Avinor: air traffic control of two airports in Norway to Saerco
The Spanish company will commence operation from next year
Avinor’s board of directors has decided to award a 5-year contract for air traffic control services at Ålesund and Kristiansand airports to Spanish company Saerco. Four bidders took part in the competition, where quality and price had equal emphasis.
In accordance with the white paper from the Norwegian government, adopted by the Parliament in 2017, Avinor must put air traffic services out on tender.
Safety is fundamental to aviation, and it has therefore been important for Avinor to ensure that the high safety standards in Norway are extended when selecting a new operator.
Several of the bidders have submitted bids in terms of quality. This also applies to Avinor’s own subsidiary Avinor Flysikring AS, which took part in the competition.
Saerco, who currently operates control towers at several major airports in Spain, will commence operation of the control towers at Ålesund and Kristiansand airports from 1 March 2020.
