Menzies Aviation will deliver passenger and ramp services at Lima’s Jorge Chávez International Airport (LIM)

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

Operated by Lima Airport Partners (LAP), Jorge Chávez International Airport is the country’s main gateway to South America, providing access to more than 62 destinations. It serves more than 25 passenger airlines, manages more than 213.77 kt of cargo and is the hub for LATAM Peru. In 2023, it saw over 170,500 aircraft movements, with passenger volumes exceeding 21 million.

With a strong focus on sustainability and innovation, Menzies ‘Electric First’ approach to ground support equipment (GSE) aligns with the airport’s efforts to drive sustainable practices within the aviation industry.

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

“This 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 and working with many of our airline partners who currently operate at the airport.”
