Al-Ula in Saudi Arabia joins Swissport’s network

Swissport has added Prince Abdul Majeed bin Abdulaziz International Airport at Al-Ula (ULH) to its growing network in Saudi Arabia.

Swissport will provide Royal Jordanian with passenger services and ramp handling at Al-Ula.

Initially, Swissport will handle two weekly flights to and from Amman.

The company expects flight volumes in Saudi Arabia to grow significantly as more airlines add destinations or increase frequencies in the thriving Kingdom.

Chris Browne, CEO of Swissport Saudi Arabia says: “We are delighted to be able to offer our high-quality aviation services at Al-Ula and are honored by the trust our launching customer Royal Jordanian places in us.”

Al-Ula is Swissport’s sixth airport in Saudi Arabia and further strengthens its position as the go-to service provider for airlines seeking a reliable long-term partner across the Arabian Peninsula and beyond.

The start of operations at Al-Ula underlines Swissport’s strategic commitment to Saudi Arabia.

Dirk Goovaerts, Swissport’s CEO for Continental Europe, Middle East, and Africa says: “Jointly with ASYAD Holding, our Saudi joint-venture partner, we have ambitious plans and are committed to contributing towards the Saudi Vision 2030, which will place the Kingdom’s aviation sector in the ivy-league of global aviation,”.
