Worldwide Flight Services has expanded its cargo handling operation at Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International airport.

The expansion is aimed at accommodating new contracts with Lufthansa and Swiss WorldCargo, the air cargo division of SWISS.

WFS expects to handle some 23,000 tonnes per annum for the two airlines, which have both signed three year handling agreements that commenced on September 1 2020.

In its latest investment in South Africa, WFS has acquired the lease on a further 3,600 square metres of warehouse capacity in Johannesburg, has purchased additional cargo handling equipment and increased its workforce.
