British Airways extends Swissport partnership in Larnaca

Swissport Cyprus secured a contract extension with its long-standing partner, British Airways, for airport ground services at Larnaca International Airport (LCA).

The contract, which dates from 2008, covers complete airport ground services. Swissport also offers lounge hospitality for airline’s passengers at Larnaca’s airport.

Swissport, the largest airport ground services and air cargo handling company in Cyprus, has been serving British Airways at LCA and Paphos International Airport (PFO) since 2008, the year Swissport was established in Cyprus.

“British Airways was one of the first clients of Swissport Cyprus, and we are thrilled to continue to serve the airline and the passengers,” said Sofocles Tymvios, Managing Director Swissport Cyprus. “This long partnership has been built on trust and operational excellence provided by our professional and dedicated teams. It is truly an example of aligned goals of efficiency, reliability, and understanding between the airline and the handler.”

Since the beginning of the partnership in 2008, Swissport teams have handled many British Airways aircraft types, including an iconic Boeing 767, now decommissioned, which touched down in Larnaca for the last time in November 2018 before making its final journey to London Heathrow Airport.
