SATA to spend almost €350,000 on ‘grooving’

by TPN/ Lusa, in Business · 28-09-2017 14:54:00 · 0 Comments

Azores airline, SATA, has launched an international call for tenders to carry out works on the runway at Pico island in the Azores costing €349,000 to improve operability, it said earlier this week.

The airline said the works would be conducted at night so as not to affect flights and involve ensuring the same safety conditions whether there is rain or not.
Pico airport, in the central group of islands, is one of the airports run by SATA with the highest level of traffic.
SATA explained that the works, called ‘grooving’ aimed to improve the aircrafts’ grip and improve the removal of surface water from the runway through grooves that are cut perpendicularly across the runway.
