Swissport, along with its UK-based subsidiary, Servisair, is one of the world’s largest ground handling companies. Having acquired rival Servisair in Dec-2013, it provides ground services for approximately 224 million passengers and handles 4.1 million tonnes of cargo a year on behalf of some 700 client-companies. Swissport International Ltd was owned by Ferrovial and PAI Partners, until HNA Group acquired Swissport from PAI, for a total transaction value of CHF2.7 billion (EUR2.6 billion) in Aug-2015. According to the purchase agreement, Swissport becomes a stand-alone business within HNA Group. It will continue to deliver ground handling and cargo services globally. Swissport is active at more than 290 airports across six continents.
In Dec-2020, Swissport announced the completion of comprehensive financial restructuring. As part of a debt-for-equity swap, ownership of the company has been transferred from HNA Group to a group of financial investors led by Strategic Value Partner, Apollo Global Management, TowerBrook Capital Partners, Ares Management, Cross Ocean Partners and King Street Capital Management.
