Ray Jetha, Senior Vice President, Sales & Business Development at WFS

Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has expanded its ground handling services at Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) airport after winning a three-year contract from Qantas.

WFS will handle some 3,400 tonnes annually for Australia’s flag carrier, which operates seven A380 passenger flights per week from the the US hub to Sydney, as well as a weekly Boeing 747-400 freighter service.

The new agreement covers ground handling services for Qantas’ passenger operations and cargo and ramp handling for its freighter flights. WFS already provides cargo handling services for the airline in Los Angeles.

WFS’s client base of international and domestic airline customers at DFW also includes AirBridgeCargo Airlines, Air China, Air France-KLM, Avianca, British Airways, Cargolux, China Airlines, Emirates Airline, Frontier Airlines, Lufthansa Cargo, Korean Air, Nippon Cargo Airlines and USPS.

Ray Jetha, senior vice president, sales and business development at WFS, said: “Qantas’ decision to award us this important new contract reflects the reputation we have established as the premier service provider for leading airlines at Dallas/Fort Worth due to our operational processes, priority focus on safety and security, business transparency and technological advances.”
