Worldwide Flight Services’ (WFS) investment in state-of-the-art facilities as part of its long-term commitment to Brussels Airport has earned the world’s largest cargo handling company a new five-year contract with Air France KLM Martinair Cargo.
Under the terms of the agreement, which commences this month, WFS will provide a total handling solution including cargo, mail and truck handling, and services for special products, for some 30,000 tonnes annually.
Winning this prestigious Air France KLM Martinair Cargo contract comes as WFS prepares for the opening of its new 25,000 sq m Building 835 at Brussels Airport. The new facility is part of a €100 million investment by Brussels Airport in the cargo zone at the airport and will incorporate 3,000 square metres of cooling facilities for pharma and perishables shipments, a covered airside staging area and outside container storage. As part of WFS’ global commitment to the highest levels of safety and security, it will also be equipped with full CCTV coverage, x-ray and other security technologies.
