Where It All Began


Laufer Aviation was founded in 1975 by Menachem Laufer and became an Israeli pioneer as
the first private company to provide ground handling services in Israel.

During its first year, Laufer Aviation was made up of seven employees and served 200 flights. Over the following three decades, Laufer Aviation grew from a small, proud, family business to a well-established leader, renowned in the industry for its professionalism and high quality.

GHI was founded in 1996 as a joint venture between the leading international ground handling service company, GlobeGround International (which was owned by Lufthansa Airlines at the time) and MAMAN Group.

GHI has embraced GlobalGround’s comprehensive customer service standards and has established a reputation as a reliable provider of quality ground handling services, aircraft ground handling services and cargo ramp services, making the company a solidified leader in the field.
