Menzies Aviation lands Air China cargo and ground handling contracts

Posted 16 July 2019 · Add Comment

Menzies Aviation today announced a new ground handling contract with Air China at Nice Airport, alongside the renewal of a cargo contract at San Francisco Airport.

The three year contract at Nice Airport starts on 3rd August 2019 and will see Menzies Aviation deliver a full suite of ground handling services to Air China on three weekly flights from Beijing Capital Airport, representing a total of 156 flights per annum and 18,000 turns. With this agreement, Menzies is expanding its ground handling capabilities at Nice Airport so that it can service both narrowbody and widebody aircraft, with Air China being the first widebody customer.
Separately, Menzies has renewed a three year cargo contract with Air China at San Francisco Airport, where it will handle over 8,000 tonnes per year for the Chinese flag carrier. Air China is one of Menzies’ largest cargo customers in the Americas region, where it has been a customer for over 25 years.
Whilst Air China is a new customer for Menzies in Southern Europe, Menzies already provides ground handling and cargo services to the airline at hubs including London Heathrow, Macau International Airport and most recently Los Angeles International Airport.
Giles Wilson, Chief Executive Officer said: “This has been a significant year for our relationship with Air China, and we are delighted to be chosen as the airline’s trusted ground handling partner as it embarks on operations at Nice Airport. Winning our first widebody customer is an important step for Menzies at Nice Airport and is a result of the continued hard work and dedication of the local ground handling team.
"We are delighted to extend our relationship with Air China in San Francisco, where we have been working together successfully for over 25 years. We are proud to receive this renewal for Air China and honoured to be their representative cargo handler for the next three years.  We look forward to delivering the high standards of service we have committed to providing Air China across the globe.”
