  • Actively promote awareness and look for opportunities to bring new airports and airlines to join the Airport Corner (e.g. presentations to external/internal target groups, airports visit, promotional leaflets/videos, etc).
  • Enhance and expand the use of the Airport Corner information by internal/external users (e.g. new target user groups).
  • Contribute to projects and working groups aiming the delivery of future services (e.g. AOP/NOP evolutions, SESAR projects, iNM).
