Swissport International has opened another air cargo warehouse at Vienna International airport.

The new facility will have a surface of 2,100 square metres, bringing Swissport’s total cargo space to 7,000 square metres at the station. The cargo facility also has direct airside access, allowing shipments to be transported to and from the aircraft much faster than before. Swissport is one of only two air cargo handlers at Vienna International airport which can provide a direct access to the airport apron.

“We are pleased to be able to offer our clients even shorter transit times for their shipments going through Vienna,” declares Willy Ruf, Senior Vice President Central Europe of Swissport. “The opening of the new warehouse is another step to meet our strategic goal of offering direct airside access at each of the 15 airports at which we offer cargo services in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.”

Swissport’s latest facility was built by the Flughafen Wien, the Vienna airport operator, and the handler has entered into a long term lease agreement for the building. As part of this arrangement, Swissport has relocated its cargo documentation services to new offices in the building, offering clients a one-stop service.
