A deal has been signed between dormakaba and Avinor Group (which operates the 44 state-owned airports in Norway) for the sale and maintenance of 450 Argus Air eGates.

The agreement is to run for a period of ten years. With this, dormakaba becomes an exclusive supplier of self-boarding and boarding-pass-validation gates for all state-owned Norwegian airports.

"Avinor and dormakaba have successfully partnered in previous projects. Building on this trustful cooperation, we are very pleased that we again convinced Avinor Group with our range of services and innovative products for airport management. This trustful cooperation in an important market highlights our position as a leading provider of seamless airport access solutions," says Jim-Heng Lee, CEO of dormakaba.

The self-boarding gate Argus Air combines dormakabaʼs latest design-oriented sensor barriers with biometric control that enables touchless access.
