Menzies Aviation and AGS Handling have formed a partnership to provide ground services at three airports in Italy.

The partnership will see Menzies Aviation’s global experience combine with AGS Handling’s local knowledge at Bergamo Orio al Serio, Milan Malpensa and Verona Villafranca airports.

The Menzies AGS partnership has won a contract to provide ground services to easyJet at Milan Malpensa Airport, the airline’s busiest airport in Italy. The five-year contract, which starts in March 2023, will see the partnership provide passenger and ramp services to 24,500 easyJet flights per year.

Menzies has a well-established relationship with easyJet dating back over 15 years and provides a range of ground services such as passenger, ramp, cabin cleaning and de-icing for the airline at 22 airports across Europe.

Miguel Gomez-Sjunnesson, executive vice president Europe, Menzies Aviation, said: “We’re excited about the opportunity to expand our footprint with easyJet and support them at one of their key hubs in Europe. We look forward to delivering best in class service and solutions together with our partner AGS Handling. This latest win builds on our long-standing partnership with easyJet and means we will provide support to its flights at the airline’s largest hubs – Milan, London Gatwick and London Luton.”

AGS Handling general manager Davide Mandaresu added: “Our partnership with Menzies is of important strategic value to our Group. This agreement will allow us to expand our customer base and give further impetus to our strategic development plan in Italy, while bringing our people new opportunities for growth.”
