The North American subsidiary of Serco Group has been awarded two contracts worth up to $187 million combined to help the Federal Aviation Administration carry out air traffic control work in 11 states across the U.S.’ western region.
Serco Inc. will assign air traffic control specialists and safety managers to 58 towers under the FAA’s Contract Tower program and work to move aircraft at airports and surrounding airspaces, Serco said Thursday.
Both potential five-year contracts contain a one-year base period and four one-year options.
“Air traffic control towers provide vital services ensuring that airports are safer for pilots and passengers at airports across the country, ” said Dan Allen, chairman and CEO of Serco Inc. and an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 list for 2015.
Serco Inc. will also perform risk management and program management work under the contracts.
