Menzies Aviation, the leading service partner to the world’s airports and airlines, and wholly-owned by Kuwait-based Agility company, has been appointed to manage and operate the fuel farm and hydrant fueling system at Houston George Bush InterContinental Airport (IAH) in Houston, Texas.

The long-term contract with the airport’s fuel consortium of airline partners, IAH Fuel Company, will see a dedicated team of almost 40 Menzies employees maintain the facility.

IAH recently undertook a $65 million upgrade of its fueling operations, demonstrating the airport’s commitment to maintaining its world-class aviation infrastructure. This expansion of Menzies’ fueling services portfolio strengthens the company’s position as the largest fuel farm operator in North America. Menzies currently manages 56 facilities across the USA and Canada on behalf of a variety of airline consortiums and airports.
