Groundforce baggage handling company returns to Faro airport

After a seven-year break, baggage handling company Grounforce Portugal has announced it is returning to Faro Airport.

It will be providing its services to passengers of British Airways, Iberia, BA City Flyer, Vueling and Air Lingues at a time when the airport has just inaugurated a new terminal building.

The company’s Executive President, Paulo Neto Leite, says that 140 new jobs will be created, some of which may be filled by people who lost their job in 2010 when the business pulled out of Faro due to financial issues.

Leite says that the return proves that the company has a “solid structure” that will allow it to provide a “service of excellence like it already does at airports in Lisbon, Porto, Funchal and Porto Santo.”
