WFS signs contracts in the US with five major airlines

Five global airlines have signed up for more Worldwide Flight Services’ (WFS) passenger, ramp and cargo handling services in the US.
WOW Air has chosen WFS to provide ramp, passenger and cargo services for its three Airbus A330-300 flights each week from Dallas/Fort Worth to Keflavik International Airport, serving Iceland’s capital city Reykjavik. The three-year contract extends WFS’ existing services for the airline at Newark and New York JFK.
SN Brussels will this week become the latest member of the Lufthansa Group to commence a handling contract with WFS in New York. WFS will manage passenger services for the airline’s three flights a week from New York JFK to Brussels.
June 2018 also sees the start of a new three-year ramp handling contract with Emirates Airline in Los Angeles, supporting its daily Airbus A380 operations to Dubai. WFS already provides handling services for Emirates in Chicago and Houston.
In Chicago, WFS has also been awarded a three-year passenger services contract by Ethiopian Airlines to serve customers travelling on its three Boeing 787-800 flights each week to Addis Ababa.
With effect from 1 August, WFS will also begin a three-year contract in Los Angeles providing ramp services for EVA Air’s 21 Boeing 777-300 flights a week to Taiwan.
Michael Duffy, WFS’ Americas chief executive, commented: “These new contracts continue WFS’ great start to 2018 in the US. Not only are these all major customers, they are also existing WFS clients who are growing their business with us at more of their airport gateways, which is a tribute to our reputation for service quality and the performance levels delivered by the WFS team in the US for safety, security and customer service.”
