About Sky Handling Partner
At Sky Handling Partner, we deliver essential aircraft turnaround services to over 20 major airline customers in Dublin, Shannon and London City Airports. Employing 530 staff across three stations, we provide full ground handling solutions for over 2 million passengers and 10,000 tons of cargo annually. With our Head office in Dublin Airport which is also our main base, we were the first Irish registered airport services provider to be granted a Third Party Handling License at Irish airports and we now hold more than 50% of the third party handling market share in Dublin Airport.
Our latest venture sees us welcoming our newest colleagues to the group, Cobalt Ground Solutions Ltd, providing ground handling services in Terminals 3 and 4 at London Heathrow airport. This sees our portfolio of airline customers expand to 30 airlines, incorporating an annual traffic figure of over 4.5 million passengers and 30,000 tons of cargo.
History of Sky Handling Partner
On December 3rd 2000 Sky Handling Partner commenced operations in Dublin Airport as CityJet Handling Ltd. In 2001, the company was acquired by ‘Groupe Crit’ and renamed Sky Handling Partner. From humble beginnings, our reputation and business grew in the following years as a result of successful relationships with both existing and new customer airlines. This lead to the opening of our second base in Shannon Airport in September 2004. Our third base, and first outside Ireland, was opened in London City Airport in October 2011 where we began with 50% of the Passenger Handling market share in that station. Expansion continued there with the acquisition of Aria Logistics in February 2013 and currently we provide services to the majority of airline operators at London City.
