Swissport wins American Airlines business in Sydney

American Airlines has appointed Swissport as its ground services partner in Australia.

At Sydney Airport, Swissport provides ramp handling and passenger services for the airline’s Sydney-Los Angeles services, which resumed last month following a four-month pause due to Australian border restrictions.

Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, the airline was operating daily Los Angeles–Sydney flights utilising Boeing 787-9 aircraft, with plans to add additional routes to Australia and New Zealand.

Swissport is honoured and excited to be chosen as American Airlines’ partner in Australia,” said Brad Moore, Managing Director for Asia-Pacific at Swissport.

“We are thrilled to partner with Swissport, a global leader in safety and quality ground services,” said Samantha O’Connell, General Manager – SYD for American Airlines.

Outside Australia, Swissport supports American Airlines in Canada, the United States and Europe.
