EasyJet Gatwick contract extension
20 March 2023
Rushlift GSE has won a 56-month extension to its long-running ground support equipment contract with EasyJet.
OVER 570 ground support assets will be managed by Rushlift GSE under a progressive programme including an on-going transition from diesel to electric vehicles. As part of this programme Rushlift is in the process of introducing eight Mallaghan bendi-belts, an advanced electric powered baggage conveyor that has the ability to bend through 90 deg, delivering bags deep into the baggage hold. The investment will help to reduce turn-around times, ease demands on staff and reduce manual handling strain.
As under the existing contract, Rushlift GSE will supply, maintain and support a wide variety of vehicles of different manufacture, along with related handling equipment – from TLD push-back tugs, TBL tractors, electric baggage tugs and baggage carts, to steps, low loaders, belt loaders, ground power units and vans.
