WFS Wins First-ever Cargo Handling Contract with JAL

[ February 8, 2016   //   ]

Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) won its first-ever contract with Japan Airlines (JAL). The cargo handling contract was awarded by the airline at New York’s JFK International Airport to manage Japan Airlines’ twice-daily Boeing 777 and 787 services to Tokyo. WFS expect to handle over 15 million kilos of cargo a year for the airline.
“This is a milestone contract for WFS to be working with another of the world’s most respected airlines,” said Sydney Stephenson, Vice President Ground Handling and Cargo, US East Region and Canada at WFS. “This contract follows our move into cargo building 75 at JFK International Airport, which helped to demonstrate to Japan Airlines our commitment to consistent improvement and service quality. We hope this will be the first of many more contracts between the airline and WFS in the future.”
