Renaissance Aviation & WFS Partnership

November 22, 2011

Renaissance Aviation and Worldwide Flight Services [WFS] have signed what they termed a  ”strategic partnership” in Bermuda, in which WFS will provide management oversight of Renaissance Aviation’s ramp and passenger business at Bermuda’s L.F. Wade International Airport. It will also offer technical assistance, training and administrative support.

Renaissance Aviation was formed in November 2009 and is a full service ground handler which specializes in above wing and below wing operations as well as engineering and maintenance services.

Renaissance Aviation’s current customers include American Airlines, AirTran, Air Canada, British Airways, CargoJet, Continental Airlines, Delta Airlines, jetBlue, US Airways, Westjet, and the Bermuda Department of Airport Operations.

Glenn A. Rutkowski, Senior Vice President, Passenger Terminal Services North America for WFS, said: “We welcome our new relationship with Renaissance Aviation. Both companies are totally committed to the success of our new strategic partnership and we will also be looking at other opportunities for co-operation in the future.

“For contracted airline customers in Bermuda, we promise the highest quality service levels that combine all of the strengths of WFS’ international experience with the excellent local knowledge and personnel of Renaissance Aviation. This is a golden opportunity for both companies.”

Nick Faries, General Manager of Renaissance Aviation, added: “Air travel is critically important to Bermuda, and as a local company supporting this industry we owe it to our stakeholders to provide nothing less than world class service. We are therefore very excited to be bringing to Bermuda the benefits of this partnership with WFS, who are a proven international leader in aviation services.

“This important agreement gives Renaissance Aviation the ability to draw on WFS’ processes, expertise and relationships for the benefit of all of our airlines customers as well as the travelling public.

“From the very beginning we were also looking for a partner who would best support the development of our employees, and now they will have many new opportunities to advance their skills and industry expertise. We see in this partnership a bright future for both of our organizations as well as for the Bermuda commercial aviation passenger.”
