Swissport supports air force cadets at Brisbane Airport

Swissport’s Brisbane teams enjoyed supporting an airside familiarisation day for the Royal Australian Air Force cadets at Brisbane Airport on Saturday.

Swissport Pacific CEO Glenn Rutherford said the events allowed cadets get up close to the various aircraft and enjoy individual time in the cockpits with the captains.

“It’s fantastic to hear of the support provided by the airlines and the pilots themselves who volunteered their time for the event, grateful for similar opportunities that were provided to them in their earlier years.”

The Royal Flying Doctors Service provided a Beechcraft King Air B200, Virgin Australia a Boeing 737-800, Tigerair an Airbus A320-200 and the Airservices Aviation Rescue Fire Fighters (ARRF) brought out their truck and water response vehicle.

Swissport provided the ground services equipment to stage at the aircraft, and its bussing provider Carbridge transported the cadets between the various aircraft and the terminals.
