Etihad Airways has appointed Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) as its cargo handler for its first-ever service from Abu Dhabi to Denmark.
The new service to Copenhagen operates four times per week to the Danish capital using a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
The first flight took place on October 1.
The two already work together on other services, with WFS handling around 5,000 tonnes per year for the airline.
WFS’s managing director of Scandinavia, Thomas Egeland, said: “We look forward to expanding our relationship with the airline to include another station in the WFS network. Winning a major new customer contract like this validates our decision to invest in our cargo services in Copenhagen.”
At the end of 2022, WFS opened a third cargo handling facility at Copenhagen Airport, adding a further 3,700m² warehouse facility to its local handling infrastructure, which manages over 100,000 tonnes of cargo a year
Thomas Schürmann, head of cargo operations & delivery at Etihad Cargo, added: “ The addition of Copenhagen to Etihad Cargo’s existing partnership with WFS will benefit the carrier’s customers and partners and ensure Etihad Cargo can offer the same high standard of cargo handling they have become accustomed to across the airline’s global network.”
