WFS picks up five new handling contracts in France

Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has scooped five new cargo handling contracts by passenger and freighter airlines in France.

Four of the contracts cover Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport as well as handling at WFS’ other 11 cargo stations across France.

Belly carrier Vietnam Airlines has renewed its handling agreement with WFS, while CAL Cargo Airlines has appointed WFS to provide receiving points for cargo, which is then trucked to Belgium to connect with its Boeing 747 Freighter services in Liege.

WFS has also won contracts for the whole of France from the Moldovan airline FlyONE for freight carried onboard its weekly Airbus A319/320 belly flights to Chișinău International Airport as well as from the Italian carrier, Meridiana.

Air France has also chosen WFS as its cargo handling partner at three gateways in France; Lyon, Toulouse and Nantes.

WFS’ director of cargo sales for Europe, Stephane Scholving says: “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 airlines 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.”
