Coor wins new order from Linköping City Airport – and broadens its field of activity

Coor Service Management has signed a three-year agreement with Linköping City Airport to deliver airport operation services. The aim is to develop cost-effective solutions, partly by drawing on synergies with other service operations within Coor.

Linköping City Airport is a wholly-owned subsidiary of SAAB AB and is run in close co-operation with the City of Linköping. Over 80,000 passengers a year pass through the central Swedish airport via commercial services. In addition to civil aviation, much of the operation is linked to the local aviation industry.

Under the agreement between Coor and Linköping City Airport, 35 people currently employed by the existing service provider will be offered employment at Coor. The agreement comes into effect on 29 March 2010.

In 2003 Coor began a collaboration with SAAB AB to deliver workplace and property-related service. Today the partnership encompasses several SAAB AB sites across Sweden.

"The new agreement with Linköping City Airport is the result of our good collaboration with SAAB AB. We are delighted and extremely proud of this extended confidence, which we view as firm proof that we have a good, competitive offering," says Staffan Ebenfelt, President of Coor Service Management in Sweden.

Coor's assignment includes passenger and forwarding services, field service, ramp service, security control, aviation fuel service and airport rescue services. The aim is to develop cost-effective solutions, partly by drawing on synergies with other service operations within Coor.

"We look forward to working with Coor as a supplier of airport services, and are convinced they will provide us with an efficient, operationally reliable organisation," says Torbjörn Mortensen, MD and Airport Manager at Linköping City Airport.
