Menzies Aviation has secured a new ground handling license to deliver passenger and ramp services at Lima’s Jorge Chavez International Airport (LIM), the main international and domestic airport in Peru.

In a competitive bidding process, Menzies was selected for its expertise and experience in delivering safe and trusted ground handling services, and its commitment to sustainable and responsible business practices.

As one of three ground handling companies at LIM, the eight-year contract will enable Menzies to provide a full suite of ground services.

It will launch a local recruitment drive to match demand and will ensure all employees are trained to the highest standards to deliver the safest and most secure services to customers.

Philipp Joeinig, Group CEO, Menzies Aviation said: “Over the past decade, we have demonstrated our commitment to strategic growth in the region, with Jorge Chavez International Airport in Peru becoming our 134th airport in 14 countries in the Americas.

“Today’s announcement is credit to a truly collaborative effort between our teams in the Americas, Europe and on the ground in Lima.

“We look forward to returning to Peru after 17 years to build a trusted partnership with Lima Airport Partners (LAP) and working with many of our airline partners who currently operate at the airport.”
