Airport College International plants roots in Japan
Airport College International, a Finnish online training service for airlines, airport ground handling agents and logistics, has registered a subsidiary in Japan and opened a new office in Tokyo.
Through its website airportcollege.com, the company enables customers to train their staff efficiently and flexibly, and maintain competencies required by authorities. Airport College International is a strategic partner of the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
The news follows the announcement earlier this year that the company signed an agreement with Japanese logistics provider Yusen Logistics.
“Over the last few years, we have built closer relationships with our Japanese clients and now it’s time [to] have a stronger presence in Japan,” says Airport College International CEO Pertti Mero. “Launching a kabushiki kaisha [a Japanese company type often translated as limited company] in Japan offers us an opportunity to further strengthen our partnerships with our online services for recruitment, training and safety reporting.”
Airport College International has also joined the Finnish Chamber of Commerce in Japan.
