Now that servisair will handle both air berlin AND germanwings,how long before one airline complains that the other is receiving preferential treatment?
And why have germanwings only agreed to a one year contract? Maybe they can see problems coming.

It would appear that Swissport dealt with the majority of the diverts into stn over the last few days.Talking to reps would suggest that they (swissport) did so with a great deal of professionalism,skill and resiliance in what must have been very demanding circumstances.Airlines take note.

any truth in the rumour that BA are looking to change handling agents for their divert contract at Stn as part of the ongoing cost cutting exercise?

Servisair got the UPS contract with the Aviance takeover, but now looks like they have lost it to Swissport.

swissport and Cargo

It would seem that there has been a management misjudgement about being able to borrow the equipment required for cargo aircraft, this morning they were having to use a HILO as a 20 foot pallet dolly due to them having none of their own and Servisair understandably not being willing to get them out of a tight spot.

you can see there point however it didn't stop servisair using there Hi lo on friday without asking either. They used it on 2 Titans and a Jet 2. Servisair can't of thought that they would keep all the cargo contracts once they were over there alone, could they?

Poor old servisair,lost contracts, and the realisation that there is competition out there.This is just the beginning.They would be wise to keep on the good side of swissport......they may wish to work for 'the new kid on the block' very soon!!!!!!

swissport cargo

What goes around comes around,
Swissport used to do cargo up until a couple of years ago, but lost the Titan mail contract to Aviance.
Looks like its turning full circle, again.
