Posted 23 January 2018 · Add Comment

Egyptair has awarded a new cargo and mail handling contract to Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) in Amsterdam and Brussels, extending its relationship with WFS at both airports.

The three-year contract, which commences in March 2018, will see WFS handling cargo and mail for the airline’s daily Boeing 737-800 from Amsterdam to Cairo as well as its five times weekly 737-800 services from Brussels to Egypt’s capital city. In 2017, Egyptair chose WFS to also provide trucking services connecting Amsterdam and Brussels with Ostend.

Marc Claesen, Regional Vice President at WFS, said: “Providing trucking services for Egyptair in recent months has enabled us to demonstrate the benefits we can offer to our airline customers and our growing relationship has now resulted in WFS now being chosen to provide full cargo and mail handling services at two of the main European airports in Egyptair’s network. We look forward to supporting the airline’s continued growth in Amsterdam and Brussels and to providing the highest levels of safety, security and service.”
