With the long running rumours of something happening between servisair, swissport and dnata, I'm very surprised that this site is not rife with speculation. It was red hot during servisair/aviance buyout

I'm with you TOWTEAMBASE I'm very surprised that nothing has been said what so ever (maybe it's all lies )

Best thing that could happen is that they band together and at the very least get rid of a certain large Scottish based handling agent that treats their staff like absolute shi... poo! Best move I ever made was getting out of there!!

I know what the rumour is about but I'd rather wait until I hear it officially, but it is something major between Swissport and Servisair.

Is a merger on the cards?

First I heard of any of this was yesterday, so rumours arent rife at all.

This all now seems weird as rumours are rife around the stations, yet very little people on here are aware. It sounds like another servisair/aviance deal, but this time in swissport favour. May just be speculation.......again

It is what I heard yesterday.Swissport or Dnata buyout of ground handling and cargo although thought it was only at our station mind you. Its far from being a hot rumour in our station though. Only one person has mentioned it to me nd you kow how rumours go in an airport!

TBH as long as I get my wages every month I dont care who is employing me,and if they can swallow up the smart handling branch of the business and merge it all back into the one operation then all the better.

would make sense! My airport are rife with rumors which I know the industry runs on them but I to am shocked about the lack of posts about it on here! I have heard that Servisair at my airport are up for sale with Swissport more than likely stepping in and taking over. Apparently there is to be an announcement this week!

But Still, May all be just Rumors!
