Global aviation logistics provider, Menzies Aviation, has expanded its partnership with Flair Airlines across Canada, having been awarded full-service ground handling agreements by the Canadian ultra low-cost carrier (ULCC).
The expanded agreement encompasses nine of the 19 hubs in Flair Airlines’ network. Menzies will provide passenger and ramp services to Flair at Halifax Stanfield International Airport, Ottawa International Airport and Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport from May; at the airports of Saint John, Charlottetown and Victoria from July; and at Abbotsford International Airport from August.
This will build on the existing partnership between Menzies and Flair at two key Canadian stations, with Menzies having supported the carrier at Toronto Pearson International Airport since February, and at Saskatoon John G. Diefenbaker International Airport since August 2000, where the Menzies team is currently preparing for the return of flight schedules.
“It is with great pride that we announce the expansion of our partnership with Flair Airlines across Canada. These new contracts demonstrate Flair’s trust in Menzies to support their growth ambitions, and are testament to the excellent standards of service that have been provided on the ground by Menzies professionals at Toronto and Saskatoon,” said John Redmond, Executive Vice President, Americas.
With a strong presence in the Canadian market across the ground services, cargo services and fuelling sectors, this recently expanded agreement will see Menzies now be operating at a total of 21 airports in Canada.
