Let us introduce ourselves


ATS has deep aviation roots, a dynamic business platform and a diverse customer base. ATS has an established reputation as a ground handling service provider in the USA and Canada. Airport Butler and Wingtips are part of the hospitality division within ATS established in 2013.

How we got here


ATS was formed in 1975 as a subsidiary of Midcoast Aviation. In 1985, Midcoast Aviation was purchased by Ozark Airlines which was purchased in 1986 by TWA. In September of 1994, ATS was purchased from TWA and has since been privately owned.

Our dedication


We, the employees of ATS, will provide the highest quality service in the safest environment to the airlines, airports and customers they serve.

ATS is dedicated to the vision that a medium sized, private and independently owned company can provide the level of focused service required in a dynamic industry with competitive and financial pressures.

Looking ahead


To be the safest, most secure, best trained and most professional ground handling service provider in the market; and to attract and retain the most talented employees by creating a culture that encourages collaboration, bilateral communication, abundant growth opportunities, effective recognition and to ultimately become the employer of choice.

What sets us apart


Being one of the largest privately held companies in our industry enables us to make autonomous decisions allowing us to be nimble and creative, but financially competitive with companies of any size.

We recognize the importance of accurately representing our customers’ brands and are adept in delivering the specialized service our customers require and their customers expect.
