Ground handler Menzies Aviation has won two new cargo contracts with United Airlines in Australia.

From late May, Menzies will begin its three-year cargo handling contracts for United Airlines at Sydney and Melbourne airports.

The deal also includes ground handling services at Brisbane when United resumes its flights there.

Alistair Reid, executive vice president, Oceania and South East Asia at Menzies, commented: “We are proud to see our relationship with United Airlines go from strength to strength, as a key customer for Menzies not only in Australia but globally. The Menzies teams at Melbourne and Sydney have provided a consistently excellent service over the past 14 years, which has laid the groundwork for our new cargo agreements. We’re looking forward to commencing our cargo services for United and growing this successful partnership”.

Beth Mhor, senior category manager of procurement, United Airlines, said: “United is pleased to extend our ground handling agreement for another three years and we look forward to expanding our partnership with Menzies to include cargo”.

Last month, Masil, a ground handling joint venture between Menzies Aviation, Iraqi Airways, Air BP Limited and Al Burhan Group, started cargo ground handling operations at Baghdad International Airport.

Also last month, Avianca Cargo selected Menzies Aviation as its ground handler at Miami International Airport (MIA).

The partnership, which starts in May and last for five years, will see 300 Menzies staff providing cargo ground handling services for Avianca at MIA.
