Middle East Airlines has extended a cargo handling contract with Menzies Aviation.
The contract period, which began in September 2019, will run for a further two years.
Giles Wilson, Chief Executive Officer for Menzies, told The Stat Trade Times that the company is seeing contract renewals “time and time again”.
He said: “We look forward to strengthening our existing partnerships, and to forging equally strong relationships with new airline customers in the UK over the coming years.”
Menzies operates across around 200 airports and provides landside and airside services, including ground handling, cargo, fuelling and executive services.
In June, Beirut-based Middle East Airlines signed an order for four A321XLRs.
The agreement takes Middle East Airlines’ cumulative single aisle orders with Airbus to 15 A321neo family aircraft, including 11 A321neos and four A321XLRs with deliveries starting in 2020.
MEA will use the A321XLR to strengthen its network in Africa and Asia.
