Egyptair appoints WFS as Brussels and Schiphol cargo handler

23 / 01 / 2018

Egyptair has awarded a cargo and mail handling contract to Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) to cover its services at Amsterdam and Brussels airports.

The three-year contract, which commences in March 2018, will see WFS handling cargo and mail for the airline’s daily Boeing 737-800 from Amsterdam to Cairo as well as its five times weekly B737-800 services from Brussels to Egypt’s capital city.

The two companies do already have an existing relationship at the airports; in 2017, Egyptair chose WFS to also provide trucking services connecting Amsterdam and Brussels with Ostend.

Marc Claesen, Regional Vice President at WFS, said: “Providing trucking services for Egyptair in recent months has enabled us to demonstrate the benefits we can offer to our airline customers.

"Our growing relationship has now resulted in WFS now being chosen to provide full cargo and mail handling services at two of the main European airports in Egyptair’s network.

"We look forward to supporting the airline’s continued growth in Amsterdam and Brussels and to providing the highest levels of safety, security and service.”

WFS has been awarded new or extended contracts by customers including Oman Air and Japan Airlines in the Netherlands over the last year.

In Belgium its successes have included new agreements with MNG Airlines and CAL Cargo Airlines as well as Japan Airlines and Oman Air.
