Egyptair has extended its cargo partnership with Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) by renewing its cargo and mail handling contracts at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Brussels Airport.
The three-year contract, which starts in March 2018, will see WFS handling cargo and mail for the airline’s daily Boeing 737-800 flight from Amsterdam to Cairo as well as its five times a week 737-800 services from Brussels to Cairo.
In 2017, WFS was also chosen to provide trucking services connecting Amsterdam and Brussels with Ostend by Egyptair.
WFS regional vice president, Marc Claesen says: “Providing trucking services for Egyptair in recent months has enabled us to demonstrate the benefits we can offer to our airline customers and our growing relationship has now resulted in WFS now being chosen to provide full cargo and mail handling services at two of the main European airports in Egyptair’s network.”
The cargo handler has had a successful past 12 months in Amsterdam and Brussels with new or extended contracts by customers including Oman Air and Japan Airlines in the Netherlands, and new agreements with MNG Airlines, CAL Cargo Airlines, Japan Airlines and Oman Air in Belgium.
In December, Brussels became the first WFS cargo station in Europe to achieve IATA CEIV Pharma certification.
