Are you enthusiastic, organised and dedicated? As a Swissport Baggage Handling Agent you'd play a vital role in a busy airport operation. Your focus would be on delivering a seamless, safe and efficient service to the many domestic and international airlines that choose Swissport to provide their on-the-ground services.

Swissport is the world's leading provider of ground and air cargo services, active at 315 airports in 50 countries across all five continents. We're known for our highly motivated and dynamic team which has a "can do, will do" attitude, delivering the highest standards for our clients, along with a memorable passenger experience. 


The role

When a passenger checks in at the airport, their luggage is placed on a moving bag belt, which is transferred to the bag room for sorting and allocation to the correct flight. This is the realm of the Baggage Handling Agent.

Once the aircraft arrives, it is the Baggage Handling Agent’s role to marshal the aircraft onto the parking bay and position all the ground support equipment (GSE) and guide the passengers into the terminal.  They are then required to unload the aircraft of passenger baggage and freight and transfer it to the terminal for passenger pickup. Prior to passengers boarding the aircraft for its next flight sector, Baggage Handling Agents may clean the aircraft cabin and service the aircraft potable water and lavatory systems. When all baggage checks are complete, Baggage Handling Agents will then load the aircraft holds with the passenger baggage, and any additional freight, before marshalling or pushing the aircraft back onto the taxi way using a specialist push back tractor.

Baggage Handling Agents have an extremely important role in relation to airport safety and security, as such all employees must be eligible to hold an Aviation Security Identification Card.

The airport is a fast-paced and safety focused team environment. The work hours are variable to meet airline schedules, and include early starts, late finishes and weekends.
