Wizz Air awards MGH with HUF 5 bln contract
Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air has signed a five-year contract worth HUF 5 bln with state-owned Malév Ground Handling (MGH) to supply the airline with ground services at Budapest’s Liszt Ferenc International Airport, it was announced today (October 6). The new contract extends a business relationship that started in November 2012.
Wizz Air CEO József Váradi said that MGH had been awarded the contract because it offered the highest quality service at the best price. “Wizz Air’s aim is to serve its passengers efficiently at the highest standards, and MGH will be an excellent partner in reaching this aim,” the CEO said. The company was chosen following a six-month tender process in which international firms like Celebi and Menzies Aviation also participated.
“The five-year contract ensures the developing efficiency of Malév,” MGH CEO Ervin Nemes said.
