Swissport handles Korean Air at Schiphol

Korean Air has picked Swissport to provide ground services at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol for passenger flights.

Swissport already provides ramp and warehousing services for Korean Air’s cargo flights, and now it will handle passenger flights.

It will handle two passenger flights a week between Amsterdam and Seoul, and this is expected to rise as international air travel recovers.

Daniel Tarrega, CEO of Swissport the Netherlands said: “Korean Air is an important and valued customer for our air cargo business at Schiphol Airport. Today, we are honoured and excited to announce that, since this week, we also provide our best-in-class ground services to South Korea’s flag carrier. This expansion of our cooperation is an important vote of confidence and a recognition of our service quality.”

Kiyong Kwak, Regional Manager Central and Northern Europe for Korean Air added: “Korean Air has high expectations for Swissport's differentiated and customised service. We are confident that the cooperation between the two companies will be a great step forward for the airline to achieve its mission of excellence in flight.”
