Menzies rolls out telematics at LAX

Comment on this article

Menzies Aviation is investing in state-of-the-art telematics equipment at Los Angeles International as it celebrates over 35 years of operations at the US airport.

The rollout of vehicle and GSE telematics in the second quarter of 2019 will drive higher safety standards and improved equipment utilisation at the station - Menzies’ largest in the Americas region.

Further improvements in the management of both equipment and staff allocation are being driven with the real-time rostering and resourcing application, Workbridge, due to be deployed before the end of the year.

This milestone comes following Menzies’ recent commitment to a five-year extension on its cargo facility lease at LAX, where it serves airlines such as Norwegian Air Shuttle and Air China. It also recently announced the renewal of its contract with Air China Cargo and the renewal of a contract with the City of Los Angeles for maintenance and technical services at Terminal 6 for the next 12 months.

Menzies has also formed a partnership with Los Angeles World Airports, aimed at improving safety and quality for both Menzies employees and airline customers, to set the highest standards of employer practice and airport services.

Further investments in its local team include the recent introduction of a new management structure, with the appointment of Senior Vice President for the West Region, Joe Conlon, and General Manager at LAX, Mike Demeritt.

Paul Walton, VP Sales & Commercial, commented: “The extension of our cargo facility lease underlines our commitment to LAX, as we extend our relationships with major airlines at the airport.

“Our new partnership with LAWA and recent contract renewals with Air China and the City of Los Angeles, demonstrate the confidence of our customers in our service offering, and the new technologies we are investing in this year will only enhance our ability to support their businesses."

Menzies provides passenger, ground and cargo handling at LAX, performing 30,000 aircraft turns and handling 80,000 tonnes of cargo each year. It also provides into-plane fuelling and fuel farm management to over 50 airlines at the airport, pumping 2bn gallons of fuel to 120,000 flights annually.
