“Swissport International announced that it handled 4.7 million tonnes of air freight in 2023 compared to 4.8 million in 2023,” Warwick Brady, President and CEO, Swissport International, said.
“Wage inflation, rising interest rates and the wars in Ukraine and Gaza continue to impact global business and consumer confidence. Despite these uncertainties, Swissport had handled a solid 4.7 million metric tonnes of freight in 2023 after 4.8 million tonnes the previous year.”
From an overall business perspective, in 2023, Swissport achieved strong volume growth on the back of a sustained recovery in global air traffic. “As the global market leader, we were able to swiftly rebuild our teams to some 60,000 people globally, who now again provide airlines with the operating environment and services required for them to confidently and safely expand their flight schedules,” he added.
