Menzies Aviation has secured its first engineering contract in Australia with long term customer LATAM Airlines.
The agreement will see Menzies provide a full suite of engineering services to LATAM at Sydney Kingsford Smith and Auckland International airports.
LATAM will operate up to seven flights a week in Sydney and 14 flights a week in Auckland and this contract win marks the first piece of engineering business with LATAM across the entire Menzies Aviation network.
Menzies already provides engineering services for a number of other domestic and international, narrow and widebody airlines at Macau International, Auckland International, Christchurch, Wellington and Hamilton airports.
The company is planning to grow its engineering services throughout Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia. Menzies said it would expand engineering services to Queenstown Airport by the end of 2022.
“We are thrilled to announce our latest contract win with LATAM Airlines. We have built a strong relationship with the airline in Latin America, which has assisted with the growth of the partnership through this extension in Australia and New Zealand,” said Menzies Aviation’s executive vice president Oceania, South-East Asia and China Alistair Reid.
“Not only does this contract mark a significant expansion of our services for LATAM but introduces our engineering offering to Australia. This milestone paves the way for the growth of our engineering capability across the region in the coming years.”
