Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has won a three-year contract to handle cargo for Singapore Airlines new services from Stockholm.
At the end of May, the airline launched five Airbus A350-900 flights a week connecting Singapore and Stockholm via Moscow. Services from Stockholm Arlanda Airport operate every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
With cargo capacity on the route shared with Moscow, WFS in Stockholm expects to handle 3,000-4,000 tonnes a year for Singapore Airlines.
This is the second new contract in quick succession for WFS in Sweden. Earlier this month, WFS also announced it had won a contract with Qatar Airways in Stockholm to handle some 12,000 tonnes a year carried onboard the airline’s 13 flights per week to Doha.
“Singapore Airlines’ decision to work with WFS at yet another station in Europe is another big boost for our cargo business in the region. It also once again reflects our ability to meet the highest service standards set by the world’s leading airlines,” said Marc Claesen, WFS’ Regional Vice President.
