Airport International Group Announces Arab Logistics Systems as Preferred Bidder for Facilities Management
Airport International Group (AIG), the Jordanian Company responsible for the rehabilitation, expansion and operation of the Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA), has announced the selection of Arab Logistics Systems (owned by Libanet Group) as the preferred bidder to provide facilities management services tender at QAIA’s new terminal, following a comprehensive bidding process.
The process to select a facilities management partner was open to submissions from both local and international facilities management service providers, and saw the participation of seven bidders.
The ultimate objective of the evaluation process is to ensure the best quality services for travelers. The process of selecting the most suitable finalist was the result of thorough analysis and objective criteria to ensure the utmost fairness and transparency. Strict technical and financial requirements were the basis for the evaluation process.
“With the upcoming launch of the new terminal, one of our biggest priorities is to ensure that this state-of-the-art facility is maintained to meet world-class standards,” commented AIG CEO Kjeld Binger. “Arab Logistics Systems presented us with a new Quality Management System that will ensure a significant improvement in airport facilities management, and we are looking forward to working with them.”
Arab Logistics Systems (ALS) is a Jordanian company specialized in airport and aircraft cleaning services. ALS provides project operation, facility management and cleaning services through its dedicated and highly trained staff.
Out of AIG’s continuous compliance with competition laws and regulations and to ensure a fair and transparent evaluation during the bid process, an AIG investor affiliated with Arab Logistics Systems, Edgo, was excluded by AIG’s board during the entire review and selection process, including the technical and financial evaluations and the voting process. In addition, an internationally-renowned auditing firm was invited by AIG as a third party to monitor and oversee the bid evaluation and selection process.
