Servisair: Adria, Aer Arann, Aer Lingus, Air India, Air Slovakia, Brussels Airlines, Continental, Croatia, easyJet, Emirates, European Air Charter, Freebird, Futura, Jet2.com, Norwegian, Onur Air, Ryanair, SkyEurope, Thomsonfly, Viking Airlines, XL Airways
Swissport: Air Malta, Air Transat, Cyprus Airways, Eurocypria, First Choice Airways, flybe., FlyGlobespan, LTE, Monarch, MyTravel, PIA, Pegasus, SunExpress, Swiss, Turkmenistan
????: Centralwings, KoralBlue Airlines, Turkish Airlines

Anyone have any info on any other base?

MAN

MAN

SAS currently handle airblue and libyan airlines

Menzies handle central wings

Servisair handle European

No idea about Estonian Air, not heard of them at MAN. I think SAS is withdrawing from MAN (handling agent) so not sure who/what will happen to the airlines above, they also handle KLM. Please correct anything if wrong.

Unhappy FirstChoice / Thomsonfly

Announced yesterday at Gatwick that from 16th April 2008 Servisair will no longer handle Thomsonfly .
Contract combined with Firstchoice Airlines will be handled by Swissport from the North Terminal from that date

Another one bites the dust !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GLA: Aviance also handle Air Contractors (FedEx). GLA-STN-DUB & GLA-MAN-CDG (ATR72s).

BHX: Aviance have also handled the odd Air Mediterranee ad hoc (corporate) charter (A321) at T2. FedEx do self-handling (ATR72).

Cheers

BHX Swissport still handle MYT, well for another few weeks any. Air Contractors are handled by Servisair when working for Fedex and Swissport when not (very confusing).

The MYT 320 doesn't operate to MIR at the moment for MYT or TCX, although it does seem to fly at bit more often than the FCA 757. And the split in work is pretty straight forward, MYT flight number handled by Swissport and TCX by Aviance no matter who's a/c it is.

Oh it's just that the TCX745K/L is sched to operate on an A320 from the 10th Feb and as TCX no longer have any A320's I take it it will be a MYT one.
