Ground handler, Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has won cargo handling contracts with Air China Cargo and AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) at Madrid Airport.
WFS will provide ramp handling for AirBridgeCargo’s three weekly Boeing 747F flights to Madrid, while for Air China Cargo, the ground handler will provide ramp and cargo handling services for the airline’s three weekly B777 and B747 all-cargo flights bound for the Spanish capital.
WFS operates three cargo centres at Madrid Airport with over 10,500 sq mt 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.
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 from 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,” Castro added.
WFS teams 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. In July, WFS was awarded contracts in Madrid by Airest and in Seville by Air France and Wizz Air.
