Ciao: WFS sells ground handling business in Italy

Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has sold its ground handling business in Italy to Inceptus.
WFS has operated ATA, a ground handler in Italy, since June 2015 through its fully owned subsidiary WFS Ground Italy, which has now been sold to Inceptus.
WFS is no longer involved in ground handling activities in Italy but will continue to own and operate its growing cargo handling business in Milan.
John Batten, EVP Cargo Europe Middle East & Asia and acting EVP Europe Ground Handling at WFS, said: “We believe this development is in the best interests of all parties, and especially the ground handling customers and employees of WFS Ground Italy and ATA.
"Inceptus plans to continue the operations of both companies in all existing airports and for all existing customers. It has also convinced us of its intention to provide great service and grow its ground handling business in Italy with the help of the existing management team. We will provide all of the necessary support to ensure a seamless transition to the new owners.”
Under the terms of the agreement, Inceptus  will continue to utilise the WFS Ground Italy name until the end of August 2017.
