Starting 1 April 2021, Swissport will support Aero K, an airline startup from South Korea. The low-cost carrier has contracted ground services from Swissport at Cheongju International Airport (CJJ).

Starting 1 April 2021, Swissport AIK Ltd, a joint venture between Swissport and Aero K Holdings, will provide airport ground services for Aero K, South Korea’s newest low-cost carrier. From Cheongju International Airport (CJJ), Aero K will fly three times daily with Airbus A320 aircraft to Jeju International Airport (CJU), a popular island holiday destination off the southern coast of the Korean peninsula.

Following a successful domestic launch, and once international travel regulations with regard to the Covid-19 permit, Aero K intends to introduce international flights to destinations in China, Japan, Taiwan, and Vietnam.
