Aerocare commences handling services with Air Vanuatu

Aerocare last night commenced Air Vanuatu services in Brisbane. Flights between Vanuatu and Brisbane will operate three times per week using Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

Aerocare CEO Glenn Rutherford said: “Aerocare is pleased to enter a new partnership with Vanuatu’s national carrier and looks forward to seamlessly providing a full range of ground services including check-in, ramp and cleaning in Brisbane and Sydney.”

Aerocare will commence Sydney services in February 2017, with five departures per week.

Vanuatu is located around 1,750 km east of Australia, 500 km north-east of New Caledonia, west of Fiji and south of the Solomon Islands. Vanuatu is 2.5 hours flying time North East of Brisbane.

Air Vanuatu was established in early 1981 after Vanuatu gained independence from the United Kingdom and France the previous year.

Aerocare is the largest ground handler within the Australian and New Zealand region, with more than 3,000 team members currently servicing 3,200 flights per week and 41,200 passengers per day.
