Baltic Ground Services CZ – sister company of Baltic Ground Services (BGS) and part of the Avia Solutions Group, has signed operational financing contracts worth €1.2 million with Raiffeisen Bank group.
The Czech Republic ground handler currently operates in Ostrava Airport, where it provides into-plane fueling service. Until now, the company has been financed by the shareholder.
“This is a major recognition for the company that started operating in the Czech Republic just two years ago. Baltic Ground Services CZ has achieved its financial targets relatively quickly.
