Menzies Aviation has received a five-year renewal of its ground handling licence at Princess Juliana International Airport, located on the Caribbean island of Sint Maarten.

The extended licence will enable Menzies to continue offering ground handling services at the airport and will be valid until December 2026.

According to an estimate, Menzies Aviation will offer services to more than 7,700 annual aircraft turns for various airlines operating at the Princess Juliana Airport.

In an effort to improve the service level and passenger experience, Menzies has invested in new equipment and vehicles at its Sint Maarten station.

Commenting on the agreement, Menzies Aviation CEO Giles Wilson said: “Sint Maarten is an important station for us in the Caribbean and the extension of our ground handling licence at Princess Juliana International Airport clearly demonstrates that airport management has confidence in our services.

“Menzies’ team of professionals have been delivering a premium ground handling service in Sint Maarten since 2001, and I look forward to working with airlines flying to and from the island for an additional five years.”

Menzies Aviation has been operating at Princess Juliana Airport since 2001.

The operator recently renewed its contract with Canadian airline Westjet to provide ground handling services at Toronto Pearson International Airport, its main operational hub.

Last month, Menzies secured contracts from Air China to deliver ground handling services at Nice Airport (NCE) and cargo handling at San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

Menzies Aviation operates at 212 airports in 36 countries and is supported by a team of 32,000 staff. It serves more than 500 customers, handles 1.3 million flights and manages 1.6 million tonnes of cargo per year.
