Swissport International has opened its second air cargo warehouse at Vienna International Airport (IATA: VIA). The new cargo facility has direct airside access and covers a surface area of 22,604sq ft (2,100m²), bringing the company’s total cargo space to 75,347sq ft (7,000m²) at Vienna International.
The new facility was built by the airport’s operator, Flughafen Wien. Swissport entered into a long-term lease agreement for the facility. As part of this arrangement, Swissport has relocated its cargo documentation services to new offices in the building.
“We are pleased to be able to offer our clients even shorter transit times for their shipments going through Vienna”, said Willy Ruf, senior vice president central Europe of Swissport. “The opening of the new warehouse is another step to meet our strategic goal of offering direct airside access at each of the 15 airports at which we offer cargo services in Germany, Austria and Switzerland”.
