Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) was awarded two major contracts to handle new freighter operations for AirBridgeCargo Airlines’ (ABC) and Air China Cargo at Madrid Airport, a press release confirmed.
AirBridgeCargo chose WFS to provide ramp handling for its three weekly Boeing 747F flights to Madrid, whilst Air China Cargo will rely on WFS for ramp and cargo handling services for the airline’s three weekly B777 and B747 all-cargo flights.
WFS operates three cargo centres at Madrid Airport with over 10,500 sqm of surface space, which include dedicated areas to handle all types of goods, from general cargo, courier and express shipments to temperature-sensitive perishables and pharmaceuticals, AVI and valuable products.
WFS says its team members are trained to handle both passenger and freighter aircraft, supported by an extensive fleet of new GSE equipment to ensure the safe and secure handling of all aircraft and cargo.
“Freighter operations are very important to support Spain’s import and export trade, especially at this time when there has been a significant loss of capacity onboard passenger flights due to COVID-19. These new freighter services by two of the world’s leading airlines are an important boost for Spain’s freight forwarding community and we will use our expertise to ensure we deliver the best customer experience for both airlines. This is more good news for WFS in Spain as we continue our recovery from the impact of the coronavirus on the aviation industry,” said Humberto Castro, managing director of WFS in Spain.
Back in July, WFS was also awarded contracts by Airest at Madrid Airport and by Air France and Wizz Air in Seville, whilst August saw the ground handler close a deal with Air France KLM Martinair Cargo at Brussels Airport.
