Swissport Opens New Aspire Lounge In Ottawa
“We are excited to open our Ottawa lounge as part of our growing Canadian and global network. It will make travelling for our guests as relaxing as possible”, says Shaun Weston, Vice President Global Lounges at Swissport International. “The lounge at the airport of Canada’s capital, Ottawa, will be cutting edge, bringing together our new interior design and learnings and experience from years of successfully operating lounges across the globe.”
The opening comes after Swissport was chosen as the preferred lounge operator by the Ottawa International Airport Authority. Aspire completed the construction and interior design works in record time. The Authority’s CEO and President, Mark Laroche, says: “Swissport’s commitment to excellence in ground handling at Ottawa airport, their proven lounge expertise, and their compelling proposal have instilled a high level of confidence in the future Aspire Lounge and its ability to delight our clients”.
As part of its airport ground services portfolio Swissport manages 49 lounges at more than 30 airports in 13 countries under its hospitality brand Aspire Airport Lounges. Among them are Calgary, Copenhagen, Dubai, Dublin, Edinburgh, Helsinki, London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Montreal, Manchester, Nairobi and Zurich. Last year, Swissport welcomed over five million airline passengers across its global lounge network. Over the coming five years, Swissport plans to significantly grow its Aspire lounge hospitality business.
