Swissport is growing its business in northeast Asia as it extended key contracts in Japan and South Korea with partner airlines and integrators.
The air services provider renewed its contract with Air France, KLM and Air Calin at Narita Airport (NRT) in Tokyo and has been providing cargo handling for Air France and KLM at Incheon Airport in Seoul as well as ground services for Air France at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport (HND) since June.
Swissport is set to manage cargo volumes of 25,000 tonnes per year at ICN and will support two daily flights at HND. At NRT, the group supports a daily flight each for Air France and KLM and five services a week for Air Calin.
“Swissport Japan has been proudly handling Air France KLM for three years, and we are delighted to expand our footprint to Haneda and Incheon,” said Toralf Sonntag, senior vice president for Asia.
In South Korea, Swissport has extended its partnerships with Lufthansa Cargo, Cathay Pacific and FedEx Express Korea.
“Thanks to consistent and award-winning performance, and following a long and competitive tender process, Swissport Korea is proud to continue its partnerships with Lufthansa Group, Cathay Pacific and FedEx Express Korea,” Sonntag said.
“This is a great achievement for Swissport Korea and we are honored to continue to provide our exceptional services and be a reliable partner to our valued customer airlines,” he added.
At ICN, the group provides cargo and freighter ramp services to Lufthansa Cargo, passenger, ramp and cargo services for Cathay Pacific, and ramp freighter and cargo warehouse handling for FedEx Express Korea.
