WFS has integrated the cargo handling operations of three new airline customers at Los Angeles International Airport in four days.

25 April, 2017 - Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has successfully integrated the cargo handling operations of three new major airline customers at Los Angeles International Airport in just four days.

The contracts with AirBridgeCargo Airlines, Swiss WorldCargo and LOT Polish Airlines will increase WFS’ cargo volumes by over 55,000 tonnes a year at the airport.

AirBridgeCargo operates six Boeing 747-8 Freighter services a week connecting Los Angeles with its Moscow hub via Chicago, Atlanta and Amsterdam. WFS’ three-year contract with Swiss WorldCargo is to handle cargo on its daily Boeing 777-300 services to Zurich, while the new two-year agreement with LOT covers cargo and ramp handling as well as cleaning services for its four Boeing 787 flights a week to Warsaw.

With these latest contract wins, WFS, the world’s largest cargo handler, now provides services for 23 airline customers in Los Angeles.

Rinzing Wangyal, WFS’ Vice President Business Planning in North America, said: "We handled 280,000 tonnes of cargo for customers in Los Angeles in 2016 so it is a major airport operation for us already, and these new contracts strengthen our position even further. Normally, we would not expect to start operations with three major customers within just a four-day period but this is what was required by our clients. The fact that we were able to do this so seamlessly and receive such positive feedback from our customers is a tremendous tribute to the expertise, hard work and enthusiasm of the WFS team in Los Angeles. We’re proud of their achievement."
