Menzies Aviation-Siginon Aviation has extended its ground services to include passenger handling at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) in Nairobi, Kenya.

The recently renewed seven-year ground handling license, issued by the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA), now features a full suite of ground services at NBO, among them ramp, passenger and baggage services, including VIP charter flights handling until the end of 2030. This marks a service expansion for Menzies Aviation-Siginon Aviation in Kenya, where it had previously managed cargo and ground handling for freighter flights.

Jomo Kenyatta International Airport is Kenya’s largest aviation facility, and the busiest airport in East Africa. To match anticipated demand, Menzies Aviation-Siginon Aviation will embark on a local recruitment drive in Kenya.

Meshack Kipturgo, chairman of Menzies Aviation-Siginon Aviation, said: “Menzies Aviation-Siginon Aviation continues to flourish as we had envisioned when we partnered two years ago. This milestone is set to be the first of many, with our focus being on growing our people, service delivery excellence and making a positive mark in Kenya’s air cargo and aviation sector.”

Menzies is the largest aviation services company on the African continent, with operations at 40 airports in 19 countries. Through a strategic partnership with Siginon Aviation Ltd, Menzies Aviation ventured into the Kenyan market in 2021, where it offers cargo handling services at NBO and Eldoret International Airport (EDL).
