Winair signs ground handling concession with SXM airport

Winair has been granted a full Ground Handling Concession by SXM Airport, making Winair the second ground handler in St. Maarten.

Ground handling is commonly referred to as under the wing services, which includes baggage loading and off-loading, delivery of baggage to baggage carousels, Aircraft push back, lavatory services and water services.
“ Winair is proud to have been granted this concession, allowing us to compete in providing services to all users of SXM airport on a economic and service based scenario” stated Michael Cleaver, President & CEO of Winair.

Winair’s thanks goes out to SXM Airport, in particular Mr. Larry Donker, PJIAE Management and PJAIE Supervisory board. This concession is the result of two and a half years of negotiation between the Airport and Winair. Through granting this second Ground Handling Concession users of SXM Airport now have a choice in selecting this important and essential component of their airport operations in St. Maarten.
