Mitie has extended its contracts with four UK airports, which will see the company deliver essential cleaning, waste, technical and security and baggage screening services.
Mitie began working at London Stansted Airport in 2008, where it delivers hold baggage screening (HBS) services.
Its contract has been extended three times since the beginning of the relationship and Mitie has now signed a new two-year contract to continue providing these essential services.
As well as operating the screening equipment, Mitie’s trained security agents provide an extra layer of scrutiny and judgment to the screening process.
Mitie has also extended its long-standing relationship with George Best Belfast City Airport, having been awarded a three-year contract to provide security services at the site.
The company has worked closely with the airport since 2015 to enhance its security operations.
Mitie will continue delivering services, from passenger and hold baggage screening to patrolling and essential ad-hoc security operations.
It will also introduce enhanced training, specifically on supporting passengers requiring special assistance, enabling colleagues to provide a high standard of customer service.
Manchester Airports Group (MAG) has also extended its contract with Mitie for a further two years to continue delivering essential cleaning and technical services at Manchester and East Midlands airports. The contract originally began in 2016.
Manchester Airport welcomed over 25 million passengers this year, with a further three million at East Midlands, making it crucial to maintain a clean environment.
To support this, Mitie also delivers technical services at the sites, carrying out reactive and pre-planned maintenance on heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC), electrical systems, doors, drains and fire alarms, as well as water hygiene.
“These new contracts are testament to our colleagues’ dedication to deliver exceptional services and enhanced passenger experiences across these airports, underpinning our status as a leading provider in the aviation sector,” said Jason Towse, Managing Director, Business Services, Mitie.
“We look forward to supporting the journeys of the millions of passengers travelling through terminals at Manchester, East Midlands, Stansted and Belfast as we head into the busy summer months and beyond.”
