Menzies Aviation wins major Mexico contract

John Menzies plc, the Edinburgh-based global aviation services business, said on Wednesday that Menzies Aviation has secured a significant contract win with Mexico’s flagship carrier Aeromexico which includes ground services at 15 airports across the country.

As part of the three year agreement Menzies will deliver a full suite of ground services to the airline, including passenger, ramp and cleaning operations, for an expected 23,000 flights per annum at stations including Los Cabos International Airport, Mérida International Airport, Del Bajío International Airport and Oaxaca International Airport,” said Menzies.

“Following this award Menzies Aviation will be the largest provider of aviation services to Aeromexico in the region.

The contract represents further delivery of Menzies’ clear growth strategy and builds on recent positive contract win momentum in the Latin America region, following recent wins with American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Wingo and Air Transat.

“This strong performance in the region reflects Menzies’ strategic investment in new emerging market territories to create growth opportunities across its service portfolio.”
