SWISSPORT SIGNS GROUND HANDLING AGREEMENT WITH VIRGIN ATLANTIC AIRWAYS AT LONDON GATWICK
Swissport GB Ltd. is delighted to announce that it has reached preferred vendor status with Virgin Atlantic Airways to supply ground handling services at London Gatwick following Aviator’s announcement to exit the UK ground handling market.
We will work closely with Virgin and Aviator to transition the ground handling services for Virgin’s flying programme from Gatwick to ensure no impact on their customers. We intend to have this transition completed by the middle of November.
Swissport is very pleased to return to London Gatwick to renew our partnership with Virgin Atlantic Airways and are looking forward to further raise the levels of service quality and efficiency delivered to their customers together.
Swissport International Ltd. provides ground services for around 230 million passengers and handles 4.1 million tonnes of cargo a year on behalf of some 835 client-companies in the aviation sector. With a workforce of around 61,000 personnel, Swissport is active at more than 280 stations in 48 countries across five continents, and generates consolidated operating revenue of CHF 3.0 billion. www.swissport.com
