(ONLINE UPDATE) Swissport Fights Back

Win, lose or draw, Swissport International Ltd., intends to fight the verdict and re-enter the Ukrainian market.


“Ukraine offers great business opportunities in a very dynamic market environment,” he told The Load Star even before the appellate court reached its verdict “But at the same time, investors need to be aware that there are serious risks that they have to take into account.”

Rather than trying again at a joint venture, Skinner also raised a second option.

“We are still interested in doing business in Kiev and some other Ukrainian airports,” he told Cargo Forwarder after the appellate court effectively forced Swissport out of the country, “but would rather prefer a franchise partner running the handlng activities under our company’s name.”
