Global aviation logistics specialist, Menzies Aviation, has secured a number of contract wins and renewals across its UK business.



EgyptAir, a long-standing customer of 18 years, has renewed its contract with Menzies World Cargo for a three-year term at London Heathrow Airport. Operating a daily B777 and double daily B737 service, EgyptAir are the fourth largest airline to operate through Menzies’ Heathrow cargo warehouse.
 
Also, following a competitive tender process, Menzies has been appointed passenger and ramp handling partner to Jazeera Airways, a Kuwaiti based Carrier, at London Gatwick Airport. From June, Jazeera Airways will commence a new six-weekly route, operated by an A320neo aircraft, whilst IAG owned Level has selected Menzies as its ground handler at London Luton Airport, where it is due to start operations for the first time, with six weekly flights to Amsterdam Airport operating on an A321 aircraft. 
 
Finally, Canadian airline WestJet has extended its agreement for passenger, flight ops, ramp handling and de-icing services at Glasgow Airport, where Menzies has been its ground handling partner since 2015.
 
Giles Wilson, Interim Chief Executive Officer 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.”
