Swissport International Ltd. signs Joint Venture Agreement with Al Jarwani Group
Swissport International Ltd. is entering into a Joint Venture with the Muscat based Al Jarwani Group (AJG). Both companies will collaborate closely to successfully start-up Swissport’s new operation at Muscat International Airport after being awarded with the 2nd Ground Handling license.
On 18th October 2016, Swissport International Ltd. and the renowned Al Jarwani Group signed their Joint Venture agreement in Muscat. With this new engagement, Swissport International Ltd. demonstrates not only its commitment to the Gulf Region, but also to Oman as a main regional hub. Oman is the second GCC country in which Swissport International Ltd. operates after having established its business in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in May 2016.
Al Jarwani Group will contribute largely through its long-standing and successful experience and expertise in managing businesses in the Sultanate of Oman. Both companies are excited about the partnership and are looking forward to build and grow a successful venture by providing best-in-class Ground Handling Services to airlines in Muscat.
With the entirely new and state-of-the-art Muscat Airport Terminal under construction, Oman is likely to become a significant hub for both travellers transiting through the region as well as the growing tourism industry.
Al Jarwani Group (AJG) is a privately owned company established by Sheikh Mahmood Al Jarwani that was formed to take over and to head the diverse divisions of the organization. AJG has been proactively positioning itself to be a prominent contributor to the Sultanate’s Commercial, Warehouse, Residential, Health Care and Hospitality sector’s growth. AJG has significantly grown over the past years and shows a great amount of passion in each stage of its prestigious and ground breaking projects. www.aljarwanigroup.com
