Menzies Aviation and MYAirline form joint venture in Malaysia

Menzies Aviation, the leading service partner to the world’s airports and airlines, has agreed a joint venture with MYAirline to establish a ground services company in Malaysia.

As part of the new partnership, Menzies will provide ground services at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) initially serving MYAirline at Terminal 2. KUL will be Menzies’ first location in Malaysia, where there are opportunities for growth and expansion as the aviation sector continues its Covid-19 pandemic recovery.
