AHS and AeroGround join hands to beat competition at Berlin Airports
18 May, 2018: Ground handling companies AHS BERLIN Aviation Handling Services and AeroGround Berlin have agreed on a long-term strategic cooperation at Berlin Airports. The two German companies are pursuing the common goal of creating synergies and strengthening their market position as they face intense competitive pressure from global players.
AHS is a major player in Germany among the independent providers of passenger handling and operations services. At the Berlin location, AHS operates both at Tegel Airport and in Schoenefeld. AeroGround Berlin also holds the licenses for ground handling services at both airports, including the new Berlin-Brandenburg airport. AeroGround Berlin's range of services focuses on land and airside aircraft and baggage handling. The companies operate in a dynamic market with low margins.
"Our main focus is on cost optimisation and joint sales activities. In addition, together with AeroGround we can now cover the entire range of ground handling services," says Tays Breckerbohm, managing director of AHS BERLIN Aviation Handling Services.
Meanwhile, Christian Stoschek, managing director of AeroGround Berlin, adds, "We are very pleased about the future steps with a successful and professional partner like AHS at our side. The synergy effects will strengthen our two companies in Berlin."
