Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has strengthened its position as the largest cargo handling at London’s Heathrow Airport by winning a new contract from Continental Airlines and acquiring the lease on a further 60,000 tonnes capacity cargo terminal. Continental has transferred its business to WFS to join forces with merger partner, United Airlines, a longstanding WFS customer in the UK. To accommodate this growth, WFS said it has taken a lease on Building 551 in the World Cargocentre at Heathrow, increasing its overall on/off-airport capacity in London to 23,225 sq metres. Meanwhile, WFS has also been awarded new terminal handling and cargo handling contracts in Barcelona and Amsterdam by Concorde Aviation and Surinam Airways respectively.
