Swissport to serve over 40 weekly flights for Singapore airlines in Melbourne and Brisbane
Swissport has been awarded the ground services business for Singapore Airlines in Melbourne and Brisbane, two key Australian airports. From 21 May, Swissport will be providing full ramp handling and passenger services for more than 40 weekly flights operated by the Asian carrier between its Singapore hub and the two cities.
Swissport has been appointed as ground services partner for Singapore Airlines at the major Australian airports of Melbourne and Brisbane. Swissport will provide full ramp handling and passenger services for a growing flight schedule which currently includes four daily flights in Melbourne and three flights per day in Brisbane, operated by Singapore Airlines with a range of different aircraft types.
“The Swissport team is so delighted to secure this contract with Singapore Airlines, one of Australia’s favorite airlines and a true world leader,” says Brad Moore, Swissport’s Managing Director for APAC. “Our continued success with major international carriers has cemented our place as the safest and highest-quality provider of ground services to airlines in this region. In both Melbourne and Brisbane, the new Singapore Airlines contract will generate training and development opportunities along with employment opportunities for new colleagues.”
Swissport has also recently commenced ground services for Singapore Airlines at Cairns Airport in tropical North Queensland, the gateway to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Internationally, Swissport supports Singapore Airlines in Europe and North America, providing the carrier with the consistent and reliable high-quality service it seeks.
Swissport supports all major domestic airlines and several leading international carriers at 24 airports across Australia and New Zealand. As Australian border restrictions have eased, Swissport has been supporting several international airlines with their return to flying, most recently Hawaiian Airlines and American Airlines.
