In BHX Azzura Premier Handling have started operating:

Azzurra Handling were the former Alitalia ground handling division in LHR which was sold to the GH Italia Group around 2013.

Glasgow / EGPF

Swissport

Air Canada Rouge
Air France
Air Transat
Albastar
American Airlines
Austrian Airlines
BH Air
Blue Air
Delta Airlines
easyJet
Emirates
Eurowings
KLM
Lufthansa
Ryanair
Thomas Cook Airlines
United Airlines
Virgin Atlantic
Wizz Air

Menzies

Aer Lingus Regional
British Airways
Flybe
Icelandair
Jet2 (Underwing only)
Loganair
Thomsons
Westjet

The only ones not mentioned are cargo and eastern. I'm not 100% on cargo but pretty sure most/all (except BA) are swissport. Eastern is swissport for the IOM flight (until it becomes flybe I guess) Menzies for their flybe flights.

Any mistakes or missed airlines let me know.

I hear Jet2 going self handling next year, let’s hope Menzies can pick up some of the new airline contracts coming STN way...

Jet2 confirmed self handling at both STN and BHX.

That will be LBA, MAN, EMA, BHX & STN in the UK as well as TFS fully self handled.

I've heard negatives. Brand new equipment getting damaged. Bag drop agents must stay at their post- if they called over by passenger they get a telling off. No sitting.
