Airline Services Handling, part of the Airline Services Group, is to take over as Aurigny’s ground handling agent at London Gatwick Airport from 1 September.
The new handling company was selected by Aurigny after a competitive tendering process. Airline Services noted its “excellent track record” in serving, amongst others, Turkish Airlines and Monarch.
Malcolm Coupar, Aurigny’s commercial director, commented, “We are confident that Airline Services will deliver an excellent standard of service to our customers and any changes that they notice will be positive ones. Aurigny flies into London’s Gatwick airport six times a day on weekdays and five times a day at weekends, meaning we’re an important and regular customer. In fact, we operate more flights there than other, much bigger airlines.”
Andy Cruise, sales director of Airline Services Handling added, “We are delighted to start work with Aurigny, an award winning and dynamic regional airline. Punctuality and reliability are an important part of their offering and we are committed to ensuring that our handling mirrors their goals. We have built up our operation at Gatwick Airport extensively over the past nine months and are looking forward to supporting such a reputable and established operator.”
Passengers will still check in at the same desk in the South Terminal and, says Airline Services Handling, “should enjoy a timely, informed and polite service each time they fly into or out of Gatwick with Aurigny”.
