Alliance Ground International (AGI) has named industry veteran Olivier Bijaoui as an Advisor as it looks to expand into Europe.

Bijaoui, who was the CEO of Worldwide Flight Services until June 2016, and has been a prominent figure in the ground handling industry for well over 30 years, will advise AGI on the next phase of its expansion strategy to develop passenger and cargo handling operations outside North America.

In 2017, Bijaoui, along with Pablo Garcia, former WFS CEO Spain, and Ricardo Bagen, former WFS General Manager Spain, set up IAS Handling, providing cargo handling services in Barcelona and Madrid.

In 2018, he became a major shareholder in Paris CDG-based France Cargo Handling, which took over Swissport Cargo’s handling activities in France.

Jared Azcuy, CEO of AGI, says, “This is an exciting development for us to fulfil our desire to expand our service offerings beyond North America. Olivier’s expansive experience in the international airport services market will be invaluable to our growth trajectory.”

Bijaoui adds, “AGI’s investment and growth in North America has been very impressive and I look forward to help mirror its success in Europe and beyond.”
