Menzies Aviation and Avianca strengthen partnership with three new contracts

Menzies Aviation, the global aviation logistics specialist, today announces an additional three new contracts with major Latin American carrier Avianca.

These wins will see Menzies become the airline’s ground handling service provider at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ), and air cargo handler at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS).

The new contracts represent a significant expansion of Menzies and Avianca’s partnership and follow Avianca’s recent award of a warehouse cargo handling services contract to Menzies at Miami International Airport, which will see Menzies handle approximately 250,000 tonnes of cargo per annum for the carrier, Menzies’ largest ever single cargo contract.

Earlier this month, Menzies started providing a full suite of ground handling services for an expected six flights per week at LAX connecting the US West Coast with Latin American countries.

John Redmond, Executive Vice President, Americas said: “We are proud that our partnership with Avianca continues to go from strength to strength in the Americas region and beyond.

“We have significantly grown our relationship with Avianca this year, taking over five stations and providing services across ground handling, air cargo handling and into-plane fuelling.

“This is testament to the hard work of our teams on the ground and the safe, secure and consistent quality service we provide.

“We look forward to further strengthening our ties with Avianca.”
