Hong Kong Airlines is extending its ground handling partnership with Swissport at two Japanese airports.

The new partnership runs until 2025 and covers cargo and ground services at Kansai Airport near Osaka and at Tokyo’s Narita International Airport.

“We are pleased to extend our successful partnership with Hong Kong Airlines in Japan,” said Brad Moore, managing director of Asia Pacific at Swissport.

“We’re looking forward to seeing their aircraft and volumes return back to pre-COVID numbers as travel restrictions continue to ease across much of Asia.”

Swissport has been providing passenger services, ramp handling, cabin cleaning, and air cargo handling to Hong Kong Airlines since July 2016 at Kansai Airpot and Narita International Airport.

In July, Hong Kong Air Cargo launched a new scheduled freighter service between Hong Kong and Tokyo, Japan.

In March, Swissport announced it was targeting an “ambitious” acquisition plan and has appointed Pablo von Siebenthal as global head of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) to head up the project.
