FCC commences operations at the Lieja Airport (Belgium)

Flightcare, the FCC subsidiary specialising in ramp, passenger and cargo services at airports, and the multinational Transporte Urgente TNT have signed a cooperation agreement whereunder Flightcare will provide passenger handling services at the Lieja Airport (Belgium).

Two of the objectives of this cooperative effort include costs savings and adapting the services to passengers' demands to reduce the time they spend at airports on both departure and arrival.

For the first time, airlines at this airport will have the opportunity to choose a service provider to cover their handling needs and to respond to passenger inquiries on check-in.

With this agreement, Flightcare will expand its operations at Belgium's leading airports, where it currently operates in Brussels and Ostende.

In Belgium, Flightcare has become the leading handling agent in Brussels through its subsidiary BGS, after renewing its operating license for an additional seven years last March. At the beginning of the year, FCC was awarded a handling contract at the Ostende-Brujas international airport to provide ground services, as the second operator, including ramp, passenger and cargo services, also for seven years.

The forecasts call for revenues of close to 800 million euros in this country over the next seven years.

In Spain it operates at airports in Barcelona, Bilbao, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Las Palmas, Málaga, Santiago de Compostela, Sevilla and Valencia.

In the year 2004, Flightcare rendered its services to more than 120 airline companies, serving 38 million passengers and 175,000 flights and handling more than 205,000 tons of cargo.
