The Airport and Aviation services (Sri Lanka) (Private) Limited (AASL) marked another historical milestone by launching its own Ground Handling Services Training Wing at the Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport (MRIA) with the aim of providing ground handling services for international flight operations.
The AASL ground handling service at MRIA was launched by providing its ground handling services to domestic airlines with incoming passengers.
The ground handling staff successfully handled the ground operations according to international standards meeting all regulatory requirements and provided all the services as required.
This new ground handling team comprises employees who possess relevant ground handling experience and the team has been given the necessary skill and other mandatory training to achieve the highest level of performance while handling aircraft on the ground.
By launching the service, the AASL will be able to contribute to increase the aeronautical revenue component of AASL and this is a timely move in this challenging and changing business environment.
Currently, AASL provides ground handling services at Colombo International Airport, Ratmalana (CIAR) and Jaffna International Airport (JIA) for the domestic and international airlines.
With this move, AASL will be able to provide ground handling services at Mattala in the future and the service will be extended to the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) for international operations too.
The new training wing was launched with the participation of AASL Chairman Major Gen. (Rtd.) G.A. Chandrasiri, other senior officers and other key institutions.
