Role switch at Avinor Oslo airport
Stine R. Westby, Avinor’s current executive vice-president for operations and infrastructure, has been appointed director of Oslo airport. The present airport director, Øyvind Hasaas, will take over responsibility for the operations and infrastructure sector.
Avinor CEO, Dag Falk-Petersen, observed: “This is a solution I am certain is good for Avinor. It will contribute to develop both Oslo airport and the operations and infrastructure unit. Such an exchange creates dynamics and innovation, which is particularly important in times where we are trying to find new and more cost-effective solutions through a major cost-reduction programme.”
The operations and infrastructure unit is responsible, inter alia, for development projects and terminal design, and constitutes a significant professional community. Several key projects in the ongoing cost reduction programme are in that unit’s area of responsibility.
The exact time for the exchange of roles and responsibilities has not yet been decided, but is expected for August/September. (mw)
