Cargo Handling

Singapore Airlines extends handling contracts with WFS in Paris and London

Singapore Airlines has renewed its cargo handling contracts with Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) in Paris and London.

In France, WFS provides handling services for the airline’s daily Airbus A380 flights from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport as well as offline cargo reception points, handling and domestic trucking at all WFS stations across the country. The two companies began working together in France in 1986.

At Heathrow Airport, WFS handles cargo carried onboard Singapore Airlines’ double daily A380-800 services and its twice-daily 777-300 operations to Singapore.

This cargo capacity is in addition to the airline’s twice-weekly Boeing 747-400F services, which depart Heathrow every Thursday and Saturday.

In addition to these latest contract extensions, WFS already provides cargo handling for Singapore Airlines in Copenhagen, Frankfurt and Stockholm.

WFS director of cargo for sales in Europe, Stéphane Scholving said: “Singapore Airlines is highly respected for the quality of its cargo services and WFS is delighted to be supporting this reputation through the expertise of our handling teams in France, the UK and at other stations in Europe and Scandinavia.

“In Paris, we have worked together for over 30 years, so we clearly understand Singapore Airlines’ service requirements. This is enabling us to continue to grow our relationship with the airline at other points in its international network.”
