On March 6 Fraport inaugurated a €6m training centre for the Fraport Aviation Academy at Ljubljana airport in Slovenia.

This new training facility will allow the Fraport Group to expand its international training activities to meet the growing demand from external and the internal customers, particularly in the areas of firefighting, emergency services, crisis management and ground handling. Established in 2016, the Academy is now well positioned to serve the international training market and expects to receive more than 500 participants at the training centre during 2019. The Fraport Aviation Academy Training Centre features almost 1,500 square metres of space for classrooms, simulators and other specialised equipment in addition to outdoor areas for “live” practical training. This will also increase training offerings for staff of the Fraport Group, which is now active at some 30 airports around the globe.

“More than ever, the aviation industry needs skilled staff to meet air traffic growth and other challenges. Our new Fraport Aviation Academy Training Centre takes us to the next level in delivering professional training to external clients as well as our Group employees worldwide,” stated Michael Müller, Fraport’s executive board member and Executive Director Labour Relations.
