“Ensuring our facilities are clean and safe is of the highest importance to us,” according to Krishan Tangri, Executive General Manager Infrastructure & Planning at Brisbane Airport Corporation. 

“In 2022, Brisbane Airport won the Skytrax Airport Award for The Cleanest Airport and this is certainly an area we take pride in. We look forward to working with Trident Services Australia to maintain high standards across the airport.”

“Additionally, the dedicated Trident site management team is passionate about driving the service offering towards continuous improvements in the areas of sustainability, safety and efficiency, keeping people and property safe.” 

The contract will begin 1 October 2023 and run until at least 2026.
