Menzies Aviation has expanded its ground and air cargo services partnership with LOT Polish Airlines across Europe and North America.
The five-year contract covers 12 airports across the airline’s global network, including key hubs at Chicago and Budapest.
Ground handler Menzies will be providing air cargo services at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ), while contract renewals for passenger, ramp and cargo services have also been agreed at Václav Havel Airport Prague (PRG), Budapest Airport (BUD) and Avram Iancu Cluj International Airport (CLJ).
Menzies will also provide passenger and ramp services at YYZ and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Iasi International Airport (IAS), Oslo Airport (OSL) and Bucharest Henri Coandă International Airport (OTP).
There will be a continuation of ramp and passenger services at Nice Côte d’Azur Airport (NCE), ramp handling at O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and de-icing, passenger and ramp services at London Heathrow (LHR). In addition, Menzies will start providing passenger services at ORD.
In addition to standard ground services, the partnership between Menzies and LOT Polish Airlines includes knowledge sharing, developing efficiency improvement initiatives and integration of services support systems, said Menzies.
Miguel Gomez, executive vice president Europe, Menzies Aviation, said: “We are thrilled to be growing our relationship with LOT Polish Airlines at 12 airports across Europe and North America. The extension of our partnership through the GTA demonstrates Menzies’ trusted reputation as ground handler of choice for the airline at these locations and we look forward to further strengthening our partnership over the years to come.”
In March, Menzies Aviation announced it had renewed and won several key air cargo and ground services contracts with airlines across Australia and New Zealand.
At the end of March, Menzies said it would recommend to shareholders a takeover offer from Agility subsidiary National Aviation Services (NAS) that values the company at £571m.
