WFS lands Singapore Airlines contract in the UK

Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has won a three-year contract to provide full cargo handling services for Singapore Airlines Cargo at London Heathrow and at all of its UK regional locations from January 2015.

WFS is set to handle some 46,000 tonnes of cargo a year for the airline via two B747F services a week from the UK and cargo uplift for Singapore Airlines’ twice daily A380 flights and twice-daily B777-300 from London to Singapore, each offering between 10 and 27 tonnes of cargo capacity respectively.

At London Heathrow, WFS’ Building 550 in the World Cargo Centre is undergoing significant investment prior to the start of the contract with new equipment and systems, more cargo acceptance doors and extra operational offices as well as refurbished offices for Singapore Airlines Cargo’s team based at Heathrow.

Pat Roberts, vice president UK & Ireland for WFS, said: “We are extremely proud that this new contract now makes us the airline’s sole handler in the UK and Ireland. This contract is a significant addition to our business in the UK and Ireland.

“It is also a tribute to the service levels provided by the WFS teams at all of our locations that we have been successful in what was, not surprisingly, a very competitive tender process.”
