Swissport has added Mombasa, Kenya, to its growing African network to cover 31 airports across the continent.

The handler started operations at Mombasa’s Moi International Airport (MBA) at the end of December 2022. The first aircraft served by the local Swissport team was a Flightlink Aviation flight from Zanzibar Island.

The services offered in Mombasa include passenger services and ramp handling, with the potential to expand to freighter handling. In Kenya, Swissport has been supporting airlines in Nairobi since 1997 where it also operates a cargo centre.

“We are thrilled to see Swissport expand from Nairobi to Mombasa’s Moi International Airport,” says Racheal Ndegwa, Managing Director of Swissport International in Kenya. “Our teams are well trained and can build on extensive experience from the Nairobi operation. Mombasa was a strategic and natural next step.”

Moi International Airport in Mombasa is the second largest airport in Kenya and acts as an important gateway to many domestic and regional destinations.
