Menzies Aviation has grown its handling portfolio in Scandinavia as it welcomed China Eastern to Stockholm Arlanda and S7 Airlines to both Stockholm and Copenhagen airports in May and June.
China Eastern inaugurated a new direct route from Shanghai Pudong International Airport to Stockholm Arlanda on 16 June, providing connections to destinations in Asia. The airline is China’s second largest airline by passenger numbers, and operates both domestic and international flights.
In addition, Menzies welcomed Siberian carrier S7 Airlines which opened two new routes between Saint Petersburg and Stockholm and Copenhagen. The airline will operate two flights weekly from both airports. It is Russia’s largest domestic airline and operates throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Menzies Aviation senior vice president for Continental Europe, Miguel Gomez said: “Contract wins such as Siberia Airlines and China Eastern continue to enforce our strategic expansion throughout the Scandinavia region. Thanks to the Menzies teams at Stockholm and Copenhagen for their hard work and continued excellence.”
