Penauille Servisair congratulated on successful introduction of the JFK InfraTek infrared De-icing facility at New York JFK

Penauille Servisair, the leading Global Aviation Ground Services Company, is delighted to have been acknowledged and rewarded with special thanks from the Director of De-icing Services at Radiant Aviation Services.  The congratulations come after Penauille Servisair successfully managed the operation of the first aircraft through the new InfraTek infrared de-icing facility at New York JFK Airport.

Penauille Servisair manages and operates the High Tech de-icing facility at JFK Airport on behalf of Radiant Aviation Services.  This is the only Service Company operated Radiant de-icing system in North America and while there are two smaller versions in the United States and one in Oslo, by volume, the facility at JFK is approximately 2.5 times larger.  The system provides airlines the ability to deice up to a 747- 300 size aircraft more quickly and for dramatically less cost than traditional glycol de-icing technology.

Ian Sharkey, Director De-Icing Services, Radiant Aviation Services, Commented,

"It has been a pleasure working with you all.  As the services expand at JFK, challenges and opportunities will be presented, but I know that Penauille Servisair has almost unparalleled experience in operating very large de-icing facilities and will rise to the occasion and continue to provide safe and efficient service to Radiant and our Airline Customers.  I look forward to the continuing success leading to the expansion of the JFK de-icing facility."

Penauille Servisair is the North American leader in the development and operation of Centralised De-Icing Facilities.  They not only provide the knowledge to operate the facilities but also assist in the earliest stages of design and subsequent management.  As a result of their industry experience and expertise, airports entrust Penauille Servisair with the management and operations to meet their de-icing needs.
