Swissport Acquires Flightcare Belgium & Spain

Swissport, the world’s leading provider of ground services to the aviation sector, is to acquire Flightcare Spain and Flightcare Belgium from FCC Versia, significantly expanding Swissport’s network in Spain and allowing it to become a full-service provider at Brussels Airport. The acquisitions of the Flightcare businesses in Spain and Belgium, which combined handled over 24 million passengers and approximately 287,000 tonnes of cargo in 2011, and employing around 3,000 staff, are great additions to Swissport’s network, due to their good reputation among customers and strong operational performance. 
Belgium has long been an important market for Swissport, and Swissport already provides cargo handling services at Brussels, Liege, and Antwerp airports. Swissport will now be able to offer clients ground handling services at Brussels Airport for the first time, in addition to its existing cargo business there. For the cargo division, this represents a great opportunity to grow the business further.
