Frankfurt Cargo Services handles first Covid vaccine shipments in support of WFS’ ‘Project Coldstream’

Frankfurt Cargo Services (FCS), a subsidiary of Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has handled its first shipments of Covid-19 vaccines from German biotechnology company BioNTech as the airport gears up to play a prominent role in the global recovery from the coronavirus. Doses of the vaccine were handled at FCS’ facility at Frankfurt’s CargoCity Süd before being loaded into the cargo hold of a Royal Jordanian Airlines’ Airbus A319 bound for Amman.

FCS, the largest airline-independent cargo handler at Frankfurt Airport, has been completing its preparations to support Covid vaccine shipments since last year as part of WFS’ Project Coldstream initiative to coordinate the group’s global response to the anticipated transportation of some 16 billion doses of vaccine.
