Swissport wins Air Tanzania hub contract

Swissport has secured a hub management contract for Air Tanzania’s operations at Dar Es Salaam and Kilimanjaro airports

The new agreement with the east African flag carrier includes airport ground services, air cargo handling and aviation security.

Swissport will provide check-in and gate services, baggage handling, moving of aircraft, cargo loading and aviation security services for 21 flights daily.

The new partnership further expands the Swissport’s growing presence on the African continent. In October 2019, it won a seven-year license for ground services at 15 airports in Morocco.

Jeroen de Clercq, head of sub-Sahara and Israel at Swissport International, said: “With their fast-growing fleet of modern aircraft, Air Tanzania is the undisputed leader in the Tanzanian aviation market and we are excited to support them.”

Swissport staff will be servicing Boeing 787 Dreamliners, Airbus A220s and Bombardier Q400 aircraft for Air Tanzania, which the carrier operates to ten domestic hubs in Tanzania and to six international destinations.
