With this loss of AF, it only leaves them with BA, GB (for now - not heard any different on EZY contract), SN, BGN, and DL (altought this may become Swissport)

Do we think the EZY(GB) contract will stay with aviance, or perhaps go to another agent? If not they will be left with only three (four if they're lucky) airlines and although BA is a fairly big contract will this warrant them keeping a base open at MAN?

I would of thought that BA + BMi are two of the biggest carriers at the airport. So in movement terms (and revenue) making Aviance one of the biggest agents ????

FedEx (self-)handle the Air Contractors/FedEx ATR72. (Servisair lost the handling contract over a year ago). Swissport are contracted to provide handling only on bank holidays when FedEx BHX are off.

Seem to recall that Air Malta switched to Alitalia Airport Services back in November (their first contract in T4).

Heathrow Handling post T5

I've updated my Heathrow website with current handling agents and also post T5 moves. As always it's difficult to keep track of the changes, so any further updates always welcome. The Terminal moves are a "best guess" drawn from a variety of forums, blogs, and articles etc and is subject to change.

Aer Lingus
Air France (incorporating Scot Airways/Cityjet)
Onur Air
Air Transat
First Choice
Travel Service
Air Mediterranee
European Air Transport (DHL) (cargo)


bmi (ramp)
bmi baby (ramp)
SAS (ramp)
Lufthansa (ramp)
Wideroe (ramp)
Air Europa
British Airways


Star Air/Maersk/UPS (cargo)
TNT (cargo)
Europe Airpost (cargo)


bmi (passenger services)
bmi baby (passenger services)
