Aviation services provider Aviator Airport Alliance has secured a contract to undertake de-icing services for Norwegian, a Norway-based airline.
The three-year de-icing contract is effective from 22 September 2021.
Aviator will be responsible for providing de-icing services for Norwegian’s aircraft in Bergen (BGO), Bodø (BOO), Bardufoss (BDU), Tromsø (TOS) and Trondheim (TRD) Airports in Norway.
Aviator said that the de-icing services will ensure safe flights during the harsh winter seasons for the Norwegian aircraft.
Norwegian operations executive vice-president Adrian Dunne said: “We are very pleased to have entered into a de-icing contract with Aviator for these domestic Norwegian destinations where Aviator already handles our traffic.
“De-icing is a vital safety requirement during the Nordic winter months, and Aviator will contribute to ensuring that our aircraft are ready for on-time departures.”
Norwegian operates a short-haul network across the Nordics and to key European destinations.
Aviator is engaged in providing ground handling services ranging from passenger and baggage handling, de-icing, full-freight handling and cargo, station services, including airport security and the Nordic Dino aircraft washing robot.
Earlier this year, Norway-based airline Flyr signed a partnership agreement with Aviator Airport Alliance for ground handling services.
The agreement offers Flyr access to Aviator’s range of passenger and ramp-handling services, including de-icing, at all Norwegian airports where Aviator operates.
Aviator agreed to provide the services at carrier’s destinations including Trondheim, Bergen, Stavanger, Tromsø and Bodø.
