As part of its growth strategy in Latin America, Swissport has added six more airports to its network in Chile. The provider of airport ground services and air cargo handling is now represented at a total of eight Chilean airports, covering airports in the entire country from Arica (ARI) in the north to Punta Arenas (PUQ) in the south. At all six new locations, Swissport provides passenger and ramp services to LATAM Airlines, one of its largest customers in the Americas.

“We are pleased to grow with our customers at six additional locations in Chile. Our check-in, gate and ramp staff will do their best to support them in the recovery phase after the crisis caused by the COVID-pandemic“, says Rene Pascua, Head of Latin America and Caribbean at Swissport. „Overall, our significant growth in Chile is part of our strategy that is paying off in many countries in the region as airline customers seek reliable services and operational excellence.”

Just this month, Swissport added Uruguay to the list of now 45 countries around the globe where the Switzerland-headquartered provider offers its professional services. In Uruguay, the airports of Montevideo (MVD) and – as of January 2022 – Punta del Este (PDP) are part of the Swissport network. In addition, since October, Swissport has been able to reopen three locations in Argentina (Mendoza, Jujuy and Cordoba) that had been closed during the pandemic, increasing the number to nine airport locations offered in the country.
