Menzies expands in Latin America
Menzies Aviation will be expanding in Latin America, by introducing ground and air cargo services to Chile and Costa Rica.
In Costa Rica, Menzies has been awarded licenses to operate ground services at Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO), the country’s largest airport and primary airport for international travellers, and at Liberia Guanacaste Airport (LIR).
Additionally, Menzies is expanding its portfolio at SJO with a cargo facility in partnership with Terminales Unidas (TUSA).
Menzies is the only aviation services provider operating in SJO Costa Rica which offers the full suite of ground, air cargo, and security services, and plans on developing and growing all three of the services at airports across the country.
In Chile, following the acquisition of a controlling stake in Agunsa Aviation Services last year, Menzies Agunsa has now secured permits which enables it to provide air cargo services to the market.
John Redmond, EVP Americas, Menzies Aviation said: “We have experienced rapid growth in Latin America over recent years where we have grown our operations from two countries in 2019 to six. We now have operations across Mexico, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Chile. We are very excited about these latest additional opportunities in Costa Rica and Chile, and look forward to further strengthening our network in this attractive market.”
The recently formed Menzies Agunsa partnership will operate a 65,000ft² on-airport cargo warehouse at Santiago de Chile Airport (SCL), which can handle import cargo and courier products.
