With this strategic alliance, NIA aims to streamline its operations, provide real-time transparency of airport activities, and foster effective collaboration with its airport partners.

The primary objective of this collaboration is to establish a platform for collaborative decision-making, a crucial element in achieving operational efficiencies at NIA.
