Aviator continues and expands Norwegian partnership

Aviator and Norwegian Air Shuttle have agreed to prolong the ground handling service contract at London Gatwick until October 2020 and to also include Manchester Airport in the same agreement.

The decision was made by Norwegian earlier this week following negotiations which commenced before Christmas. Norwegian’s award comes at a time when the airline is increasing its flights at LGW with about 20% more flights compared to today. Following the decision Aviator will also take over Norwegian at Manchester Airport as from 1st May 2016. Currently Norwegian has a daily service to any of the three Scandinavian capitals from MAN with a plan to increase these services.

“I am very proud of the hard work and dedication of the Aviator LGW team, which has gone a long way to help secure the Norwegian contract. Everyone should be very proud of their achievement” says Vanessa Branch, the Aviator Service Delivery Manager responsible for the Norwegian operations in the UK, who has also been involved in the negotiating process.

I would like to thank everyone involved in this process and look forward to continuing our relationship with Norwegian Air Shuttle” greets Debbie Westlake, Managing Director Aviator UK.

Operational challenges and organisational changes

Aviator experienced an eventful 2015 some positive developments and some less so! In 2016 we are faced with some wonderful opportunities and also some operational challenges. For example we have already communicated the Letter of Intent signed with SAS in September 2015 and discussions and negotiations are positively progressing.

Another area, which experienced significant growth in 2015 that will dramatically continue in 2016, is the UK. You are already aware that that our operations at London Gatwick have been investigated by the CMA (Competition and Markets Authority), that investigation has now been concluded without finding. It has however had a significant negative effect on our ability to implement essential changes in the business in a timely fashion. We now need to rapidly accelerate this development process.

I established Aviator in the UK in 2014 and I believe passionately in the UK business and as such after close consultation with our Chairman, Bernt Lindberg, I have decided to focus exclusively on implementing the required changes and developing these operations into the great business it certainly has the potential to be. This means I will transfer responsibility for the role of CEO for the Group into the safe hands of Bernt Lindberg.

I will not be disappearing from the business but my focus will be on the UK operations for the foreseeable future. This change has immediate effect.

Yours sincerely

Paul Synnott
