Flight Consulting Group expands services to Nordic countries

Flight Handling Group (FCG) has expanded its ground handling services to Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland, meaning the company now covers all Commonwealth Independent State (CIS) countries, the Baltic region and four countries from the Nordic region.

The FCG OPS dispatch center is located in Riga, Latvia, and coordinates the network of ground agents at each airport. This synergy allows customers to be offered high quality services and global geographical coverage at reasonable prices.

Sergey Starkov, head of the FCG OPS dispatch center, said, “Unlike in Western Europe, the organization of ground handling services in Scandinavia is not an easy task. There are countless specific nuances, especially in remote northern airports. This is why many large operators are ready to entrust us with all of their Scandinavian flights from A to Z.

“Our excellent reputation and a huge number of flights have allowed us to not only establish good relationships with Scandinavian airports, but also get special pricing conditions.”

FCG OPS offers a full range of services including ground handling, issue of landing and transit permits, refueling, passenger and crew services.
