Lufthansa and SWISS have extended their agreement with Swissport for cargo handling at five airports on the Iberian Peninsula: Alicante, Barcelona, Madrid, Malaga and Valencia.

Swissport will handle the airline group’s air cargo for approximately 19 flights and two road feeder services per day, connecting Lufthansa’s Frankfurt and Munich hubs in Germany and the SWISS hub in Zurich, Switzerland, with Spanish airports.

Services include truck loading and unloading as well as cargo terminal services and special products handling

“We are very pleased that Lufthansa Cargo will continue to put its trust in our expertise and professional cargo services in Spain,” said Dirk Goovaerts, head of Swissport continental Europe, Middle East and Africa.

“The new contract extends our successful ten-plus year collaboration and is a testament of our trust-based and close partnership in Spain and at airports around the world.”
