Icelandair Ground Services
Icelandair ground service
IGS provides aircraft ground handling services for passengers and aircraft, a first-class flight kitchen and bonded stores, a new state-ofthe- art cargo centre and a restaurant division at Keflavik International Airport. IGS also produces meals and services for off-airport companies and schools. All these units are organised and represented in the company accounts as profit units.
IGS competes with two other suppliers of ground handling services at Keflavík Airport. Icelandair is by far the biggest client of IGS, but the company has contracts with other airlines for ground handling services and catering. The turnover has grown in 2006 in all its business units. New markets have opened up, such as restaurant operations for schools and companies outside the Icelandair Group. Future growth is expected in that area.
IGS has contracts with most airlines using Keflavik Airport and aims to maintain its market share. Opportunities for growth go hand in hand with the expected growth in the number of passengers passing through the airport. New restaurants will be opened in the Leifur Eiriksson air terminal in the spring of 2007 which will meet the anticipated passenger growth in the coming years. The company will achieve ISO 9001 certification in the year 2007, which will underline the high quality and standards of the company’s services.
