Eurowings has commissioned Swissport to take over the check-in and gate services for passengers at Cologne/Bonn Airport and to coordinate the fleet's aircraft handling.

The Swiss service provider has landed a major order from Eurowings in Germany. The cooperation includes passenger handling and the coordination of aircraft handling and will begin this summer, as the former Swissair subsidiary announced on Thursday. The new contract with the Lufthansa subsidiary should come into force in July 2022 at the latest. From then on, around 310 Eurowings flights per week or 16.000 flights per year would be handled. Swissport would like to hire around 180 new employees for the new order.

"It is a privilege for Swissport to support Eurowings with passenger services and aircraft turnaround coordination at such an important location," says Philipp Frech, Regional Managing Director Germany and Austria at Swissport. “The addition of Cologne/Bonn to the list of airports where Swissport already serves Eurowings is a further step in our commitment to deliver operational excellence worldwide wherever our customers operate. At the same time, we are pleased to be able to create around 180 exciting new jobs at the airport.”
