WFS wins new cargo contract in Spain

Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has won a contract to provide cargo handling services to Hungarian cargo charter carrier Fleet Air in Spain.

The contract covers cargo handling in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, and other regional airports as well as ground handling services in Madrid, Seville, Santiago, Oviedo, and Vitoria. 

The airline offers ad hoc all-cargo flights using an ATR72 freighter.

“Fleet Air chose WFS at its preferred handler based on WFS’ ability to provide both ground and cargo solutions in Spain, and to benefit from a single point of contact for all services,” the handler said.

WFS has also recently won handling contracts in Madrid with Cobra Jet and at various airports in Spain with Skyvalte.

Spanish charter airline, Privilege Style, an existing customer for cargo handling, has also awarded WFS a ramp handling contract.

WFS currently handles the whole operation for Privilege’s B777-200 passenger freighter flights in Madrid.

“Spain is a very important and growing market for WFS. We are continuing to invest in our service capability at the airports where we are present to provide full service solutions for the many airlines already operating to and from Spain, as well as those which will come in the future,” said WFS’ commercial director in Spain, Juan Luis Viton.

“Our latest contracts with Fleet Air, Cobra Jet, Skyvalet and Privilege Style are perfect examples of the range of handling solutions we can offer for all aviation and airline requirements.”
