WFS to handle cargo for Qatar Airways at Stockholm Arlanda


Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has won a three year cargo handling contract with Qatar Airways in Stockholm for its Doha flights.

The airline operates 13 flights a week between the Swedish capital and Doha, and WFS is expecting to handle 12,000 tonnes a year for Qatar Airways at its cargo centre at Stockholm Arlanda Airport, which opened in 2012.

WFS regional vice president, Marc Claesen says: “We are delighted to now be working with Qatar Airways at our two hubs in Scandinavia and at other WFS stations in Europe.”

“Winning this contract proves the value and strength of the WFS network, which helps us to build growing relationships with major airlines based on the high quality of our safety, security and service performance.”

The new contract extends WFS’ relationship with Qatar Airways in Europe, where it provides cargo handling services for the airline in Madrid, Barcelona, Frankfurt and Paris.
