EAS does it by keeping its feet on the ground

Posted 8 March 2018 · Add Comment

For more than a quarter-of-a-century Egyptian Aviation Services (EAS) has been playing a vital ground-handling role at Egyptís major airports.

Today it serves Cairo, Alexandria, Luxor, Sharm-el-Sheik and now the new airport at Marsa Alam, in which it holds a 50% shareholding along with Kuwait’s Kharafi Group.
“We have an impressive list of customers and have a good relationship with them,” said chairman and managing director, General Mohamed Kamel Mostafa.
EAS has won gold awards from British Airways as best performing station and best information provider, and reached the five crown awards for KLM for three consecutive years.
General Kamel said the company had also been developing its capabilities with private aviation as well.
“We manage two VIP lounges at Cairo Terminal Two and have been working with Saudi Arabian private aviation companies as well. We have a three-pronged approach to what we do – security, safety and quality.”
Kamel said that security remained a major priority in Egyptian airports, adding that the systems were solid. However, he urged that investment should continue. “It affects everyone in our industry,” he said.
EAS owns more than 2,000 ground-handling equipment pieces and has its own maintenance workshops, a contributor to the impressive on-time performances achieved by the company, according to its chairman.
Holding the International Air Transport Association (IATA) safety audit of ground operations (ISAGO) certification, EAS is also training others and intends to raise the levels of expertise both within the company and externally.
“We plan to open up job opportunities in the new and military airports being used for civil aviation through our Marsa Alam partnership,” said General Kamel “We will also open areas of the security service training in the light of increasing demand for security procedures applied at airports.”
