consistent performance can only be achieved by a long-term commitment to quality training. For this reason, the Aviation Academy (AAC) is being established at one of Fraport AG's subsidiaries, Fraport Slovenija (ex. Aerodrom Ljubljana), which has received the mandate to operate the new Academy to meet training requirements within the Fraport Group, as well as from external customers. 

As one of the world’s leading airport management groups, Fraport depends on highly skilled staff at our airports around the globe to maintain high operating standards, deliver top customer-focused services, and to address the rapid changes that characterize today’s aviation industry. The creation of the Fraport Aviation Academy as a new Centre of Excellence and Learning underscores Fraport’s commitment to enhancing Ljubljana as a sustainable location. Diversifying non-aeronautical businesses is a key element of Fraport’s strategy for its airport portfolio. We want to harness the inherent synergies available at Ljubljana Airport, which has developed its own significant know-how as a full-service airport company in operations, handling, and emergency services. Furthermore, the Ljubljana region is the perfect location for us to develop innovative world-class solutions in aviation training.


The vision of the Aviation Academy is to be the leading skills academy in the worldwide aviation industry. Not only do we want to pass on knowledge, but also to link different areas of aviation into an integrated learning concept, and therefore, in the future, expand the scope of services to other fields, such as airlines, authorities and air traffic control.


The mission of the Aviation Academy is to raise the professionalism of managers and accountable staff through quality training and education.
