Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has won three new cargo handling contracts in the US.
The handler has announced deals with Polar Air Cargo in Cincinnati, LOT Polish Airlines in Newark and Swiss International Air Lines seasonal service to San Diego.
The three-year contract with Polar Air Cargo and its partners includes freight acceptance, delivery, build-up and break-down services.
The contract, which is to provide warehouse services for both Polar and its partner, DHL, will see WFS handle some 86,000 tonnes per annum for their Boeing 747 and 767 freighter operations to and from the Ohio airport.
WFS personnel will work from Polar’s 100,000 sq ft off-airport warehouse facility in the city.
WFS has recruited nearly 90 employees to serve the new contract.
In Newark, LOT Polish Airlines has signed a two-year contract for WFS to provide passenger, ramp and cargo services to cover seven B787 flights a week to Warsaw.
In support of its seasonal services connecting San Diego and Zurich, operated by its daughter company Edelweiss Air, SWISS has signed a contract for WFS to provide cargo warehouse services for the next three years, commencing in June 2017.
In April, WFS announced three new contracts at Los Angeles airport.
