Air Europa, Spain’s second largest airline, has entered into three-year contract with Worldwide Flight Services (WFS), for cargo handling services at nine major airports across Europe.

Commencing this month, WFS takes the responsibility for handling the airline’s cargo volumes in Amsterdam, Brussels, Frankfurt, London Gatwick, London Heathrow, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Paris Orly, and Milan Malpensa, as well as at Air Europa’s Madrid hub.

Based on the contract, WFS will handle cargo onboard more than 38,000 flights a year from the nine airports, with Air Europa’s volumes in Madrid alone exceeding 50,000 tonnes per annum. All of the airline’s flights from Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and the UK – operated by Boeing 737-800, Airbus A330-200 and Embraer 195 passenger aircraft – fly directly to Madrid, from where its network connects to some 60 cities globally.

Dan Parker, SVP Commercial Cargo – EMEAA at WFS added: “Air Europa has a successful and growing cargo business and we are confident we can deliver the high quality of service at each of these airports to further enhance its reputation with customers and lead to more growth opportunities for the airline.”

In Italy, Air Europa will be handled in WFS’ brand new cargo terminal in Milan, which opened this summer.
