Menzies Aviation extends easyJet contracts

John Menzies plc, the Edinburgh-based global aviation logistics specialist, announced that Menzies Aviation has secured an extension to its long-standing ground services partnership with easyJet at 21 airports across Europe.

The contract renewals will see Menzies provide a range of ground services, such as passenger, ramp, cabin cleaning and de-icing, for easyJet flights at major European and UK airports,” said Menzies.

“Collectively, these contracts represent over 80,000 turns annually.

Menzies has a well-established relationship with the airline, dating back over 15 years, with a particularly long history of handling easyJet at its home base at London Luton Airport.

That partnership continues with Menzies providing full ground handling and de-icing services at Amsterdam, Nice, Stockholm Arlanda, Prague, Budapest, and Isle of Man airports as well as ground handling at London Luton airport plus passenger and supervision services at 11 airports across Spain.

“Further to this, Menzies provides de-icing at Manchester and London Gatwick and de-icing and cleaning at Edinburgh.”

John Menzies plc chairman & CEO Philipp Joeinig said: “As one of Europe’s leading airlines, we are delighted that easyJet has yet again selected Menzies as its partner of choice to deliver a suite of services across its European network.

“Multiple contract renewals are testament to the excellent standard of service that our teams in Europe provide, and we look forward to continuing to deliver best-in-class solutions for easyJet to further strengthen our already long-standing partnership.”
