We would all be interested to know what are the aspects of particular concern.

Easyjet

Catching up on this thread and the talk of easyjet and swissport makes me wonder how people not working for either company would know about this?? The subject of swissport loosing the contract has been going on for ages and many people said its a definate but still no word!!

The other side of the coin could be that swissport want to loose the contract and i wouldnt blame them as EZY seems to do business in terms of pay pennies expect first class service. Just as many of us all know the world of business you get what you pay for and swissport may have done the number crunching and seen that it really is not woth it for them carry it on. The contract would only be passed over to someone else and although easyjet is swissports main customer they still have contracts with many other airlines. This in turn could see swissport exploring contracts with the other airlines operating from the airport.

Then again just my opinion as many others on the site and only time will tell what lies ahead.

Well firstly, I can confirm Swissport do know they have this as staff have been talking.

Secondly, Swissport's main customer is Ryanair not easyjet .

Live the dream....

SURELY EASYJET IS A SERIOUS '2ND STRING TO SWISSPORTS BOW' AND AS SUCH WOULD BE A BIG LOSS OF REVENUE TO THEM. PRESUMABLY TUPE WOULD APPLY TO THE AFFECTED STAFF

Im not sure if many of you understand the set up of swissport.

One half of the company is dedicated to Ryanair because of the large operation and operates seperately. And on the other side there is the easyjet contract which is the biggest yet to fill in for the down time and in turn increase efficiency they handle other carriers such as tcx,4u, dy and so on. Whils the management is a central structure the loss of the easyjet contract would not mean the end of swissport as a whole all it would mean is the other side of the operation would have lots more spare time which is why they COULD tender for other contracts to fill this time back up.

Lets not forget that as much revenue as a contract can bring in, businesses want to see a return on investment and mainly a profit, businesses aims are always profit maximisation. Therefore if the easyjet contract in bringing back minimal return on large capital investment in both machines and labour, an attempt could be to streamline a business to make it more profitable by reducing the workforce (bearing in mind this alone counts for 70% of costs) and allowing swissport (charter) to become a smaller workforce than before and working on more profitable contracts.

If Menzies do take over EZY at STN will there be room for another handling company on the ramp?

Welcome back - haven't seen you around here for a while

Rumour control suggests new bridges are on the way for 11 / 12 / 13 although they will not arrive until next year (I thought eBay was quicker than that), and the new ones may not go on those stands - ie a swapabout may take place.

Don't imagine some of the long-established companies will be too impressed if EOS try to monopolise the working ones at the moment - although I have seen it on steps quite often recently.

Should you not be on a 'blue' pass now ?

Secure Stansted

After dropping off the inlaws today,and upon reading other airport threads on what it is like elsewhere, just wanted to say how organised, safe and secure it felt at Stansted. Even though access to the drop off area is closed of to Joe public, having the lower drop off area is just as good although slightly conjested.
