We have a plan that we will return to, says Knut Johannessen CEO of Rygge Airport on how the new company will manage to keep the airport staff through a half year without traffic.

Last week it became clear that the private grouping Rygge Airport plans further operations of Moss Airport Rygge.

Major investor Olav Thon has invited the company to his office on Monday at 10 along with the other main shareholders in Rygge airport.

– We look forward to meeting with excitement and anticipation, says Johannessen.
For the company it becomes a challenge to keep as many as possible of the current employees until traffic eventually picks up again. Normally airlines plan their routes six months in advance.

Meanwhile, the busy days of office as Nav has established at the airport. Several have already acquired new job, and many are in the process of applying.

– It is of great value for us to acquire an existing organization, where employees have the necessary security clearances and on-site training.

Here there are some great values. However, it is a fact that from November 1st there will not be that much traffic at Rygge. We are working on a plan for this waiting period, says Johannessen.
