CMA approves Menzies Aviation’s acquisition of Airline Services

Posted 21 January 2019 · Add Comment

The UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has approved Menzies Aviation's acquisition of Airline Services, an aircraft presentation and de-icing specialist.

The acquisition makes Menzies the largest provider of aircraft de-icing services in the UK.
Whilst the acquisition was completed in 2018, Menzies self-referred the deal to the CMA, who carried out an assessment of competitive issues. Now that the acquisition has been approved by the CMA, Airline Services can now be integrated into the Menzies Aviation business.
Menzies’ UK & Ireland business will now operate at 13 locations, offering aircraft presentation and de-icing services at nine airports where Menzies currently operate, alongside four airports where Menzies did not have a previous presence. This increased geographical footprint strengthens Menzies’ existing market position and expands its service offering to new and existing airline customers at a wider range of locations. 
The acquisition sees 900 Airline Services employees join Menzies Aviation.
Jamie Ross, EVP EMEA said: “Since the acquisition of Airline Services in April 2018, we have been working hard to gain regulatory approval from the CMA, and I am delighted that we can now officially welcome our Airline Services colleagues into the Menzies Aviation family. We now have the opportunity to strengthen our ground handling, de-icing, and aircraft presentation offerings in the UK, securing our place as the aviation services provider of choice.”
