Cathay Pacific Cargo Chooses Swissport at its Frankfurt Air Cargo Hub

Swissport and Cathay Pacific Cargo have signed a 5-year contract for the handling of air cargo at Frankfurt Airport.

The new 5-year collaboration represents a significant increase of handling volumes for Swissport’s activities at Frankfurt Airport. Cathay Pacific Cargo has made Frankfurt its European air cargo hub and the contract represents 26,000 tons of cargo per year, flown with freight aircraft (four weekly flights with Boeing 747-400 or 747-8) and four weekly passenger flights (Boeing 777 or Airbus 350) between Frankfurt, the US and Hong Kong.

“We are very pleased with this vote of confidence by Cathay Pacific Cargo, one of the world’s leading air cargo carriers,” says Henning Dieter, Head of Swissport Cargo Services Germany. “Our investments in high-tech equipment and digitalization combined with the increased warehousing space provide a strong foundation for a mutually beneficial collaboration.”

Swissport recently started operations at its brand new 17,000 sqm facility at Frankfurt Airport, increasing air cargo capacity by about 50%. The integrated Swissport Pharma Center guarantees end-to-end temperature-controlled processing and warehousing for pharmaceutical shipments, an important European export product not only in times of COVID-19. The new location features a state-of-the-art infrastructure, innovative technology, sustainable energy creation and digitalized processes for traffic control.
