Menzies Secures British Airways and easyJet Contracts

Menzies Aviation has announced three contract agreements to deliver aircraft cleaning services to British Airways and easyJet.

Menzies Aviation received full clearance for the acquisition of Airline Services Limited (ASL) in January 2019 and said the move deepened its product offering across the UK, describing it as “an exciting bolt-on to the existing business.” The cabin cleaning element brought with ASL has now expanded with the signing of the new contracts.

From July 2019 Menzies has been awarded a new three-year deal with British Airways at London Heathrow. Menzies will deliver aircraft ultra-cleaning services and carpet shampooing for a minimum of 1,800 aircraft per year. This contract means that Menzies will be welcoming 97 new employees to its Heathrow team.

At London Luton Airport and Edinburgh Airport, Menzies has been appointed to deliver aircraft cabin cleaning services for all easyJet base aircraft – which includes 24 aircraft at Luton and eight at Edinburgh. Both contracts are three-year agreements beginning in August 2019.

Giles Wilson, Menzies interim CEO said: “We are delighted to have been chosen as British Airways’ and easyJet’s cleaning partner of choice at such strategically important locations for the airlines. We are looking forward to working closely with both carriers to deliver the excellent standards of service Menzies is known for.

“Not only do these awards grow our footprint with key customers and service capabilities at UK hub airports, but underpin the strategic rationale for the acquisition of ASL which allows us to provide a wider product offering to our customers.
