Menzies Aviation has reaffirmed its contract with Malaysia Airline to provide ground support services for the company’s flights in Australia and New Zealand for another five years. 

The Scotland-based company will continue supplying passenger, ramp and cargo services for the airline at airports in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth in Australia and in Auckland, New Zealand. 

Darren Masters, executive vice president for Oceania and South East Asia for Menzies Aviation, said: “The renewal of this agreement is a reflection on the strong strategic partnership that has developed between Menzies and Malaysia Airlines over the course of eight years.
