SCOTTISH IT group Amor has signed one of its biggest aviation deals to date with an agreement to install its management technology across 45 Scandinavian airports.

Norwegian operator Avinor will use Amor’s Chroma system to manage the movements of more than 20 million passengers through its national network on half a million flights each year. Glasgow-headquartered Amor said the deal would be worth “millions” over the course of the eight-year contract. Chroma centralises the majority of airport operations into a single system, bringing together real-time flight and passenger data with information on activities such as fuelling, baggage handling, staffing and so forth.

The system is already in use in large airports such as Dubai and Toronto, but this will be the first time for its deployment across a network of sites. State-owned Avinor operates most of the civil airports in Norway.

Martin Bowman, director of Amor’s transport division, said the agreement could pave the way to similar deals in the 
future. “There is no doubt others in the industry will be watching closely,” he said.

Amor was formed from the £28 million buy-out of Glasgow-based Real Time Engineering and Aberdeen-based Pragma in 2009 and is Scotland’s largest independent business technology company.
