AeroGround Flughafen München GmbH, a ground handling subsidiary of Flughafen München GmbH (FMG), has acquired the established ground handling companies Acciona Airport Services, Berlin GmbH and HSD Flughafen GmbH, effective 1 January 2016.
The new subsidiary AeroGround Berlin purchased 100 per cent of the shares in Acciona Airport Services Berlin from the Spanish parent company Acciona S.A.
The two subsidiaries AeroGround Berlin and Acciona Berlin will be merged in the coming months, the group said. This covers the workforce, the vehicle fleet, all supply and service relationships of Acciona Berlin, and the concession at Berlin Tegel Airport (TXL).
Since being awarded a ground handling licence for Berlin-Schoenefeld Airport (SXF) in July 2015, AeroGround Flughafen München has operated a second ground handling station in the German capital, providing ramp, baggage and passenger handling services in cooperation with the former concession holder Acciona Berlin under a works and services contract.
With the acquisition of Acciona Berlin, with around 350 employees, AeroGround Berlin has acquired the operations at the Berlin Tegel Airport as well as those at Schönefeld. The current ground handling license will also apply at the new Berlin-Brandenburg Airport (BER).
