Air China Cargo

Air China has extended its cargo handling contracts with Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) in France and the UK by an additional three years.

The contract extension covers handling at Paris, Heathrow and Gatwick airports.

In Paris, WFS will handle cargo carried onboard 12 to 14 passenger flights per week connecting the French capital with Beijing, Chengdu, and Shanghai and 10 weekly freighter services linking Paris with Chengdu and Hangzhou.

Additionally, the contract in Paris, which also includes ramp handling, enables Air China and its cargo customers to benefit from WFS’ national trucking network in France and offline handling services at more than 10 regional French airports.

At Heathrow, Air China operates 24 passenger flights per week carrying cargo to and from Beijing, Chengdu and Shanghai, and is also contracted to provide cargo handling services for the airline’s 14 flights which connect London Gatwick with Beijing and Shanghai each week.

WFS also provides countrywide road transport services and offline handling at other major regional airports for Air China in the UK.

John Batten, chief executive for Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia (EMEAA) at WFS, said: “Air China is a major customer of WFS across our international network.

“Our strong global partnership continues to grow, based on our ability to meet all the airline’s service and growth expectations.”
