Easyjet awards Berlin ground service business to Swissport until 2026

Swissport has won a major contract from easyJet at Berlin Airport.

From 1 October 2021, the world’s leader of airport ground services and air cargo handling will provide full ground handling services for easyJet passengers at check-in and gate, and will also be responsible for aircraft handling on the apron, including baggage loading and pushback services.

The new contract is valid until 2026 and covers 30 of the airline’s daily flights from its Berlin hub, connecting the German capital with around 70 major destinations in Europe.

“We are honored and grateful that easyJet has entrusted us with the handling of their hub in Berlin. The new contract is a sign of the trust we have been able to build together through our various collaborations across our network in Europe,” says Willy Ruf, senior vice president central & Eastern Europe at Swissport International.

“Our teams on the ground in Berlin are excited to serve easyJet and its passengers and look forward to starting operations this fall.”
