ISS has retained its security services contract at Melbourne and Launceston Airports with Australia Pacific Airports Corporation.
The new four-year deal is ISS’ largest aviation security contract globally, in which ISS directly employs more than 600 employees at Melbourne Airport in Victoria and Launceston Airport in Tasmania.
ISS has worked in partnership with Australia Pacific Airports Corporation (APAC) at Melbourne Airport since 2002 and at Launceston Airport since 2014, servicing millions of passengers passing through the two airports in 2016.
Scott Davies, Country Manager for ISS Australia & New Zealand, said: “We have provided services to APAC for more than 16 years and were therefore able to deliver a solution based on a deep understanding of their needs now and into the future. We are committed to provide APAC with even greater efficiencies, lower risk and improved security outcomes across their airports.”
ISS provides security screening services for six out of Australia’s 10 biggest airports and screens over 45 million passengers on over 330,000 flights each year, ensuring compliance and mitigating risk for aviation customers.
