The staff will work for the SAirGroup's handling company, Swissport Zurich, and should be in place by the time the summer 2001 schedules go into effect.

Swissair said an internal working group had been studying the problem of delays for six months and was now beginning to implement more than 80 individual measures aimed at improving the punctuality of Swissair flights.

A statement said that the extra staff would be helping customers and ensuring correct and timely process management in customer-related service aspects.
