OCS has been selected as the preferred supplier of aircraft cleaning and laundry services to Vietnam Airlines at London Gatwick Airport.

The OCS team provide a secure aircraft cleaning service and are specially trained in searching the aircraft for suspicious devices.
Phil Derbyshire, Director of Transport and Leisure for OCS, commented: “The addition of the Vietnam Airlines contract brings our aircraft cleaning business portfolio at Gatwick to 16 airlines, including British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Monarch. It follows the recent wins with Air Asia X and Turkish Airlines, and underlines the rapid growth in business achieved at Gatwick Airport over the last 18 months.”
