WFS extends China Airlines contract

China Airlines has extended its 19 year working relationship with Worldwide Flight Services in North America with a new cargo handling contract at Chicago O’Hare International airport.

The new contract brings to five the number of locations in the US where WFS provides services for the airline. WFS won its first contract with China Airlines in North America back in 1998, at New York’s John F Kennedy International airport, where it continues to handle some 47m kilogrammes of cargo a year for the airline. In addition to providing further cargo handling services in Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston, WFS also manages passenger and ramp operations for China Airlines in Honolulu.

Under the terms of this latest agreement, WFS will handle up to seven direct flights a week connecting Chicago with Taipei, and an estimated 56m kilogrammes per year. Overall, WFS will now handle more than 130m kilogrammes of cargo a year for China Airlines in North America.
