GVAssistance awarded PRM licence at Geneva Airport

GVAssistance has been awarded the contract to provide PRM assistance services at Geneva Airport until 2031.

The Swissport subsidiary, which is 70% owned by Swissport and 30% owned by dnata, applied for the licence to provide services for passengers with reduced mobility when Geneva Airport launched the tender process in January.

GVAssistance was one of five companies to apply for the licence, which runs from 2025 to 2031.

It has been assisting passengers with restricted mobility for over 15 years at Geneva Airport, providing safe transportation departing, arriving at or transiting through the airport.

Philippe Crippa, Managing Director of GVAssistance, said: “Obtaining this concession confirms our expertise in assisting an average of 140,000 people with reduced mobility per year and underlines GVAssistance's commitment as a competent partner of Geneva Airport.”

GVAssistance is upgrading its fleet with eight ambulances due to be exchanged for electric vehicles next month (June 2024).

Electric vehicles will also be introduced in the airport building for the transfer of accompanying persons, subject to infrastructure development.

The PRM service provider has committed to fully electrifying its vehicle fleet by 2031, in line with Geneva Airport’s sustainability efforts.
