Korean Air chooses Swissport as ground services partner at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport

Swissport has been chosen by Korean Air to provide its full range of ground services at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.

Swissport already provides ramp and warehousing services for Korean’s cargo flights in Amsterdam and now expands its service offering to passenger flights, including amongst others check-in and baggage services.

Daniel Tarrega, CEO of Swissport the Netherlands, commented: “Korean Air is an important and valued customer for our air cargo business at Schiphol Airport.

“Today, we are honored 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.”

“Korean Air has high expectations for Swissport’s differentiated and customized service” Says Kiyong Kwak, Regional Manager Central and Northern Europe for Korean Air.

“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.”

Swissport already provides ramp and warehousing services for three weekly Korean Air flights, using its recently expanded 35,000 sqm of combined first- and second line warehousing space (read more here) and the IATA CEIV certified Swissport Pharma Center.

In addition to the existing cargo services, Swissport will now handle the two weekly passenger flights between Amsterdam and Seoul.

As the summer season approaches and international air travel continues to recover, the amount of flights is expected to rise.
