Aeroporti di Puglia, the operator of four Italian airports, has signed a deal for full-service rental and GSE (Ground Support Equipment) maintenance with TCR Italia. The contract came into effect on March 15 and guarantees the renewal of the most obsolete vehicles and the daily availability of a predetermined number of vehicles.

Tiziano Onesti, President of Aeroporti di Puglia commented: “The renewal of our GSE fleet allows us to modulate, with efficiency and absolute safety and the highest comfort standards, the right equipment for our traffic requirements, taking particular care of our passengers and airlines. Furthermore, with the introduction of new generation vehicles, Aeroporti di Puglia confirms itself as a company that is always careful to “green” choices, having at its heart the issues of sustainability and corporate social responsibility, at all levels and in every activity.”

Francois Peeters General Manager TCR Italia added: “We are very honoured to have been selected by Aeroporti di Puglia for this project, not only for the importance of its size, but above all because, in addition to allowing us to demonstrate TCR’s ability to manage complex, custom-made solutions, it allows us to support Aeroporti di Puglia in the strategic development of the four Apulian airports, each with its own specific vocation, namely Bari and Brindisi for passenger traffic, Taranto Grottaglie for the aerospace industry and the only authorized spaceport in Europe, and finally Foggia’s Gino Lisa airport which, with the recognition of the SGEI (General Economic Interest Service) will see the development of a logistic base of the Italian Civil Protection.”
