Contract renewals in South Africa


e-Bulletin from Forsyth Black - SVP Africa, Middle East & India

It’s been a busy time for the Commercial team in South Africa so far this year with a number of customers committing to contract extensions with Menzies. In an extremely tough market, we’ve concluded renewals with the following airlines:

British Airways - multi-year, including adding their passenger services, ticket desks and lounges to our portfolio

Air Botswana - multi-year, including adding pax, ramp and cargo in Cape Town for their new daily service to Maun

Etihad - renewed with a multi-year extension, and as a result of their purchase of a stake in Air Seychelles we have aligned that contract also

Cathay Pacific, Turkish, Arik Air and El Al have also concluded deals extending our valuable relationships for various lengthy periods.

Imperial Air Cargo, the South African domestic freighter operator, has concluded a renewal for five years with Menzies covering their ramp and warehousing in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth

Well done to Peter Barry and Theresa Mpotoane as well as all the other staff who helped bring these ones home to Menzies!
