WFS scoops EVA Air cargo handling deal in Seattle

EVA Air has signed a new three-year cargo handling contract with Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) in Seattle.

The deal extends the two companies’ more than 15 years of working together in North America.

The agreement sees WFS take responsibility for handling all cargo onboard the Taiwanese airline’s daily Boeing 777 passenger flights connecting Taipei and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

WFS already holds contracts with EVA Air at the airport for below-wing ramp handling services for its passenger operations as well as ramp and cargo handling of the airline’s freighter flights.

Overall, WFS expects to handle some 12m kg of air cargo annually for EVA Air in Seattle.

WFS handles more than 83m kgs of air cargo per year for the airline in North America through other contracts covering Newark, New York JFK, Houston, Chicago, Pittsburgh and Los Angeles.

WFS in Seattle has also recently won new cargo handling contracts with both Aloha Cargo and Polar Air Cargo.

In total, WFS now handles more than 28m kgs a year for eight airline customers at its two facilities at the airport.
