Airport ground handling company Swissport has announced the extension of its 11-year partnership with Australian airline Tigerair for its domestic network.
Tigerair confirmed Swissport as its ground handling partner for a three-year term, with the opportunity to extend for two years, renewing a relationship that began when Tigerair commenced services in 2007.
“Having played an integral role in Tigerair’s start-up, we have been honoured to support the airline as their business has developed over several years to become the key player they are today,” said Swissport Senior VP Pacific Rob D’Alessio
“We have always worked energetically and innovatively to support Tigerair to capitalise on various opportunities and tackle challenges along the way.”
A low-cost, domestic airline, Tigerair has been in partnership with Swissport as its exclusive ground handling service provider since its inception in 2007.
“We are pleased to announce today that we are continuing our long-standing partnership with Swissport,” said Tigerair Australia CEO, Merren McArthur.
“As the exclusive ground handler for Tigerair Australia across all of the airports that we operate within, we rely on Swissport to be an extension of our team, welcoming our customers and ensuring that our operations run safely and smoothly across Australia.”
