MITIE Group plc has extended its partnership to provide hold baggage screening (HBS) and immigration presentation services at Heathrow Airport Terminals 1, 2, 3 and 4.
The contract is worth approximately £6 million per annum, with Heathrow’s Terminal 2 now being added to MITIE’s security remit at the location.
Over 300 staff will be working under MITIE’s Total Security Management (TSM) business, which was first awarded the contract for Terminal 3 in 1997.
In 2011, Terminals 1 and 4 were added and a three-year extension to the contract signed.
The immigration presentation services MITIE also delivers at Heathrow Airport will contribute an additional £700,000 each year, and see 50 more specialist staff working on site.
Bob Forsyth, managing director of MITIE’s TSM business, said: “I’m delighted to have extended our close working relationship with the Heathrow AOC and its members. Our specialist aviation team goes from strength to strength in the sector.”
Forsyth concluded: “We look forward to working with our clients at Heathrow and its partners to ensure airline and airport safety for what is one of the busiest airports in Europe.”
