Swissport has been appointed ground handler for Air New Zealand in four major airports in Australia, following a competitive tender focussed on safety, service and operational performance.

The contract win means that Swissport will handle 8,000 additional flights in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth each year and signals further growth for the organisation in the Pacific region.

Swissport Pacific's CEO, Glenn Rutherford, said that the new long-term contract would entail recruiting more than 250 new staff in Australia and that employees would benefit in terms of an investment of more than A$13m in training, skills development and specialist equipment.
