Executive Aircraft Services (EAS) and Inflite have formed a joint venture in an attempt to expand aircraft handling at their respective London Heathrow and Stansted airport bases. EAS, owned by aviation security firm ADI, will provide new equipment and specialised staff for handling large business aircraft at Inflite's Stansted airport base, while Inflite will supply engineering and maintenance support for EAS at Heathrow. The companies have also secured a contract to provide aircraft handling for an oil exploration company which operates bi-monthly Boeing 747 flights between the UK and the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic.
