Birmingham Airport introduces second ground handling company

Birmingham Airport has welcomed Azzura Premiere Handling to its ground handling capabilities, which will add support at check-in, boarding, push back, baggage handling and aircraft cleaning.

Azzurra Premiere Handling was recently formed by a link-up between Premiere Handling of Manchester and Azzurra Handling at London Heathrow, and is already serving bmi regional and Brussels Airlines at Birmingham.

Julian van Helder, director at Premiere Handling, said, “We are delighted about forming this partnership with Azzurra who have a reputation for very high quality at London Heathrow and will focus on creating a handling operation that will create a great passenger experience for our airline customers.

“Our objective is to provide a great service to airlines that use Birmingham and we have been able to recruit some excellent and highly experienced staff.”

Vittorio Mazza, director of Azzurra, commented, “We are delighted to be working with Brussels Airlines and bmi regional who will be operating up to 16 flights a week to destinations including Graz, Gothenburg and Nuremberg.

“It is also excellent that we have been able to safeguard and create jobs and so make a contribution to the economy of Birmingham and the West Midlands.”
