John Menzies secures three year deal with new Norwegian airline



John Menzies has announced that it has won a new ground-handling contract to serve new airline Flyr at its home base in Oslo and at Nice Côte d’Azur Airport.

Edinburgh headquartered Menzies won the three year contract with Flyr, which will be starting passenger flights from 30 June.

It will offer domestic flights from Oslo as well as international services to European leisure destinations, with its first flight taking off from Oslo for Tromsø in Norway.

The three-year contract will encompass passenger, ramp and de-icing services.

Miguel Gomez Sjunnesson, executive vice president at Menzies, said: “We are very excited to be partnering with Flyr as it starts these new services. We are already working closely together to deliver a successful start-up and a seamless operation.”

Bjørn Erik Barman-Jenssen, Chief Ground Operations Officer at Flyr, said: “Throughout the whole tender process, Menzies Aviation showed a willingness to work with us to take the airport experience to a new level, while being responsive and creative in their approach to our visions and goals.”

Earlier this month, Menzies made moves into China by acquiring a minority equity stake in Guangzhou J Freight Aviation Logistics Supply Chain for £3.4m.

The joint venture will see Menzies manage and operate a new cargo terminal at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in China on behalf of the shareholders of JFreight.
