Air China Cargo rewards WFS with new 3-year freighter contract

Worldwide Flight Services’ (WFS) commitment to operational excellence and investment in its cargo handling infrastructure at Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport has been rewarded with a new three-year contract extension to serve Air China Cargo’s freighter services at the Spanish airport.

The new contract will see WFS handle over 36,000 tonnes of cargo a year for the airline, which currently operates eight Boeing 777 freighter flights a week to Madrid, originating from Hangzhou and Guanzhou via Beijing.

As well as cargo handling services, WFS will also continue to provide aircraft ground handling services for Air China Cargo’s freighter operations in Madrid.

Additionally, outside of this contract, WFS continues to provide cargo handling for Air China’s road feeder services.

Humberto Castro, Managing Director of WFS in Spain said: “Air China Cargo is a very significant customer of WFS and we enjoy a close working partnership with the airline.

“With the high volumes of e-commerce traffic, especially, from China to Europe, we fully understand the need for fast and efficient handling services to meet the airline’s requirements.

“This new three-year contract reflects the airline’s trust in WFS and the operational excellence our team in Madrid are consistently delivering,” .
