Menzies Aviation has secured a number of ground handling contract wins and renewals at airports across its UK business.

At London Heathrow Airport, EgyptAir, a long-standing customer of 18 years, has renewed its contract with Menzies World Cargo for a three-year term. Operating a daily Boeing 777 and double daily B737 service, EgyptAir are the fourth largest airline to operate through Menzies’ Heathrow cargo warehouse.

At London Gatwick Airport, following a competitive tender process, Menzies has been appointed passenger and ramp handling partner to Jazeera Airways, a Kuwaiti based carrier. From June, Jazeera Airways will commence a new six-weekly route, operated by an Airbus A320neo aircraft.

At London Luton Airport, IAG owned Level has selected Menzies as its ground handler of choice, where it is due to start operations for the first time, with six weekly flights to Amsterdam Airport operating on an A321 aircraft. 

At Glasgow Airport, Canadian airline WestJet has extended its agreement for passenger, flight ops, ramp handling and de-icing services, where Menzies has been its ground handling partner since 2015.

Menzies Aviation interim chief executive officer, Giles Wilson said:It is great to see some momentum across the UK business. Not only is this growth coming from new contract wins, but also multiple contract renewals, a testament to the great work of the Menzies team on the ground. I look forward to further successes as the year progresses.”
