From February 1, 2019, OmniServ (operating as Blue Handling) will provide all of Ryanair’s check-in, baggage and ground operations handling at London Stansted Airport, Ryanair’s largest base with more than 40 aircraft and 200 daily departures.
OmniServ will replace Swissport at Stansted, who will continue to handle Ryanair’s operations at 40 other airports across the UK and Europe. All current Swissport staff at Stansted will be offered contracts with OmniServ to minimize disruptions.
Adrian Dunne, director of operations, Ryanair, said, “We are pleased to award our London Stansted handling contract to OmniServ, which will operate as Blue Handling.
“We look forward to working with both OmniServ and Stansted Airport to improve the customer experience and punctuality for the 21 million Ryanair customers who will travel through the airport this year.
“We sincerely thank Swissport for their services provided at Stansted, and will continue to work with them at more than 40 other airports.”
Antony Marke, managing director, OmniServ, said, “We are very excited to expand our strategic partnership with Ryanair to provide ground handling resource at Stansted Airport. With one of the industry’s largest aviation service portfolios, OmniServ, which is part of ABM Aviation, is uniquely positioned to provide best-in-class service and innovative solutions to airports and airlines around the globe.”
