Swissport Cargo Services Austria has been awarded the TAPA FSR-C certification for its air cargo logistics at Vienna International Airport (VIE). The new certification underlines Swissport’s dedication to ensuring state-of-the-art security measures within its cargo handling.

Swissport Cargo Services Austria received TAPA FSR-C certification from Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) EMEA, constituting a significant milestone for its air cargo handling operations at Vienna International Airport (VIE) in Fischamend. This certification strengthens further Swissport’s position as a trusted partner for handling high-value and theft-sensitive goods.

Andreas Ottendorf, Station Manager for Vienna and Graz, expressed his enthusiasm regarding this milestone, stating, "The TAPA certification not only validates Swissport Cargo Services GmbH’s adherence to industry-leading security protocols but also solidifies its position as a premier provider of freight services in Austria."

Looking ahead, Swissport Cargo Services Austria GmbH is committed to further enhancing its security protocols. Plans are already underway to certify the whole site of Fischamend including all tenants for the TAPA FSR-A certification, representing the highest standard of security within the industry. This ambitious goal indicates Swissport's dedication to continuously improving its security practices, ensuring the utmost safety and protection of its clients' assets.

Swissport inaugurated the 8,000 sqm air cargo warehouse in Fischamend in 2021. The new facility is connected with Swissport’s on-airport cargo center at Vienna International Airport by a dedicated electric truck. This allowed Swissport to further expand its cargo activities and to grow its share in the business area of forwarder handling. In 2024, 120,000 tons are expected to be handled in Vienna.
