WOW Air has chosen WFS to provide ramp, passenger and cargo services for its three Airbus A330-300 flights each week from Dallas/Fort Worth to Keflavik International airport. The three-year contract extends WFS’ existing services for the airline at Newark and New York JFK.

On June 1, SN Brussels will become the latest member of the Lufthansa Group to commence a handling contract with WFS in New York, where WFS will manage passenger services for the airline’s three flights a week to Brussels.

June will also see the start of a new three-year ramp handling contract with Emirates in Los Angeles, supporting its daily Airbus A380 operations to Dubai. WFS already provides handling services for Emirates in Chicago and Houston.
