“I am extremely pleased to add these two world-class airlines to our customer base at Copenhagen,” said Nils Pries Knudsen, Senior Vice President, Swissport’s Cargo Services division, Europe. “We look forward to continuing to build on our partnership and to applying Swissport’s industry-leading processes and expertise to maximize the efficiency of Finnair’s and Lufthansa’s cargo services at Copenhagen.”

Swissport began offering cargo handling services at Copenhagen in July to launch customer Swiss WorldCargo, and plans to offer the full range of cargo handling services in Denmark and eventually across the whole Nordic region.
