Swissport is opening an air cargo centre at Central Japan International Airport (Centrair) in November 2022. The new facility will support the development of air transport and logistics for central Japan’s Tokai region and will be Swissport’s third domestic base, following Narita International and Kansai International Airport.
Set to open on November 1, the new air cargo centre is located on the north side of International Cargo Warehouse 1 at Chubu Centrair International Airport. The expansion of Swissport cargo facilities and services reflect the steady growth around Japan’s Tokai region, home to many large manufacturing companies.
Swissport Japan was established in 2006 as a joint venture between Swissport International AG and Marubeni Corporation. The company has been providing airport ground services including passenger, ramp, cargo, lounge and executive aviation at six major airports in Japan: Narita, Haneda, Chubu, Kansai, Fukuoka, and Naha.
