Aviation services company Swissport has extended its alliance with Hong Kong Airlines in Japan until 2025.

Since July 2016, Swissport Japan has been offering passenger services, air cargo handling, ramp handling, and cabin cleaning to Hong Kong Airlines.

Swissport Asia Pacific managing director Brad Moore said: “We are pleased to extend our successful partnership with Hong Kong Airlines in Japan.

“We’re looking forward to seeing their aircraft and volumes return back to pre-COVID numbers as travel restrictions continue to ease across much of Asia.”

Under the new agreement, Swissport will continue to offer its services for another three years to the Hong Kong-based carrier at Kansai International Airport near Osaka and at Tokyo’s Narita International Airport.

Hong Kong Airlines ran up to three flights a day to both these airports from Hong Kong International Airport before the Covid-19 pandemic.

Swissport Japan director and COO Stephan Kaeser said: “Swissport Japan is honoured to continue providing services to one of our key customers in Kansai and Narita.

“The extension of the partnership is the result of our close and fruitful cooperation which never ceased throughout the ongoing pandemic in Asia, and we value the trust from Hong Kong Airlines. We look forward to continuing to deliver day in and day out for them.”

Earlier this month, Swissport extended its agreement with Air Tanzania until 2024 at its Dar es Salaam (DAR) home base in Tanzania.
