Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has opened its latest and third cargo handling facility at Copenhagen Airport.

The new Terminal 3 cargo building adds a further 3,700 sq. m warehouse facility to WFS’ handling infrastructure in Copenhagen, where it handles over 100,000 tonnes of cargo a year, carried onboard passenger and freighter services.

Since opening its first Scandinavian handling operation in Copenhagen in 2008, WFS has become the largest cargo handler at the airport, serving over 30 airline clients with flights to the Danish capital. It also provides cargo handling services for more than 125 offline carriers. The original 4,600 sq m cargo warehouse terminal was added to with a new 3,000 sq. m Terminal 2 facility in 2010, and, in 2019, WFS also invested in a new GDP-certified Pharma facility, increasing its footprint by a further 1,500 sq. m, to support the cluster of life science companies in the Greater Copenhagen area.

“Copenhagen is a very progressive airport with a strong commitment to supporting its cargo customers. Since 2008, WFS has also demonstrated its confidence in the Danish and regional air cargo market through our continued investment and expansion, and we will continue to play a lead role in the growth of the airport and the airlines who fly here. We see a great future,” said WFS’ managing director Scandinavia, Thomas Egeland.
