The Swissport Profile
In 2018, Swissport International AG provided best-in-class airport ground services for some 282 million airline passengers and handled roughly 4.8 million tons of air freight in 115 cargo warehouses worldwide. The world's leading provider of airport ground services and air cargo handling, with 66,000 employees, achieved consolidated operating revenue of 2.99 billion euros in 2018. At the end of June 2019, Swissport was active at 310 airports in 49 countries on six continents.
In working towards our vision, Swissport is focused on consolidating and strengthening our market position to ensure we are constantly driving industry innovation in key areas such as service, quality and reliability.
Swissport’s presence in the Asia-Pacific region has received another boost with the launch of Swissport Executive Aviation at Auckland Airport, New Zealand. The Executive Aviation brand is replacing Skycare, the former Fixed Base Operation (FBO) of Aerocare, and now connects with more than 90 airports and 25 countries across the globe.
Swissport is speeding-up the air freight handling processes at its cargo warehouses by introducing newly developed self-services kiosks. The digital innovation reduces waiting times and increases the quality of the air freight documentation.
Swissport International has won a license for ground services at 15 airports in Morocco. The new license is valid from 1 October 2019 and has a term of seven years.
Swissport, on the occasion of the publication of its latest Sustainability Report today, has committed to further invest in environmentally friendly equipment. By 2025, the company aims to increase the share of electric vehicles in its fleet to at least 50% to further reduce its carbon footprint and to improve the direct working environment of its employees.
Swissport has been awarded a 5-year contract to perform load control services for all continental flights of Swiss International Air Lines. Swissport’s “Centralized Load Control” unit (CLC) will provide SWISS with some 21,000 load-sheets yearly across 47 airports.
