AeroGround Flughafen München GmbH, the ground handling subsidiary of the Munich Airport operating company (FMG), has signed an agreement with the Slovenian airline Adria Airways on a long-term full-handling contract at Munich Airport.

In cooperation with its affiliates aerogate and Cargogate, AeroGround is Munich Airport’s only full-service provider offering the complete range of landside and airside services to cover all aspects of aircraft, passenger and cargo handling.  A cornerstone of this concept is the central sales unit of AeroGround, which, since 2013, has handled all sales and marketing activities for the three ground handling service providers AeroGround, aerogate and Cargogate.

The central sales unit reached agreement with the Slovenian carrier Adria Airways on a long-term full-handling contract at Munich Airport.  It covers both aircraft and baggage handling, to be performed by AeroGround, as well as cargo handling through cargogate.  The Star Alliance carrier Adria Airways flies several times a week from Munich to the Slovenian capital Ljubljana, Pristina (Kosovo), and, since the start of this year, to Łódź (Poland).  For Munich Airport’s ground handling teams, this means an increased order volume of up to 1,200 handling operations per year, or 2,400 aircraft movements.

Commenting on the new contract, Sieg-fried Pasler, the managing director of AeroGround and Cargogate, said: “We are very proud of the airlines’ trust in our full range of services.  For us, the success of our sales unit in gaining this new customer will also spur us on in our continuous efforts to develop and improve our quality and efficiency.”
