Menzies Aviation wins fuelling contracts on both sides of the Atlantic

Menzies Aviation has won new fuelling contract wins on both sides of the Atlantic after a third airport to its French fuelling operations.

The aviation services provider has secured a contract to provide 24-hour fuel farm management and ITP operations on behalf of World Fuel Services at Paris Le-Bourget Airport.

Menzies Aviation Fuelling France already has significant fuelling operations at Bordeaux–Mérignac Airport and Nice Côte d’Azur Airport, handling more than 17.4m litres of fuel and over 7,500 flights a year.

Menzies has also seen growth in its North American fuelling operations as Copa Airlines, the flag carrier of Panama has extended its into-plane fuelling contract at six airports across the US including FLL, LAX, MCO, MSY, ORD & TPA, and awarded an additional contract at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The renewed contracts mean that Menzies Aviation will supply Copa Airlines with over 16 million gallons of fuel, powering 5,000 flights over twelve months.

Menzies Aviation chief executive officer, Forsyth Black said: “It’s great to see significant growth in our fuelling operations in both our European and American regions, and I’m very pleased that both Copa Airlines and World Fuel Services have decided to expand our already successful partnerships.

“Menzies Aviation is committed to growing our fuelling capabilities, we will continue to innovate and drive new technologies to provide our customers with a premium offering.”
