Swissport restructures

In a significant move Warwick Brady, President & CEO, Swissport, has put into place a new commercial structure.

Brady, whose position was announced earlier in the year has appointed new regional managers for Switzerland, Germany and Austria, Continental Europe, and Middle East & Africa. The new leaders report directly to the President & CEO.

The revised structure creates larger market clusters with direct reporting lines to the CEO and eliminates the former three super-regions and their respective regional overheads, delivering better customer focus and faster decisions.

"Our new structure will make Swissport more customer centric. It enables faster decisions and supports operational excellence and a consistent service delivery," said Brady, "Swissport is back. As the global sector leader, we want to combine great customer service with cost leadership and provide better process flexibility and system compatibility than any competitor.”

In 2020, Swissport International AG provided best-in-class airport ground services for some 82m airline passengers (pre-Covid 2019: 265m) and handled roughly 4.1m tons of air freight (2019: 4.6m) at over 100 cargo warehouses worldwide. The world's leader in airport ground services and air cargo handling, with currently around 45,000 employees, was active at 269 airports in 47 countries on six continents at the end of 2020.

Swissport also operate the worldwide Aspire airport lounges.
