Supporting Organisations

ASA - Airport Services Association

The ground handling industry is the foundation of air transport. Ground handlers support passengers throughout every step of the airport journey and are indeed the hidden champions of the sky. Everything we do, below and above wing – from check-in and boarding to aircraft fueling, towing and de-icing makes air travel possible! No plane can take off without us.

Airport Services Association (ASA) is the globally recognized trade association for the independent ground and air cargo handling industry and is the voice of the 1.6 million men and women who service the aircraft on the ground.

At ASA, we are determined to get the message across; independent ground handling service providers (GHSPs) make up over half of this wonderful business, and as such deserve recognition. We are working constantly to strengthen the reputation of the ground handling industry and advance the interests of our sector.

There has never been a better time to join a trade association! In the increasingly complex aviation landscape, ASA unites members to provide a platform where our independent companies can drive change, influence the industry and promote safety and quality at our airports.
