I remember back to when Aviance bought out MAS and there was major disputes arising with the unions with regard to the difference in pay (MAS was a lot higher) and from what I understand AGS is higher still.

Jersey Route

Rumour has it Aurigny are looking at starting the Jersey route again.

it would seem a bit odd but with new ATR 72s joining the fleet they are looking at expanding and finding new routes or restarting ones they dropped before?

When Atlantic Express operated last year the load factors were heading to wards the 50% mark and looking bright for the forth comming summer.

Well if this does happen lots of competition on the London area routes as Thompson starts doing a daily Luton from Jersey shortly so would a Jersey-Stansted work or not?

Servisair STN getting easyjet!!

I've just heard that servisair at STN are getting Easyjet as from the start of the summer season, apparently it's to do with swissport having alot of airside accidents,and also they handle it at every other airport.

EasyJet are not handled by Servisair everywhere in the UK. As far as I'm aware, it is only at Bristol, Liverpool, London Gatwick and East Midlands in the UK where they're still handled by Servisair, everywhere else it's either aviance or Menzies.

Please please please, there has been so many rumours with handling agents all changing at Stansted and its all getting a bit carried away. Firstly Easyjet have signed a four year contract with swissport and so by my calculations there is still around two years left on this contract.
And secondly, 'airside accidents' like what?? ok maybe a set of steps or something but I think your a bit rash by implying there are loads

So really unless there has been a breach of contract in a major way then i doubt very much that easyjet will be handled by servisair for at least another two years. Maybe gatebird would be kind and try to expand a bit further in terms of who told you? are they in a position likely to have this info? how will the transition happen if at all? Great rumour though il give you full marks for that

Air Berlin and Servisair

Confirmed by a Servisair manager this week, Air Berlin are not moving across to Aviance. As for AGS well they are still going. The rumour about easyJet being handled by Servisair I will believe it the day I walk into the airport and be given an orange uniform and told to go and check an easyJet flight in.

in reply to you post xxx5572, Contracts dont really mean much these days, they could break that anytime they wished.

I would say, writing off a servisair tug, then hitting 2 jetbridges with the same set of steps, trying to write off A10 jetbridge twice in the same week counts as quite a few to me! I could go on but that would be boring........

I heard the rumor from a member of airport staff who should know a thing or two about who's going to be handling who.

Im sorry Gate bird but i really dont agree there with your comment about contracts. A contract no matter how big or small is legally binding and cannot just be terminated like that. Im sure you would have something to say if it involved your job. I dont claim to be an expert but believe that for Ezy to termintate a contract with swissport it would be similar to a disciplinary procedure. If and an incident occured directly involved with ezy and one of their aircraft then a warning could be issued, if problems or incidents carried on and Ezy were again affected then they would issue a notice to swissport giving them a certain number of days to rectify the situation and only after then could they consider terminating the contract. Your views again seem very rash and have little substance to argue your point. And with the very good list of incidents none of them seem to involve any ezy aircraft directly so on what basis do ezy want to terminate the contract. And im sure many people at the airport know i thing or two about who handles who but i doubt they know what is going on with all handling agents and airlines. But then again you could prove me wrong by expanding in more detail about your rumour to see if it is more than just that.

If anyone knows a bit more on contracts then feel free to expand on my version

termination

excuse me people,but if a company wishes to terminate a contract they would simply give notice ie 90 days to the 2nd party citing valid reasons and THAT WOULD BE IT!!!Seems to me that easyjet have ample reasons to do just THAT.Anyone who thinks different is naive in the extreme.

How servisair will cope with them remains to be seen.
