Nokas has been awarded the contract to provide security services at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. The prestigious contract starts on 1 February 2017 and is worth about SEK 2 billion over the contract period of up to seven years. The contract covers security checks of passengers and luggage throughout the airport.
Swedavia has now awarded the contract to Nokas after a new round of tenders was announced this winter. Swedavia, which is wholly owned by the Swedish state, owns, operates and develops a network of ten Swedish airports including Arlanda. Arlanda is Sweden's largest airport and is an important hub for both the Stockholm region and Scandinavia in general.
Heine Wang, CEO of Nokas, says:
"We are grateful for the trust Swedavia have shown us. In cooperation with Swedavia, we will focus on quality, efficiency and safety for passengers. Our ability to adapt and be innovative in our services will be a key success factor in the years ahead. This new contract ensures around 800 jobs in the Stockholm region and helps to consolidate our position in the Swedish market."
Anders Lönnebo, Vice Director of Nokas Security AB, says:
"We are very pleased to have been awarded the contract. This is a large, prestigious contract that fits in perfectly with Nokas' strategy to expand in the Swedish market. Since 2008, Nokas has provided similar services at Oslo Airport (Gardermoen), and we will build on the good experience we have from our service provision at Gardermoen, where we have succeeded in combining service and security at a high level with excellent results."
Security Director of Swedavia, Mats Paulsson, comments:
"Security checking at Stockholm Arlanda Airport is the biggest job of its kind in Sweden. We feel very reassured that Nokas, with all their experience of security checking at Gardermoen, will now become our new partner. Security is a key focus area for all our airports, and we are constantly striving to provide our passengers with safety and service."
