International support services and construction group, Interserve, has won a facilities services contract worth over £10 million with Globalia’s handling division – Groundforce - to provide aircraft cleaning services for planes across multiple airports in Spain.


The new three-year contract will see Interserve strengthen its relationship with Globalia, Spain’s largest tourism group and owner of Air Europa and the travel agency Halcón Viajes, among others. Interserve will service the interiors of aircraft assisted by Groundforce at three of Spain’s busiest airports: Barcelona-El Prat, Ibiza and Valencia. The company will also continue to provide aircraft services as part of the expanded account at Palma de Mallorca and Alicante airports, where it has been working with Globalia since 2015.


The contract win reinforces Interserve’s strong position in the Spanish transport sector, where it has established a leading presence since the late 1970s. Earlier last month, the company secured a £37 million (€42 million) partnership with airports operator AENA to provide assistance for passengers with reduced mobility at its main destinations in the Canary Islands.


José Luis Garcia Hurtado, general manager at Interserve Spain, said:

“Interserve has provided services for more than 20 million flights throughout Spain. We understand what it takes to help our customers thrive in this dynamic and challenging sector and, most importantly, how to deliver world-class services while meeting the needs of a fast-paced flight schedule.”


Carmen López, managing director at Groundforce, commented:

“Keeping our planes on schedule and making sure they are in flawless condition requires a service provider that can provide efficient services that guarantee quality standards. Interserve has demonstrated that it has the flexibility necessary to get the job done and that it can provide a service that responds to the different needs of our clients. We’re glad to be able to strengthen our relationship with Interserve with the incorporation of some of the most important airports in our network.”
