Menzies Aviation renews air cargo handling contract with Jazeera Airways

Menzies Aviation has successfully extended its air cargo handling services agreement with Kuwaiti carrier Jazeera Airways.

The announcement marks the next step in an expanding partnership with the low cost airline, which includes passenger, ramp, and air cargo services at seven airports in five countries.

At Kuwait International Airport (KWI), the extended five-year agreement will see Menzies Aviation, operating as National Aviation Services (NAS), continue to deliver ground and air cargo handling services, managing more than 1,400 flights a month. It will also oversee the airline’s dedicated Pearl lounge in the exclusive Jazeera Terminal 5.

Lukasz Skorupa, EVP of commercial at Menzies Aviation, said: “The extension of our agreement with Jazeera Airways in Kuwait is the next step in our continued strategic partnership, and demonstrates the strength of our ground services offering.

“We have built a strong relationship with the airline since we began working with them in 2005, first as NAS and now as Menzies Aviation.

“We are delighted to continue delivering our ground, cargo and lounge services in Kuwait and new locations in the airline’s growing network across the Middle East, Central and South Asia, Europe and Africa.”

This latest announcement in the ongoing partnership with Jazeera Airways follows the introduction of passenger, ramp and air cargo services earlier this year at Islamabad International Airport in Pakistan, where the Menzies-RAS team successfully managed its inaugural flight from Kuwait.

In Europe, new contracts were also secured at Tivat International Airport and Belgrade Nikola Telsa Airport. This marks the next step in the partnership between Menzies and the airline, building on its existing operations.
