We provide a full spectrum of ground handling solutions for airlines seeking high quality ground services at London Heathrow Airport, who choose us because we go the extra mile. We put ultimate focus and consistency in safe, on time departures, while integrating all aspects of ground handling to deliver a professional and efficient service to our customer airlines and their passengers. With a strong team of around 800 staff, we have a vast amount of expertise in ground services at London Heathrow Terminal 3 and Terminal 4, where we have been operating since 1996, with airline self-handling experience before that.
Our aim is to deliver the best possible service and most appropriate ground solutions to our airline customers in what we understand is a highly specialised and competitive marketplace. Our size allows us to take your requirements as a basis for our work, as opposed to squeezing you into a standard process. We own and control the process from start to end.
HISTORY OF COBALT GROUND SOLUTIONS
Cobalt Ground Solutions Ltd was formed on 1st April 2009 by merging the two ground services subsidiaries of Air France and KLM in the UK – formerly Air France Services Ltd (AFSL) and KLM Ground Services Ltd (KGS). This merger created a new, stronger, integrated handling company, better positioned to provide complete and efficient ground services to our airline customers.
Cobalt delivered consistent, and tested procedures, and retained committed staff that created trusted partnerships with our airline customers spanning many years. Retaining this reputation and our loyal partners, Cobalt became a wholly owned subsidiary of Groupe CRIT on 01 January 2017. We joined Groupe CRIT’s Ground Handling division, which has operated since 1993 under different brand and names, including Groupe Europe Handling in France, Sky Handling Partner in Ireland and others. Together with Sky Handling Partner, our combined portfolio of airline customers in the UK expanded to 30 airlines, incorporating an annual traffic figure of over 4.5 million passengers.
