DECEMBER 2017/JANUARY 2018 11 BUSINESS BUZZ Stephane Scholving, WFS' Director of Cargo Sales Europe, said: "These contracts reflect the size and diversity of our cargo operation across France. We are proud to be increasing WFS' relationship with Air France and to be the preferred handling partner of all-cargo and passenger air- lines from Vietnam, Israel, Moldova and Italy. Our highly experienced cargo teams across all of our French stations will ensure we provide the quality of service as well as the high standards of safety and security each of our new customers needs to support the growth of their businesses." Swissport Signs Agreement to Acquire Aerocare Swissport International announced it has signed an agreement to acquire Aerocare and enter into the growing Australasian market. As the largest ground handler in Aus- tralia and New Zealand and the regional leader in flight support services, Aerocare currently serves 36 airports and manages more than 160,000 flights and 15 million passengers annually. "Aerocare has an impressive track record and is the market leader in a region where we anticipate continued growth in the coming years. It perfectly comple- ments our strategic priorities for growth and operational excellence, and we are delighted to have the Aerocare team join- ing Swissport," said Eric Born, president and CEO of Swissport. "We are very excited to become part of the Swissport Group. We have devoted a lot of time and effort into building a safety- and customer-focused business, sharing the same high values as Swis- sport," added Glenn Rutherford, CEO of Aerocare. "I want to thank all of our staff for their continued efforts as we enter this exciting new phase." Following the closing of the acqui- sition, Swissport will invest to further grow and enhance Aerocare's operations and employee base, and Aerocare's man- agement team will continue to lead the Aerocare business from its Australian headquarters.
