Babcock International Group PLC
: 26 March, 2013  (Application Story)
British Airways has given preferred bidder status to Babcock International for ground fleet maintenance work

Babcock International has been awarded preferred bidder status on contracts to provide ground fleet maintenance to British Airways (BA) and baggage handling systems operations and maintenance for Heathrow Airport Limited (HAL).

The contracts, worth a combined total in the order of £440 million, will become effective in the first half of the next financial year. Both contracts are for five years and there is an option to extend the contract with HAL for a further two years.

Following the award of the contract with HAL, Babcock will be responsible for the operations and maintenance of all baggage handling systems across the Heathrow campus.  In addition to previous activities at Terminal 1 and 4, Babcock is taking on the maintenance and support of baggage systems at Terminals 3 and 5. Subject to final contract signature, Babcock will continue to be responsible for the maintenance of BA's ground support equipment fleet at Heathrow, including de-icing units, passenger buses, scissor lifts and pushback tractors.

Peter Rogers, Chief Executive of Babcock, commented: "We are delighted to have been successful in these two rebids and to be expanding the scope of services we provide to Heathrow Airport Limited. The two awards reflect our proven ability to provide complex and critical mobile asset management and equipment support. We look forward to further enhancing our strong working relationship with both Heathrow Airport Limited and British Airways."
