The state-owned company Avinor is in the competition to operate the air traffic control towers of Spanish airports, including in the cities of Alicante and Valencia, and on the islands of Ibiza and Lanzarote.
It is the company Avinor Flysikring, a subsidiary of Avinor, which has submitted tenders in three competitions for the operation of the air traffic control towers at Spanish airports, writes Flysmart24.
If Avinor Flysikring receives the award, the air traffic controllers will work for the Norwegian company.
“Avinor Flysikring has participated in some competitions in the past, but this is the biggest tender to date, as far as I know,” says Communications Manager Erik Løding of Avinor Aviation Security to Flysmart24.
Although the Norwegian company has submitted tenders in three competitions, one organization can win a maximum of two of the three tenders.
Also in Norway, the operation of the towers at several airports has been put up for tender. Avinor Flysikring lost the contract for the tower operation in Kristiansand and Ålesund last year when Avinor put them up for tender. That is why the Norwegian authorities have agreed to Avinor Flysikring to enter into international tender competitions.
