Singapore Airlines has renewed its cargo handling contracts with Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) in Paris Charles de Gaulle and London Heathrow.
In France, WFS provides handling services for the airline’s daily A380 flights from Paris Charles de Gaulle 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 London Heathrow, WFS handles cargo carried onboard Singapore Airlines’ double daily A380-800 services and its twice-daily B777-300 operations to Singapore. This cargo capacity is in addition to the airline’s twice-weekly B747-400 freighter 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.
Stéphane Scholving, director of Cargo Sales Europe at WFS, stated: “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.”
