The growth of Worldwide Flight Services’ (WFS) cargo handling business at Copenhagen Airport in 2018 is continuing following the signing of new contracts with Air China and Royal Jordanian Airlines.
This follows the start of WFS’ new cargo handling contract at the airport with Cathay Pacific, which commenced at the end of March.
On 30 May, WFS will begin handling cargo carried onboard Air China’s five Airbus A330 passenger flights a week connecting Copenhagen with Beijing Capital International Airport. It expects to handle around 10 tonnes on each flight, which will depart from the Danish capital every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
At the start of June, WFS will also welcome Royal Jordanian as its latest customer in Copenhagen when the airline launches three A320 flights a week to Amman.
Marc Claesen, WFS’ Regional Vice President, said, “We have a very efficient cargo operation in Copenhagen and a reputation for meeting our customers’ individual services needs. This, combined with WFS’ strong network of stations across Europe and the advantages this creates for transit shipments to other destinations, is why we are able to continue to gain the support of leading airlines such as Air China, Cathay Pacific and Royal Jordanian. Our team in Copenhagen look forward to meeting each airline’s expectations for the highest possible levels of safety, security and service that WFS is known for.”
At the end of last year, WFS extended its service offering for airline customers in Copenhagen with the opening of a new temperature-controlled handling facility for pharmaceuticals.
