Airport Services Engine East Coast Airport Services keeps passengers moving
This year, Boston Logan International Airport will safely host about 30 million passengers and over 400,000 flights and move some 750 million pounds of cargo. Much of the credit for Logan’s efficiency goes to a company called East Coast Airport Services (ECAS).

Much of ECAS’ services – aircraft and cargo ground handling, warehousing, sale, leasing and maintenance of airline ground support equipment – involve gear powered by MTU Detroit Diesel engines supported by New England Detroit Diesel Allison (Wakefield, MA). NEDDA’s Tony Gemba says ECAS Maintenance Manager Jack Giglio oversees 57 pieces of ground support equipment, including pushback tractors, loaders, ground power units and air starters powered by Series 92® and other MTU Detroit Diesel engines.

Operating and maintaining all that equipment under optimum conditions in today’s hyper-competitive airline industry would be challenge enough for any ground support company, and even more so for one that sometimes keeps planes flying when blizzards have shut down other East Coast airports. Like a sturdy, uncomplaining New Englander, ECAS quietly and competently goes about its business at Logan.
