Lufthansa picks WFS for Newark ramp handling

Germany’s Lufthansa has awarded a three-year ramp handling contract to Paris-headquartered Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) at Newark Liberty International Airport in the US.
The deal comes into effect with the start of the Lufthansa Group’s summer schedule, which includes three Lufthansa flights per day to Frankfurt, Dusseldorf and Munich as well as daily services operated by Austrian Airlines and Swiss International Airlines.
WFS also won several other ground handling contracts at Newark earlier this year, with new customers including El Al, WOW Air and Primera Air.
Tricia Casalinho, senior vice president ground handling at WFS in North America, said that growing WFS’s ground handling business globally is one of the company’s top priorities.
