WFS and Air China renew cargo contracts in France and the UK

Air China has renewed cargo handling contracts with Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) at airports in France and the United Kingdom for three years.

The contract renewal means WFS will handle 12-14 passenger flights a week at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport connected to Beijing, Chengdu and Shanghai, and 10 freighter flights a week to Chengdu and Hangzhou.

The Paris contract provides cargo customers with access to WFS’s national trucking network in France and offline handling services at more than 10 regional airports in France.

In the UK, Air China operates 24 flights a week to London Heathrow Airport, providing connections to and from Beijing, Chengdu and Shanghai.

At London Gatwick Airport, Air China operates 14 flights a week to Beijing and Shanghai.

WFS also provides countrywide road transport services and offline handling at other major regional airports in the UK for Air China.

John Batten, CEO Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia, said: “Air China is a major customer of WFS across our international network. Our strong global partnership continues to grow, based on our ability to meet all the airline’s service and growth expectations.”
