The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Defence PSU Bharat Electronics Ltd (BEL), to collaborate in tapping emerging global opportunities in the airport business, including those in the Asia-Pacific region.

AAl, playing the role of a development partner, will assist BEL in its domain of expertise to enable execution of the prestigious MEA projects outside India by BEL.

The MoU was signed on Tuesday by Sanjai Kumar Singhal, General Manager (Business Development), AAI and Manoj Kumar, Executive Director (National Marketing), Regional Office-Delhi, BEL, at the AAI Corporate Headquarters, in the presence of Arvind Singh, Chairman, AAI; MV Gowtama, CMD, BEL; and senior Management of both the organisations through video conferencing.
