Swissport Wins IAG At Berlin Airport

Swissport and IAG have signed a 3-year contract covering airport ground services for the airlines of IAG at the new Berlin Brandenburg International Airport in the German capital.

A British Airways flight to London Heathrow was the first flight under the new agreement with the British-Spanish airline group at the new Berlin Brandenburg International Airport.

The 3-year contract covers airport ground services for flights of British Airways, Iberia and Vueling, including passenger services at check-in and gates, ramp handling, baggage loading and pushback services, as well as aircraft cleaning. The cooperation starts with three flights every weekend in March and will be extended to two daily flights from 1 April 2021.

“We are honored by the trust placed in us by IAG and their airlines at our new base in Berlin,” says Carsten Zuberbier, managing director of Swissport in Berlin. “Our customers can rely on our quality services and the full dedication of our passenger service and ramp agents. As the first-choice partner for airlines around the world, Swissport supports the restart of aviation on the ground as the sector emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic.”
