Smith, who has 20 years of experience in the industry, has previously held cargo sales management positions at Continental Airlines, American Airlines and Etihad Airways. Her most recent role was regional cargo sales manager, UK and Europe, at Air New Zealand.

In her new role, Smith will be responsible for strengthening WFS’ existing client relationships, as well as leading the onboarding of its new airline customers.

“After such an extremely challenging year for the aviation industry and its partners, it is more important than ever to provide a consistent business model that sustains growth, provides exemplary service, and reinforces our commitment to ‘best-in-class’ safety and security services.

“As we continue to invest in our UK operations, we are confident of securing new cargo and ground handling contracts as well as extending our existing airline agreements, and Jennifer will lead this growth.”
