Menzies Aviation has acquired Aircraft Services and Consulting, a Panama City company with over 20 years’ experience operating in airports across the Latin America country.
This strategic acquisition enables Menzies Aviation to enter the vibrant aviation market in Panama and extend its range of services to customers at Tocumen International Airport (PTY) and Scarlett Martinez International Airport (RIH), with additional operating licenses secured for David Airport (DAV) and Panama Pacifico Airport (BLB).
Panama is a pivotal commercial gateway within the Americas region, strategically connecting the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Its geographical significance makes it an ideal hub for efficient cargo and passenger connectivity, Menzies said. Tocumen International Airport, the largest airport in Central America, handles over 15 million passengers annually, serves as the home base for COPA Airlines and accommodates more than 20 major regional and international carriers.
John Redmond, EVP Americas, Menzies Aviation, said: “We are excited to add our seventh country in Latin America and our 46th and 47th airports respectively in this important and growing market. This acquisition further demonstrates our commitment to being a trusted service partner across this region. We look forward to the exciting opportunities that lie ahead as Menzies strengthens its presence in Panama and continues to provide unparalleled support to the aviation community in the region.”
Aircraft Services and Consulting will be re-branded and trade as Menzies Aviation (Panama).
