Fraport and Swissport have signed a long-term lease agreement for a new air cargo facility in CargoCity South at Frankfurt airport.

The facility will have a surface area of 16,900 square metres, with an additional 2,260 square metres dedicated to office and social space.

The new warehouse will be optimally tailored to the requirements of modern air cargo handling. Built in line with the latest industry standards, the facility will be designed for flexible use. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2019 and the completion and handover to Swissport Cargo Services Deutschland is planned for the beginning of the third quarter of 2020.

"Thanks to the excellent location in CargoCity South and a flexible design, this new warehouse will allow Swissport to meet and continually optimise air freight handling requirements. Therefore, the innovative facility will provide Swissport with long-term growth opportunities at Frankfurt airport,” explained Christian Balletshofer, Senior VP of Real Estate at Fraport.

Willy Ruf, Senior VP of Swissport Germany, Austria & Switzerland, added: “Swissport is committing a double-digit million euro amount towards the new facility at Frankfurt. Infrastructure plays a key role in optimising our service delivery and reaching the ambitious efficiency and reliability goals for our clients around the world.”
