MIAMI – Mexico’s largest international airline and flag carrier Aeromexico (AM) has awarded logistics firm Menzies Aviation a 15-airport contract.

Menzies will provide the airline with a full range of ground-handling services, including passenger, ramp, and cleaning operations, at airports such as Los Cabos International Airport (SJD), Mérida International Airport (MID), Del Bajo International Airport (BJX), and Oaxaca International Airport (OAX), as part of the agreement.

Menzies will handle an estimated 23,000 turns per year over the three-year contract, as well as operate the most Aeromexico stations of any handler in the region.

The contract expands Menzies’ position in Mexico and comes on the heels of the company’s recent contract victories in Latin America, including wins with American Airlines (AA), Delta Air Lines (DL), Wingo (P5), and Air Transat (TS).

The logistics company says the region’s good performance is due to the company’s investment in new growing market regions, which creates development prospects throughout its service range.
