Paris CDG Alliance lately met its counterparts Aerotropolis Atlanta Alliance (USA) on the one hand and the City of Vantaa (Finland) on the other hand in order to discuss about the economic situation observed within their respective airport locations in connection with Covid-19, but also to share the best practices applied in terms of employment and training. 

Paris CDG Alliance firstly interacted with the Aerotropolis Atlanta Alliance teams. Our American counterpart presented the impact of the health crisis on the Atlanta airport area and the actions they took and are currently still taking to deal with it. For example, in order to meet the need to maintain jobs, an online recruitment event was organized. More than 1000 participants were taking part in this event. 

Afterwards, Paris CDG Alliance met online the teams from the city of Vantaa who run the Helsinki Airport Area. This videoconference enabled everyone to share their findings following the crisis and present their respective projects in order to maintain jobs. The idea of ​​pooling job security programs was raised. 

On the strength of the inventories which were shared, future meetings are planned by the end of the year in order to go further in the reflections and study new areas of cooperation between these structures. Other similar bilateral meetings are planned with our partners from China by the end of the year.
