Hooray for bubbles! Swissport celebrates the opening of Aus-NZ quarantine-free travel

How great was it to see the Trans-Tasman bubble open yesterday? A sign of revival! And fantastic news for Swissport’s Air New Zealand and Jetstar international teams.

Yesterday we supported the re-start of quarantine-free flying for Air New Zealand in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, the Gold Coast and Perth, with Hobart launching later this week and Adelaide shortly after. For Jetstar, Swissport supported services in Sydney and Auckland.

Congratulations to everyone involved in this significant re-start for Air New Zealand and Jetstar. The timing has been up in the air for so long, and then when the green light was given, it was all systems GO.

In 2020, Swissport International AG provided best-in-class airport ground services for some 82 million airline passengers and handled roughly 4.1 million tons of air freight at over 100 cargo warehouses worldwide. Several of its warehouses have been certified for pharmaceutical logistics by IATA’s CEIV Pharma and by the British MHRA. In 2019, the world’s leader in airport ground services and air cargo handling, with currently around 45,000 employees, achieved operating revenue of 3.13 billion euros. Swissport was active at 268 airports in 47 countries on six continents at the end of 2020.
