WFS to handle ABC Airlines, Air China Cargo’s new freighter operations at Madrid Airport
Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has won two major contracts to handle AirBridgeCargo Airlines’ (ABC) and Air China Cargo’s new freighter operations at Madrid Airport.
AirBridgeCargo has appointed WFS to provide ramp handling for its three Boeing 747F flights a week to Madrid, while Air China Cargo has chosen WFS for ramp and cargo handling services for the airline’s three B777 and B747 all-cargo flights per week to the Spanish capital.
WFS operates three cargo centres at Madrid Airport with over 10,500 sqm of surface space. These facilities include dedicated areas to handle all types of goods, from general cargo, courier and express shipments to temperature-sensitive perishables and pharmaceuticals, AVI and valuable products. The WFS team are trained to handle both passenger and freighter aircraft, supported by an extensive fleet of new GSE equipment to ensure the safe and secure handling of all aircraft and cargoes.
Humberto Castro, Managing Director of WFS in Spain, said: “Freighter operations are very important to support Spain’s import and export trade, especially at this time when there has been a significant loss of capacity onboard passenger flights due to COVID-19. These new freighter services by two of the world’s leading airlines are an important boost for Spain’s freight forwarding community and we will use our expertise to ensure we deliver the best customer experience for both airlines. This is more good news for WFS in Spain as we continue our recovery from the impact of the Coronavirus on the aviation industry.”
WFS provides a full portfolio of services for airlines in Madrid, managing ramp operations as well as passenger and cargo handling. In Spain in July, WFS was also awarded contracts in Madrid by Airest and in Seville by Air France and Wizz Air.
