Who Does Swissport Handle At BOS?

I applied for my first aviation related job today as a Passenger Service Agent at Logan for Swissport. I was wondering whether Swissport handled any airlines that weren't at Terminal E in Boston? I know they handle several in E which is where I really want to work, but am unsure whether they handle customer service at any other terminals in Logan.

Also if you have any tips for getting the job they are welcome.

Thanks

Finnair is seasonal (and a leisure flight) and Flyglobespan no longer serves BOS. But the other four are Swissport.

Quoting RicardoFG (Reply 2):
• Lufthansa
• Swiss International Air Lines
• Virgin Atlantic Airways

Where the check-in and gate services are concerned, they have the same team servicing a single airline, e.g. always the same staff handling the LX flight or the LH flights, even wearing their uniform. Only the supervisor / flight manager is from the airline itself

OK. the last time I went through, I asked the Lufthansa staff and they said it was about 50-50 Lufthansa/Swissport although I don't know about Swiss. All the staff working for the Lufthansa flight had Lufthansa uniforms though, and not generic clothing.

If I am accepted for the position, does anyone know how long it takes to go through all the TSA/Homeland Security checks to get credentials and what not?


Thanks for all your help, now all I have to do is get the job!!  Smile  Wink

Exactly. Each airline has dedicated staff wearing the respective airlines' uniforms. So a Swissport employee working the Virgin flights will always work the Virgin flights, someone working the LH flights will always work the LH flights. Each airline, with the exception of LX has at least some staff. For VS, management is VS employees. For LH, the managers and some ground staff CSAs were LH employees as well. I'm not sure if that's changed in the year since I left working at BOS. When I was working there, LH were still Servisair so things may have changed with the change to Swissport.

It usually takes three to four weeks to get your inital Massport ID. Be prepared to make three trips to the airport for the ID. Each visit takes about an hour or two. Pay attention during the inital training session. There is a verbal quiz during the final visit on that material. If you don't get the questions right you go home without your badge and get to come back the next week. For those that are worried I'm giving away state secrets by posting this process relax. Nothing in this post will let the terrorist win.
