There has been a further change at LCY.
Cityjet has stopped self-handling and has sold the division to Sky Handling Partner which is the same company to whom they sold Cityjet Handling in DUB many years ago.
Therefore in LCY there will be Sky Handling Partner and Aria.
GROUPE CRIT IMPLEMENTS GROUND HANDLING ACTIVITIES IN NEW UK AIRPORT.
Sep 22, 2011
Sky Handling Partner U.K., a Groupe Crit subsidiary, has been awarded the tender issued by CITYJET, the Irish subsidiary of Air France, to provide Ground handling services for all their flights at London City Airport.
Sky Handling Partner U.K. has secured a 3 years contract, effective on 15th October 2011, for the provision of passenger and weight and balance services to CITYJET at London City Airport.
This contract represents approximately 30% of the total flight activity in the airport which is located in the heart of the English capital. The expected number of flights to be serviced for the duration of the Handling contract is 37,500.
Sky Handling Partner U.K. will also benefit from the anticipated increase in air business traffic at London City Airport due to the hosting of the Olympic games in 2012.
This commercial success highlights the quality of the Group airlines services sector which was selected for this “premium” airport that has a significant proportion of business travelling passengers.
Therefore, this important contract enables Groupe Crit, one of the leading Ground handling players in France, Africa, and Ireland (with Dublin and Shannon stations), to establish a third station in the UK and Irish market.
Furthermore the entry of SHP UK at London City Airport will purport an excellent opportunity to develop our customer base at this location and build on the strong relationship that exists with our leading global airline customer base.
