Swissport to handle Air Tanzania at two airports

Comment on this article

Tanzania’s national carrier has selected Swissport to handle their entire hub operation at the airports of Dar es Salaam and Kilimanjaro.

The agreement goes into operation this month, and includes full range ground handling, cargo handling and aviation security services for 21 flights daily across both airports.

“We are delighted that Air Tanzania has chosen to rely on Swissport’s high quality, reliable and efficient operational services at its hub airports in Dar es Salaam and Kilimanjaro”, said Jeroen de Clercq, Head of Sub-Saharan Africa and Israel, Swissport. “With their fast-growing fleet of modern aircraft, Air Tanzania is the undisputed leader in the Tanzanian aviation market and we are excited to support them.”

Swissport ground handlers will be servicing Boeing 787 Dreamliners, Airbus A220s and Bombardier Q400 aircraft for Air Tanzania, which the carrier operates to ten Tanzanian and six international destinations.

The new partnership furthers the company’s growing presence on the African continent. As of the end of September 2019, Swissport was operational at 307 airports in 48 countries on six continents.
