Ground handler Alliance Ground International (AGI) has reached an agreement with industry stalwart Olivier Bijaoui to act as an advisor as it looks to expand outside of North America.

AGI said that Bijaoui “has been a prominent figure in the ground handling industry for 35 years and brings great knowledge and experience” to its senior management team.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Bijaoui spent more than 20 years working for handler Worldwide Flight Services, as well as holding other roles in the sector.

“This is an exciting development for us to fulfil our desire to expand our service offerings beyond North America,” said Jared Azcuy, AGI chief executive.

“Olivier’s expansive experience in the international airport services market will be invaluable to our growth trajectory.”

Bijaoui added: “AGI’s investment and growth in North America has been very impressive and I look forward to help mirror its success in Europe and beyond.”

Over the previous ten months, AGI has announced the acquisitions of North American ground handling companies Airport Terminal Services (ATS), Total Airport Services (TAS), and MIC Cargo (Maestro), as well as significant investments in personnel, technology, and new facilities at Chicago and Newark airports.
