Airline Services Wins easyJet Contract

UK LOW-COST carrier easyJet has renewed and expanded its agreement with Airline Services Ltd (ASL) for the provision of de-icing services at more airports throughout the UK.
The new contract adds London Gatwick, Birmingham and Bristol International to the list of airports already supported by Airline Services and represents an increase of approximately 50% in the number of easyJet aircraft serviced by ASL.
Nick Whinder ASL Director Ramp Operations commented:  “The extended periods of sub-zero temperatures during winter 2008/9 were a severe test of the UK’s de-icing providers.  We have worked with easyJet for a number of years and the expansion of our contract is testament to the consistently reliable and professional service that ASL provides to all its customers.”
Airline Services will provide de-icing expertise on easyJet’s fleet including A319, A320, A321 and B737-700 aircraft.  ASL now has representation at nine UK airports:  Birmingham, Bristol International, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London Gatwick, London Luton, London Stansted, Manchester and Newcastle.
Airline Services currently sits on the European De-icing Steering Group alongside major UK & European carriers and governing bodies such as the CAA..
