When it comes to the careful handling of millions of dollars worth of aircraft at LABACE 2012 at São Paulo (Brazil) Congonhas Airport, Swissport was the pick to position 75 aircraft on the static display ramp yesterday and today with nary a ding. The ground-handling specialist also has an exhibit at the show, and was the aircraft handler at LABACE 2011 as well.

Swissport has more than 5,000 employees and a presence at more than a dozen airports across Brazil, including at the cities of Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Recife and Rio de Janeiro. In addition to ground handling, the company provides cargo and aircraft security.

Worldwide, Swissport International provides ground services for some 70 million passengers and 2.8 million tons of cargo a year for some 650 companies at 176 airports in 38 countries.
