Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 16 marzo 2023

The Mexican airline joins the broad portfolio of 50 airlines relying on Swissport’s market-leading solutions since it started operations at Rome Fiumicino in July 2022. The Swiss market leader in airport ground services and air cargo handling will provide to the airline with safe, cutting-edge, and efficient passenger and security services, lounge hospitality and ramp handling. The Mexican airline will start direct flights between Rome Fiumicino and Mexico-City from 26 March 2023. Initially, AeroMexico will operate four weekly flights with Boeing 787 aircraft, increasing to seven flights from mid-June. The new Swissport-AeroMexico service agreement runs until March 2026. Swissport launched operations in Italy in July last year, initially at Rome Fiumicino and then at Milan Linate from October 2022. Since starting up, Swissport has already served more than 4.8 million passengers and handled almost 42,000 departures of 50 airlines at Rome Fiumicino airport. It has proven its ability to reliably start up at any new airport or take over airport service providers without any disruption to ground operations. At Rome Fiumicino, Swissport ensures the complete ground operation for ITA Airways at their home base. It is one of more than a dozen hub and other large base operations – both in airport ground services and air cargo hub handling – that Swissport manages for a growing list of airline customers around the world. By leveraging Swissport’s specialist expertise and economies of scale, airlines can unlock flexibility and support their growth. In 2022, Swissport International AG provided best-in-class airport ground services for some 186 million airline passengers (2021: 97 million) and handled roughly 4.8 million tons of air freight (2021: 5.1 million) at 117 air cargo centers worldwide. Several of its warehouses have been certified for pharmaceutical logistics by IATA’s CEIV Pharma and by the British MHRA. At the end of 2022, the world’s leader in airport ground services and air cargo handling, with around 50,000 employees, was active at 292 airports in 45 countries on six continents.
