MacroAsia Airport Services Corporation (MASCORP) commenced operations at the NAIA on April 19, 1999 to provide aircraft ground handling resources for commercial passenger, cargo and military aircrafts.
MASCORP was originally a joint venture between MAC and Ogden Aviation Philippines B.V. (formerly Ogden Water Systems of Muscat B.V.). In 2001, Menzies Aviation Group acquired Ogden Aviation Philippines B.V. Subsequently, on April 12, 2007, MASCORP became a wholly-owned subsidiary with MAC’s acquisition of the 30% share of Menzies Aviation Group when the latter divested its investments in the Philippines as part of its global strategy to refocus its attention to its major global ventures.
MASCORP has lived up to its vision of being the preferred ground handling and airport services company in the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. As a manifestation of this achievement, the company was given the highest recognition of SIA which is the Chief Executive Officer (Transforming Customer Service) Award given in elaborate rites on 27 May 2010 in Singapore. Also it has maintained a stable and growing service partnership with Thai Airways, Korean Air, PAL Express, Air Philippines, Japan Airlines and China Airlines.
2010 Performance Results
The year began with the airline industry still reeling from the downturn of 2009 and foreign airlines saw a reduction in their flight volumes as airline routes were rationalized to cope with the travel downturn.
In spite of the expected revenue decline from its client portfolio of 2009, MASCORP was able to perform positively through operational efficiencies and acquisition of non-scheduled accounts (Air Asia X, Virgin Atlantic, Air North, Turkish Air, Star Flyer to name a few) throughout 2010 and further strengthened its ties with Lufthansa Technik Philippines. Air Niugini joined the company's list of clients in September 1, 2010. Also in this year, the expansion in Cebu took off with its first international carrier, Korean Air. The new client acquisitions more than made up for the loss in revenues coming from the departure of SIA.
As a result, MASCORP turned in a modest profit almost equivalent to its 2009 profitability whilst at the same time, streamlining its operations in passenger and ramp services department.
Notwithstanding the challenges made in 2010, the company is upbeat and in positive mood to start the new year.
MASCORP continued its quest to secure the contracts of its current clients (JAL, THAI, KAL, CAL, Air Phil Express and Air Nuigini), this despite the ever-present threat posed by the four competitors in Manila.
The brightest prospect was the scheduled entry of All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s current largest airliner, in 28 Feb 2011 at the NAIA Terminal 3. ANA has made known its desire to operate daily flights out of Terminal 3 and has explicitly picked MASCORP to help them make this happen.
Looking forward, the company having achieved the best quality service reputation in the industry, coupled with a solid client base, 2011 is expected to be the most productive year for the company in its 13 year history.
