Norwegian inks new Nordic ground contracts

Carrier signs new contracts for services in Scandinavia

Norwegian has signed new contracts for ground services at airports in Scandinavia, effective from April 1. The company Menzies Aviation, which already has extensive cooperation with the airline, will deliver all ground services at Copenhagen Airport (CPH) and Oslo Airport (OSL).

Scandinavia’s second largest airline and Europe’s third largest low-cost carrier recently completed a major tender for the provision of ground handling services in the Nordic region. Ground handling includes a check of passengers, baggage and services related to aircraft while parked at airports.

Norwegian says that the tender process has resulted in the following new appointments from April 1:

Sweden: Swedavia, already active at smaller airports in Sweden, also takes over Norwegian passenger handling at Kiruna, Lulea, Umea and Visby airports. In Gothenburg Norwegian continues its cooperation with Menzies Aviation, while cooperation with Aviator continues in Stockholm and Malmö.

Denmark: Menzies Aviation becomes Norwegian’s new partner at CPH.
