AeroGround Flughafen München, the ground
handling subsidiary of the Munich Airport operating company (FMG),
has reached an agreement with the Slovenian airline Adria Airways
on a long-term full-handling contract at Munich Airport.
The deal with Adria Airways covers both
aircraft and baggage handling, to be performed by AeroGround, as
well as cargo handling through cargogate.
The Star Alliance carrier Adria Airways flies
several times a week from Munich to the Slovenian capital
Ljubljana, Pristina (Kosovo), and, since the start of this year,
to Lódz (Poland).
For Munich Airport's ground handling teams, the
means an increased order volume of up to 1,200 handling operations
per year, or 2,400 aircraft movements.
Commenting on the new contract, Siegfried
Pasler, the managing director of AeroGround and Cargogate, said,
"We are very proud of the airlines' trust in our full range of
services. For us, the success of our sales unit in gaining this
new customer will also spur us on in our continuous efforts to
develop and improve our quality and efficiency."
