AGI buys aviation service provider ATS

The acquisition is said to be in line with AGI’s growth strategy across North America.

US-based airline cargo handling services provider Alliance Ground International (AGI ) has purchased aviation service provider Airport Terminal Services (ATS ) for an undisclosed sum.

Established in 1975, ATS operates across the US and Canada with a workforce of more than 5,500.

It provides a large variety of ground handling services such as passenger, ramp and cargo handling, aircraft re-fuelling and de-icing, as well as lounge and concierge services.

The acquisition is said to be in line with AGI ’s growth plan across North America and in the passenger operations market.

AGI CEO Jared Azcuy said: “AGI is a dedicated cargo handler and freighter ground handler. This opportunity with ATS will allow us to build our presence in the airport terminal and passenger side of the business.

“Ultimately, ATS will help AGI maximise customer service, optimize operations, and increase value to all of our customers. We are truly fortunate and excited to welcome the ATS team into the AGI family.”

Additionally, the deal will help AGI establish its presence in the commercial passenger ground handling market and also expand into Europe and other regions beyond North America.

ATS president and CEO Sally Leible said: “We have known Jared for a very long time and are confident this is an excellent fit from all perspectives.

“This will provide exciting new opportunities for all ATS and AGI team members, we are truly excited to begin this new and exciting next chapter.”

The takeover of ATS will add 49 locations across Canada and the US to AGI ’s portfolio.
