Under the 10-year concession, Çelebi Aviation will provide state of the art ground handling services to make customer experience at the city airport seamless. The contract was won on the basis of a highly competitive bidding process that assessed technical and financial qualifications of multiple global ground handling players who participated in the bid. Under the partnership, Çelebi plans to make an investment of USD 5-6 million.
With this win, Çelebi has committed to partner with RGIA to offer modern and technologically-backed services to over 20 million passengers. Capitalizing on its global expertise, Çelebi would ensure safe, efficient and environment friendly provisions at the airport. The company’s vision of being the front runner in terms of technology, service excellence and customer centricity aligns well with that of RGIA.
Expressing his views on the development, Murali Ramachandran, CEO - India, Çelebi Aviation Holding said, “The year gone by was a very important year for Çelebi as it marked the 10thanniversary of our India operations. Our partnership with RGIA is an important benchmark in our decade long journey as it sets another milestone towards our efforts of strengthening our presence and commitment in the India aviation market. Being well set for a major growth path in the aviation space, India is a key market for us. With our focused and strategic expansion plans, we stand committed to contribute, support and play a meaningful role in catalysing the growth story of the Indian aviation sector.”
In India, Çelebi is currently present across India’s top three airports - Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore, and has the capability to service close to 50 percent of aviation traffic in the country.
The company also has operations in Cochin, Ahmedabad and has recently started offering its services at the Kannur International Airport that started its operations in December 2018.
