Singapore Airlines has selected WFS to provide cargo handling services for its new flight to the UK, while it has also renewed its deal with the firm covering other countries.

The new deal covers the handling of cargo on Singapore Airline’s new flight from Singapore Changi Airport to London Gatwick.

The direct flight will launch this month and will operate five-times per week using Airbus A350-900 aircraft.

Meanwhile, the airline has also signed contract renewals of three years for handling services covering France, Belgium and the rest of the UK.

The deal in the UK also includes road feeder services for its current Heathrow and Manchester flights.

The two companies have worked together at Paris CDG since 1986, while Singapore’s flights to Belgium land at Brussels where the two have partnered since 2021.

“We are proud to be growing our relationship with Singapore Airlines and to be supporting the airline’s global reputation for service excellence. As part of SATS Group, WFS is now able to offer an end-to-end cargo handling solution on these routes, which leverages the uniqueness of our partnership and ownership,” said John Batten, chief executive, Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia (EMEAA) at WFS.
