Air France-KLM Group has awarded Swissport an expanded contract to provide cargo handling services in Saudi Arabia until the end of 2025.

    The new five-year contract extends the companies’ existing cooperation to all flights of all airlines of the French-Dutch airline group, including freighter services, to and from Saudi Arabia.

    “We are excited and honoured by the renewed confidence Air France-KLM puts in our business and our people in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” said Swissport Middle East’s CEO Gerold Tumulka.

    “By including all airlines of the group into the contract, we are the preferred partner for Air France-KLM in the region. We look forward to standing by their side through the market recovery and support them post-Covid as prospects get brighter.”
