Air Vanuatu yesterday announced that it has selected its long-term codeshare partner Qantas to provide Ground Handling Services at Sydney International Airport, effective Friday 28th February 2020.

This extension of the two airlines’ partnership means Qantas will now staff passenger and ramp handling operations at all Australian departure airports on behalf of Air Vanuatu.

Melbourne and Brisbane International Airport ground handling has been managed by Qantas for some time now.
