WFS scoops Air China deal in Barcelona

Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has won a three-year contract to provide cargo handling services to Air China in Barcelona, extending its agreements with the airline in Spain to a sixth airport.
Air China currently operates four Boeing 777 flights a week from Barcelona to Beijing. This will increase to seven services a week with the launch of Shanghai operations.
WFS already provides cargo handling for Air China flights to and from Madrid as well as offline services in Valencia, Malaga, Bilbao and Alicante.
In Madrid, WFS has also increased its services for Turkish Airlines to accommodate the carrier’s additional 40 tonnes capacity Airbus A310 freighter flights to Istanbul. The airline now operates five all-cargo flights a week between the two cities as well as passenger services.
