Swissport revenues up

GROUND handler Swissport International achieved revenues of US$2.39 billion in 2013, an 11 per cent increase, in a year that could be characterised by recovering cargo markets, the company says.
Swissport grew ahead of the market and was able to increase its airfreight tonnage by 18.4 per cent, reflecting the recovery of the airfreight market.
Per Utnegaard, chief executive of Swissport International, says: “The 2013 overall growth for the group was in line with expectation, as we continue to capture market shares. I am confident that with the acquisition of Servisair we will further strengthen the position of the Swissport group.”
