Qatar awards Stockholm ground handling deal to WFS

Qatar Airways has selected Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) to provide it with cargo handling services at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.
The three-year deal will see WFS provide cargo handling for Qatar’s 13 direct flights a week between the Swedish capital and Doha.
WFS expects to handle some 12,000 tonnes a year for Qatar Airways at the Airport, which opened in 2012.
The new contract extends WFS’ working relationship with Qatar Airways in Europe, where it is already providing cargo handling services for the airline in Madrid, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Frankfurt and Paris.
Marc Claesen, WFS’ Regional Vice President, said: “We are delighted to now be working with Qatar Airways at our two hubs in Scandinavia and at other WFS stations in Europe."
In May, the ground handler sold its Italian business.
