Menzies Aviation has joined forces with Airport Services Budapest Zrt. (AS Budapest) to extend its ground handling, cargo and lounge services at Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport (BUD) in Hungary.

AS Budapest is the ground handling company for several major airlines at Hungary’s largest commercial airport.

As part of the new agreement, which is subject to regulatory approvals, AS Budapest will transfer all existing contracts and assets to Menzies Aviation Hungary Kft.

AS Budapest employees will be offered employment agreements with Menzies Aviation Hungary Kft, as their new employer.

Miguel Gomez Sjunnesson, executive vice president Europe, said: “Joining forces with AS Budapest not only extends our footprint at BUD airport, but marks the next step in our European growth journey.

“AS Budapest has a long track record and strong client base, and we look forward to combining this with our international expertise and extensive reach at more than 297 airports in 65 countries.

“Together, we are committed to enhancing the experience for our airline customers, airport partners and passengers traveling to Budapest, ensuring high quality services and operational excellence.”

Menzies Aviation recently completed its acquisition of a 50.1% stake in Groundforce Portugal. 

Groundforce Portugal manages more than 100,000 aircraft turns every year across five of the busiest airports in Portugal, where it provides ground and air cargo services to several global airlines.
