Swiss aviation services company Swissport has further expanded its presence in the African region by adding Mombasa’s Moi International Airport (MBA) to its network.

At MBA, Swissport will offer a wide range of services such as passenger services and ramp handling with the potential to expand to freighter handling.

With the addition of MBA, Swissport is now offering aviation ground services at 31 airports across Africa.

The Swiss company has been supporting airlines in Nairobi since 1997 and also operated a cargo center at Nairobi International (NBO).

Swissport International Kenya managing director Racheal Ndegwa said: “We are thrilled to see Swissport expand from Nairobi to Mombasa’s Moi International Airport.

“Our teams are well trained and can build on extensive experience from the Nairobi operation. Mombasa was a strategic and natural next step.”

The aviation services company started operations in MBA at the end of December 2022.

MBA is the second largest airport in Kenya and serves as an important gateway to many domestic and regional destinations.

Swissport Continental Europe, Middle East, and Africa managing director and Global Cargo chair Dirk Goovaerts said: “Africa is a very important region for Swissport. We are intensifying our efforts to extend the network for our airline customers, both in countries where we already have a presence and at new airports.

“Combining our global expertise with the knowledge and experience of our local teams, we are able to offer best-in-class and reliable aviation ground services for our airline customers in our growing network of airports around the world.”
