Cesar Marchese, American Airlines Senior Manager of Customer Services & Operations - London Heathrow said: “Menzies has been an invaluable part of our team and has contributed directly to the impressive performance and safety standards we’ve seen through these years.

"I am delighted with the renewal of the partnership. It will allow us to continue our family-like relationship and also to invest in facilities and infrastructure, providing a solid base for our continuous improvement and growth at Heathrow.”

John Henderson, Menzies Aviation SVP UK and Ireland added: “We have enjoyed a long-standing relationship with American Airlines, with our partnership at London Heathrow dating back to 2015.

"This contract is a testament to the hard work and diligence of our teams on the ground and I’m delighted to see the relationship continue for a further five years.”
