MASIL going from strength to strength in Baghdad
24 August 2021
Our MASIL joint venture has assumed operational control of passenger services in the Nineveh terminal at Baghdad International Airport.
As part of the 400 strong team already on the ground, 155 MASIL employees will provide passenger services to Iraqi Airways.
The partnership is already delivering a suite of ground handling services to customers including Emirates, Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines, Royal Jordanian, Egypt Air, flydubai and Middle East Airlines.
As part of the long-term strategy for developing the airport’s services, MASIL will further enhance the skills of the local workforce to improve customer experience, safety and security standards, and ensure that operations in Baghdad remain in accordance with the global regulations approved by international aviation organisations.
Charles Wyley, Executive Vice President Middle East, Africa and Asia, said: “We’re delighted that MASIL is going from strength to strength in Baghdad, from the launch of our Cargo Go Live initiative a few months ago to the commencement of passenger service activities. One of the key aims for MASIL is to support the development of Iraqi nationals to assume key positions within the business going forward and we’re pleased to see our advanced training programmes are already underway.”
