Menzies Aviation has signed a new contract with Frontier Airlines to provide full ground services at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) from next month.

The new contract bolsters Menzies’ existing operation at ATL, where it provides into-plane fuelling. The company will invest around $3m in new ground services equipment (GSE) and will recruit a 200-strong team to manage the ground services operation. 

This will be the 20th city where Menzies provides services to Frontier across the United States and Mexico. The addition of ATL means that Menzies will be the carrier’s service provider at three of its largest hubs, including Denver International Airport and Orlando International Airport.

John Redmond, executive vice president Americas, Menzies Aviation, said: “We are delighted to expand into ground services at Atlanta and to add another important Frontier location to our large network of airports with the airline. We know the Frontier product very well from our existing operations.”
