Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has signed up five airlines for passenger, ramp and cargo handling services across the US.

WOW Air has picked WFS to provide ramp, passenger and cargo services for its three Airbus A330-300 flights a week from Dallas Fort Worth to Keflavik International Airport, serving Iceland’s capital city, Reykjavik.

The three-year contract extends WFS’ existing services at Newark and New York JFK for the Icelandic airline.

On 1 June, Brussels Airlines will become the latest member of the Lufthansa Group to commence a handling contract with WFS in New York for thrice-weekly passenger services between New York JFK and Brussels.

June also sees the start of a new three-year ramp-handling contract with Emirates Airlines in Los Angeles supporting daily Airbus A380 operations to Dubai.

In Chicago, WFS has been awarded a three-year passenger service contract by Ethiopian Airlines to serve customers travelling on its three Boeing 787-8 flights each week to Addis Ababa.

From 1 August, WFS will begin a three-year contract in Los Angeles providing ramp services for EVA Air’s 21 Boeing 777-300 flights a week to Taiwan.

WFS Americas chief executive officer, Michael A. Duffy says: “These new contracts continue WFS’ great start to 2018 in the U.S. Not only are these all major customers, they are also existing WFS clients who are growing their business with us at more of their airport gateways, which is a tribute to our reputation for service quality and the performance levels delivered by the WFS team in the U.S. for safety, security and customer service.”
