Menzies Aviation Secures Ground Handling Contract From Virgin Atlantic

June 26, 2008

Menzies Aviation, a provider of ground handling of airfreight for freight forwarders and airlines, has been awarded a passenger and ramp ground handling contract by Virgin Atlantic Airways at the Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport in Australia.

Virgin Atlantic operates a daily A340-600 service between Hong Kong and Sydney with double daily connections to the UK out of Hong Kong.

Alistair Reid, director Australia for Menzies Aviation, said: “We have provided a tailored operation to suit the requirements of Virgin Atlantic since December 2004 and have now agreed a new four year contract. There were aggressive challenges from our competitors but it was our flexible attitude and demonstrated service capabilities that got us over the line.”
