IACA’s associate membership programme is designed for service providers, manufacturers, consultancies and law firms working within the aviation sector, and facilitates strong contacts between these associates and IACA’s member airlines.
BRUSSELS - Swissport Hellas, belonging to Swissport International group, the world’s leading provider of ground services to the aviation sector, has joined IACA (International Air Carrier Association) as an associate member.

Swissport is a global aviation services group which provides ground services on behalf of some 650 client-companies in the aviation sector. In Greece, Swissport is leading the local market, having handled during 2012 more than 80 airlines, 130,000 aircraft movements and over 15 million of passengers.

IACA’s associate membership programme is designed for service providers, manufacturers, consultancies and law firms working within the aviation sector, and facilitates strong contacts between these associates and IACA’s member airlines.

Sylviane Lust, Director General of IACA, said: "I am very pleased to welcome Swissport Hellas as a new associate member. Many of our airlines work with Swissport and they are an important service provider in the destinations that our member airlines fly to.  It is therefore essential we have good relations with Swissport and this partnership will help to strengthen our relationship with the company.”

On joining IACA, John Zermas, Commercial Manager of Swissport Hellas said: “Hellas (Greece) is one of the many countries Swissport has presence around the globe. Greece remains one of the favorite and attractive destinations for millions of people who are seeking a paradise of enticing crystalline waters, bright, warm sun, short escapes, unwinding careless moments, coupled with a touch of history, delicious tastes, exquisite local products and small but precious gastronomic treasures!”

“All these people entrust their annual travel dream to the modern aviators, to all those airlines - many being members of IACA - who operate to Greece and assign to Swissport the privilege of looking after their greatest asset: their passengers and my country’s guests.”

Mr Juan Jose Andres Alvez, EVP Ground Handling Europe, Africa & Latin America adds: “Besides beautiful Greece, Swissport’s workforce of 40,000 professionals, in 37 other countries on five continents, is looking after more than 118 million passengers on behalf of our 650 client-companies in the aviation sector.”
