Universal Aviation, the ground support division of Universal Weather and Aviation, has added its 10th ground handling location

in Spain in Menorca, to be operated in partnership with Andalucia Aviation. The location will remain branded Andalucia Aviation locally but will now fall under the Universal Aviation network.

This addition expands a previous partnership between Universal Aviation and Andalucia Aviation. In January 2022, the two companies partnered at six ground handling locations including; Almeria, Ciudad Real, Granada, Jerez, Malaga and Sevilla. Those locations joined existing Universal Aviation Spain locations in Madrid, Barcelona and Girona, giving the network a total of 10 locations in Spain and 23 total in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

“The Balearic Islands are one of the most popular and beautiful leisure destinations in the world,” says UA Spain general manager Gonzalo Barona Jr. “The island destinations are seeing record-setting volumes. Based on the overwhelming success of our partnership with Andalucia Aviation, established earlier this year, we saw an opportunity to follow that model to work together to raise service levels, enhance facilities, reduce handoffs and drive down risk at Menorca.”

The team at Universal Aviation Spain is fluent in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, Catalan and Menorquin. Facilities include a dedicated GA ramp, onsite CIQ, crew and passenger lounges and a prayer room.

“Despite the high traffic volumes and immense popularity of Menorca, on average, we can facilitate turnarounds in 35-40 minutes,” adds Barona.

Universal Aviation Spain has been providing ground handling services in Spain for nearly 40 years.
