Air Partner Enters Australian Market with Redline Contract Win with ISS Australia and New Zealand
Air Partner, the global aviation services group, is pleased to announce that it has entered the Australian market through its security business Redline, which has been appointed to develop and deliver a robust Security Management System (SeMS) for ISS Australia and New Zealand ("ISS"). The system will be the first of its kind in Australia, enhancing ISS's security services across its aviation and transport activities.
ISS is one of Australia's largest facility services providers, delivering security, screening and facility services across airports and ports in every Australian state. Redline's SeMS focuses on all aspects of security activity, supporting management at all levels within an organisation. All security tasks, such as quality assurance activity, training performance and audits, are fed into the system, instantly highlighting any exposed vulnerabilities. This allows managers to maintain control of risk in an ever-changing threat environment.
This SeMS project further adds to Redline's impressive list of new appointments this year, which includes business wins with Aéroport Nice Côte d'Azur, international facilities management company OCS Group UK, the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), private aviation company Jet Edge, and Align JV to support on a HS2 project.
Mark Briffa, CEO of Air Partner, said: "We are delighted to have entered the Australian market in line with our ambition to invest in organic growth opportunities. It is encouraging to see Redline continuing to win business in the aviation sector around the world, despite the challenges imposed by COVID-19. It is a testament to the hard work of the team and the quality of services we offer that businesses of ISS's calibre routinely rely on Redline to fulfil their varied security requirements."
Paul Mason, Managing Director of Air Partner's Safety & Security division, added: "ISS will be the first company in Australia to develop and roll out this type of Security Management System and we're delighted to be driving the project. We look forward to continuing to work with ISS to establish its security activities as the gold standard."
