Nov. 3, 2014

Baltic Ground Services is delighted to announce the signing of a cooperation agreement with Travel Service Airlines (Travel Service, a.s.). Based on the terms of the newly signed agreement, the company will provide the Czech charter carrier with integrated ground handling and fuelling services at Vilnius International Airport.

Pursuing the recent expansion of its flight network, this October Travel Service has launched  regular charter flights to Vilnius International Airport. Having chosen Baltic Ground Services as its ground handling partner, every time the carrier lands in or takes off from the airport in the capital of Lithuania, it will receive comprehensive ground handling and fuelling support for its Boeing 737 from the aforementioned provider. The respective contracts have been signed for 3 and 1 years accordingly. Being a major player in the market of charter air transportation in the Czech Republic, Travel Service is currently operating charter flights to and from Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America.

“The market of regular and charter flights across Europe is rapidly growing. As a result, carriers are looking for new destinations to integrate into their already dense activity maps. Lithuania is especially convenient for its handy geographical location to serve clients from both the East and the West. Last August alone the air traffic in Europe increased by 2.4 %, whilst in Vilnius it increased 15% this year. As the competition and demand for ground handling services rose accordingly, we are excited about the fact that a large number of new market players opt for the comprehensive solutions offered by Baltic Ground Services. It comes to show that our company is capable of providing high quality support for optimal prices. After all, it is a highly competitive market, where only the companies which can offer the best value, succeed,” shares Darius Aleknavicius, the CEO of Baltic Ground Services.
