Aviation services provider Aviator Airport Alliance has secured a five-year contract from Lufthansa Group for ground handling and de-icing/anti-icing services.

Under the agreement, Aviator will provide the services at Stockholm-Arlanda Airport to Deutsche Lufthansa, Swiss International Air Lines, and Austrian Airlines, which are airlines under the Lufthansa Group.

Lufthansa Group Northern Central Europa regional manager Sven Thaler said: “After our successful collaboration in Copenhagen and Gothenburg, we look forward to expanding our collaboration with Aviator in Scandinavia.

“This strengthens the position and brand presence of the Lufthansa Group in Stockholm-Arlanda.”

The contract will come into effect from May 2023 and cover nearly 111 turnarounds a week for the group.

Aviator, which is part of Avia Solutions Group, has been providing ground handling services ranging from passenger and baggage handling to de-icing, cargo, and full-freight handling.

It currently provides aviation services at 15 airports across the Nordic region.

Aviator Airport Alliance CEO Jo Alex Tanem said: “It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome Lufthansa Group as our new client.

“We trust that this long-term contract will provide us with ample opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to providing best-in-class services, and we look forward to forging a strong and successful partnership with them.

“We take pride in delivering quality services, and we are confident that our team’s dedication and experience will exceed Lufthansa Group’s expectations.”

In September 2021, Aviator was awarded a three-year aircraft de-icing services contract for Norwegian at Bergen, Bodø, Bardufoss, Tromsø and Trondheim airports in Norway.
