Having joined the IATA’s Ground Handling Council (IGHC), Baltic Ground Services, an international provider of ground handling and fuelling services, is now a proud member of the global platform uniting over 300 aviation industry players seeking to promote positive changes in the ground handling market.
In mid-January 2015 the international forum of airlines, ground service providers and airports confirmed the company’s readiness to join the platform designed to address the challenges and opportunities of the global ground handling market. As a member of the IGHC, Baltic Ground Services will have opportunity to actively discuss and participate in the decision making process under the following IGHC’s specialised Task Forces: Aviation Ground Service Agreement (AGSA); Load Control and Aircraft Messaging (LCAM); Ground Support Equipment and Environmental Management (GSEE); IATA Ground Operations Manual (IGOM); Airside Safety Group (ASG).
“Being Europe’s first ground handler certified as an ISAGO organization, we aim at promoting the highest safety standards and the best GH practices across the region.. I believe that the experience that we have gathered whilst working with clients from both the developed and the emerging markets over the years will be of great benefit in the process of developing new standards and solutions to the industry’s most pressing issues. After all, aviation is all about joining efforts in achieving common goals,” commented Darius Aleknavicius, the CEO of Baltic Ground Services.
