Thai Cargo signs handling deal with WFS in the UK and Ireland

Thai Cargo has awarded Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) a five-year cargo handling contract in the UK and Ireland.

Effective on 1 September, WFS will provide handling for the carrier’s double-daily Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 flights from London Heathrow to Bangkok as well as regional cargo handling across its UK and Ireland stations and trucking network connecting each airport location.

The Thai Cargo team in the UK and Ireland will also relocate to WFS’ Building 550 in the World Cargo Centre at Heathrow, where Thai will have a dedicated export facility with direct air-side access.

The location is also conveniently situated adjacent to the UK Border Inspection Post (BIP) at Heathrow Airport.

WFS vice president for the UK and Ireland, Patrick Roberts said: “We are extremely proud that THAI Cargo chose WFS to support its continued growth in the UK and Ireland.

“Our ability to provide a dedicated location at Heathrow alongside our stations and trucking network connecting all the major cargo points of the UK and Ireland all contributed to our successful tender for this contract.

“This gives us further opportunity to enhance our growing relationship with THAI Cargo at another major airport gateway in Europe and we look forward to providing the highest quality standards of service, safety and security for THAI and its customers.”
