New Airport Director at Avinor Oslo Airport


Executive Vice President for operations and infrastructure with Avinor, Stine R. Westby, has been appointed Airport Director for Oslo Airport. Airport Director Øyvind Hasaas will take over responsibility for the area of operations and infrastructure.

“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,” says CEO of Avinor, Dag Falk-Petersen.

Among other things, the operations and infrastructure unit is responsible for development projects and terminal design, and constitutes a significant professional community. Several key projects in the ongoing cost reduction programme are in this 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.

“I’m looking forward to starting one of Norway’s most interesting jobs, and am humbled by the task. This is a job with great social responsibility that I am looking forward to get to grips with,” Westby says.

“I’m looking forward to new responsibilities and the opportunity to use my experience from Oslo Airport for the benefit of the entire Avinor group,” Hasaas says.
