Menzies Aviation and Malaysia Airlines reaffirm partnership in Australia and New Zealand

Menzies Aviation has successfully extended a major contract with Malaysia Airlines for a further five years.

Menzies will continue to provide passenger, ramp and cargo services at five locations across Australia and New Zealand, including Sydney Airport (SYD), Melbourne Airport (MEL), Adelaide Airport (ADL), Perth Airport (PER) and Auckland Airport (AKL).

Under the extended agreement, Menzies teams are expected to handle 3200 flights across the five locations each year until 2029. This renewal strengthens the pair’s long-term partnership at these locations, where Menzies has provided a range of services to the Malaysian national flag carrier since 2016.

Darren Masters, Executive Vice President – Oceania & South East Asia, Menzies Aviation, said: “The renewal of this agreement is a reflection on the strong strategic partnership that has developed between Menzies and Malaysia Airlines over the course of eight years. We’re excited to continue providing safe, reliable and efficient services at these five key locations while exploring opportunities to build on our relationship with the flag carrier of Malaysia.”

Aslina Ahmad Asiri, Global Head of Operations, Malaysia Airlines said: “The contract extension is a testament of a great partnership and the trust that MAB has forged with Menzies over the last 8 years. Menzies has always been supportive of MAB operations throughout ANZ region despite the challenges post Covid 19. Menzies has continuously engaged MAB to address these challenges and enforce their utmost commitment to support MAB’s plan to grow the ANZ operations. It is comforting to work with a highly professional entity that understand the business needs and ever willing to listen to feedback from their customers.”
