Leipzig/Halle Airport in Germany (pictured above) and Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport in the U.S. signed a cooperation arrangement to work more closely in the international airfreight market.

One of the central points in the future cooperation arrangement involves continually exchanging experiences and expertise. The cooperation deal also envisages an initiative for joint marketing operations.
