Thai Cargo has awarded Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) a five-year cargo handling contract in the UK and Ireland, starting 1 September.
WFS will provide handling for Thai’s double daily Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 from London Heathrow to Bangkok as well as regional cargo handling across its UK and Ireland stations and trucking network connecting each airport location.
The Thai Cargo team in the UK and Ireland will also relocate to WFS’ Building 550 in the World Cargo Centre at Heathrow, where Thai will have a dedicated export facility with direct airside access, which is also conveniently situated adjacent to the UK Border Inspection Post.
WFS vice president UK and Ireland, Patrick Roberts says: “Our ability to provide a dedicated location at Heathrow alongside our stations and trucking network connecting all the major cargo points of the UK and Ireland all contributed to our successful tender for this contract.
“This gives us further opportunity to enhance our growing relationship with Thai Cargo at another major airport gateway in Europe and we look forward to providing the highest quality standards of service, safety and security for Thai and its customers.”
