JOHN Menzies has landed three new aviation contracts with Qatar Airways in Sweden and Denmark.

The Edinburgh-based aviation logistics said it will provide the airline with ground handling, de-icing and lounge services at Stockholm Arlanda, Copenhagen and Gothenburg Landvetter airports. The five-year deal will cover more than 2,000 flights a year, and begins in January, Menzies said.

Chief executive Giles Wilson said: “The addition of a further three stations for Qatar Airways in Scandinavia, represents a major expansion of Menzies Aviation services with this leading global airline.”
