Aviator Airport Alliance, a full-range provider of aviation services at 15 airports across the Nordics and a family member of Avia Solutions Group, signed a partnership agreement with a new Norwegian airline Flyr for ground handling services.
Under the new partnership, Aviator Airport Alliance will provide Flyr with full passenger- and ramp-handling services, including de-icing, at all Norwegian airports where Aviator operates and Flyr has chosen as a destination: Bergen, Trondheim, Stavanger, Tromsø and Bodø.
Flyr is a new Norwegian airline that will take its first flight in June 2021. The airline will firstly offer flights between major cities in Norway and chosen international destinations in southern Europe.
Per Wassberg, managing director at Aviator, Norway commented on the new deal: “We are very excited and proud that the new, innovative and sustainability-focused airline Flyr has shown trust in our experience and expertise and has chosen Aviator as ground handling partner on all our stations in Norway where we are operating.
“This new agreement marks a beginning of a strong and successful partnership.”
Jo Alex Tanem, CEO of Aviator Airport, expressed the company’s delight in the development stating: “At Aviator, we are incredibly proud to have been chosen as Flyr’s partner at all airports we operate in Norway and we are very much looking forward to a close and good collaboration in the years ahead.
“Flyr looks at new, simple and innovative processes for its operations and our dialogue has been characterised by innovation and finding solutions, specifically aimed at Flyr and their business model.
“The first flight to Tromsø will be very well taken care of by our skilled co-workers, and from there on, this will be a very exciting journey with Flyr at all our airports.”
Bjørn Erik Barman-Jenssen, chief ground operations officer at Flyr, had this to say about the new partnership: “Throughout the whole RFP process, Aviator showed a willingness to work with us to take the airport experience to a new level, while being responsive and creative in their approach to our visions and goals.
“I am convinced that our colleagues in Aviator will do their outmost to ensure that our guests come on board smiling to our dedicated and service minded crew.
“I look forward to working with Aviator to further develop this partnership and create a new norm for a friendly airport experience.”
