Menzies Aviation will provide a full suite of ground handling services to the low-cost airline to support the smooth operation of its domestic flights. When flight volumes at the airport recover it is expected that this contract will represent 5000 turns per annum, as Wizz Air looks to grow its presence in the Norwegian market.

This award follows the recent renewal of Wizz Air and Menzies’ agreement at Václav Havel Airport Prague, which will see Menzies providing ground handling services to the airline at the station for the next three years.

These wins further strengthen Menzies’ existing relationship with Wizz Air. In November 2020, Wizz Air selected Menzies as their ground handling partner as part of a five-year agreement at their Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport base, with Menzies already supporting the carrier at airports in London, Cluj, Timișoara, Iasi and Sibiu.

Thomas Andersson, Vice President Northern Europe, Menzies Aviation commented: “It’s fantastic to see our relationship with Wizz Air go from strength to strength. We ended last year with a major contract win at the airline’s Budapest base and have built on this to both secure our contract renewal at Prague and this latest award at Oslo. These successes are the result of a close working partnership we have established with WIZZ across our network of stations, and the excellent service provided by Menzies professionals on the ground. We are looking forward to ramping up our support of WIZZ operations as flight volumes return.”
