Menzies Aviation has been awarded a three-year ground handling contract by Scottish airline Loganair.

    Menzies will deliver handling and cleaning services for 14,000 Loganair flights per year at Glasgow and Edinburgh airports. Some 6,500 and 7,500 turns are anticipated per annum respectively at the airports.

    The contract expands the two companies’ existing relationship; Menzies already provides de-icing services to the airline at Edinburgh and Glasgow, as well as de-icing, cleaning and ground handling services at Manchester and Isle of Man.
