SWISS and Swissport to extend their Swiss collaboration
The present contractual agreements between SWISS and Swissport for the latter’s airport ground services in Switzerland expire at the end of 2020. The partners have now agreed to extend their successful collaboration here for a further seven years.
Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) and Swissport will continue to work closely together in Switzerland. After intensive negotiations, the partners have agreed to extend their collaboration for a further seven years. Swissport will thus continue to provide passenger and aircraft handling services for SWISS, Edelweiss, Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines at the country’s three main airports of Zurich, Geneva and Basel.
“We are very pleased to be able to continue our proven and long-standing partnership with Swissport in the coming years,” says SWISS Head of Ground Operations Christoph Casparis. “Smooth and professional passenger and ground handling are crucial to both us and our customers. And Swissport is an extremely dependable partner here for SWISS and the further airlines of the Lufthansa Group.”
“We are honoured to again be entrusted by the Lufthansa Group and Swiss International Air Lines in particular,” adds Willy Ruf, Senior Vice President Central & Eastern Europe at Swissport. “With consistently high quality, reliable services and motivated employees, we look forward to continuing to provide services to the Lufthansa Group’s leading airlines.”
