Alberto Santamarta, Head of Ground Ops UK and Europe at easyJet said: “We are very pleased to be continuing our long and successful partnership with Swissport. As the largest airline in Liverpool airport it’s important that we can count on a high-level of consistent service from our partners. We’ve seen this and more from Swissport, and we look forward to another five years of excellent service.”

Luzius Wirth, CEO for UK and Ireland at Swissport said: “The renewal of our partnership with easyJet in Liverpool is testimony to the hard work and dedication shown every day by our team.
