Swissport provides ramp handling services for Finnair’s long-haul fleet at Helsinki airport


Finnair has selected Swissport to support the smooth ramp-up of its intercontinental traffic at its home hub. The contract focusses on-ramp services for the long-haul fleet and is part of Finnair’s adjustment of ground handling responsibilities at Helsinki Airport.

Swissport will again provide ramp handling services for the wide-body fleet of Airbus A350 and Airbus A330 aircraft of its long-time customer Finnair, as the airline ramps up its long-haul operations to Asia and the US. “We are grateful for the trust Finnair has once again placed in us,” says Jan van Engelen, Head of the Continental Europe region at Swissport. “The increase in long-haul flights is an important step towards further strengthening our partnership. With our innovation and operational excellence on the ground, we will support Finnair’s successful growth.”

Swissport and Finnair have a long-standing partnership in various areas of aviation services. The global leader in airport ground services and air cargo handling has already been entrusted by Finnair to operate the COOL Cargo warehouse, one of the largest temperature-controlled air cargo logistics centres in Northern Europe. As recently as October 2021, the COOL Cargo contract was extended earlier than expected until 2026.

Since 2018, Swissport is also providing ground handling services for the fleet of ATR aircraft of NORRA Nordic Regional Airlines, a subsidiary of Finnair.
