AirBridgeCargo signs 10-year contract with WFS in Liege

Comment on this article

AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has extended its partnership with Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) by awarding it a 10-year cargo handling contract at Liege Airport.

WFS will handle import and export cargo on ABC’s 15 flights a week and WFS has subleased half of ABC’s new cargo terminal to support its other handling clients at the Belgian airport.

The 12,500 square metre Building 24 has the capacity to handle 150,000 tonnes of cargo a year and WFS will handle Volga-Dnepr Group airlines when required.

The building has a dedicated pharma zone and the WFS team will meet ABC’s requirements for shipments such as high-value and perishable cargo.

The Liege deal follows the news in June that ABC had signed a three-year contract to be the launch customer of WFS’ new cargo terminal at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Barry Nassberg, Group Chief Commercial Officer of WFS, says: “These types of contracts provide stability for both partners, are great news for our employees, and enable us to support AirBridgeCargo’s long-term growth strategy which requires us to deliver high quality, reliable and innovative cargo handling services for its global customers.”

WFS also provides handling services for ABC in Frankfurt, Paris, Madrid, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, Los Angeles and Hong Kong.
