Celebi has won a contract to take care of ground handling at Hyderabad Rajiv Gandhi International Airport after winning a competitive bidding process.

The Turkish handling firm is looking to invest about $5-6 million over the next 10 years at the airport. It also recently won a tender for ground handling at Kannur International Airport in Kerala.

Celebi said it is a committed partner with the airport to offer modern and technological services to over 20 million passengers. Services provided will include aircraft cleaning and servicing, loading and unloading of food and beverages, besides cargo and luggage handling.

Celebi India chief executive officer, Murali Ramachandran said: “Being well set for a major growth path in the aviation space, India is a key market for us.

“With our focused and strategic expansion plans, we stand committed to play a meaningful role in the growth story of the aviation sector in this country.”

Celebi also carries out handling at other airports in India in Mumbai, Kochi and Ahmedabad airports.

In India, airports with 10 million passenger or more per annum are required to have three ground handling companies offering services.
