WFS in triple carrier contracts

Comment on this article

Cathay, Ethiopian and Allegiant have all awarded ground handling contracts to WFS in North America.

At Newark Liberty International airport, Cathay Pacific has extended its passenger handling agreement of the past five years to now also include ramp, cabin cleaning and de-icing services for its daily Boeing 777-300 flights to Hong Kong.

Under previously won contracts, WFS also provides full handling services for Cathay Pacific in Seattle and passenger services at New York JFK.

WFS will now also provide ramp, passenger services and aircraft de-icing for Ethiopian Airlines under a new three-year contract awarded at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental. Ethiopian serves the airport with three-times weekly Boeing 787 services to Lomé and Addis Ababa. WFS also provides ground handling services for the airline at New York JFK and Chicago.

Last month, WFS also commenced its latest above and below the wing ground handling contract with Allegiant Air. The three-year agreement will see WFS providing services for some 400 Airbus A319/320 flights a year at Baltimore/Washington, serving Savannah/Hilton Head International airport in Georgia, Ashville Regional airport in North Carolina and Sarasota-Bradenton International in Florida.
