Avisure collaboration with Fraport Greece

Avisure recently undertook an audit of #FraportGreece’s wildlife hazard management system (WHMS), which encompasses 12 Greek regional (civilian) airports: Corfu, Kavala, Kefalonia, Kos, Mitilini, Mykonos, Rhodes, Samos, Santorini, Skiathos, Thessaloniki and Zakynthos.

Fraport Greece comprises German airport operator Fraport AG, headquartered in Frankfurt, and fellow shareholder, the Greek business development organisation Copelouzos Group, like Fraport, highly experienced in airport operations. Marguerite, the 2020 European Fund for Energy, Climate Change and Infrastructure, is also part of the shareholding structure.

Reporting on the audit, Avisure CEO, Jeff Follett, said it included checks against the European Union Aviation Safety Agency’s (EASA) acceptable means of compliance and guidance material.The Fraport team is amazing to work with,’ Follett said. ‘They were excellent hosts while I was there, and above all had a commitment to good safety and conservation outcomes.’

Importantly for the ongoing success of their WHMS, Follett said ‘participation at multiple layers of management demonstrated support for the wildlife management program’. He was particularly pleased to be able to spend a full day with the wildlife control team at Thessaloniki Airport, Makedonia (SKG) and to witness first-hand how the team was implementing their WHMS. Personal highlights were seeing ‘some cool birds, including the Eurasian hoopoe and flamingos’, (a big thank you to wildlife controller, Peleka Lamprini, for the great shot of the very distinctive hoopoe), not to mention an amazing lunch against the beautiful backdrop of the Aegean Sea.

Avisure looks forward to more wildlife hazard management #collaboration with #FraportGreece as it continues to upgrade infrastructure and implement internationally accepted standards at these 12 airports.
