WFS adds Boston to SAS stable


Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) has awarded a cargo handling contract to Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) at Boston, its fourth major airport in North America.

The new three-year agreement will see WFS, a member of SATS Group, handle cargo onboard SAS flights on daily Airbus A350 flights to and from the Danish capital, Copenhagen.  

Boston joins Los Angeles, New York JFK, and San Francisco as airports in the US where WFS and SAS have partnered.

WFS expects to handle over 8 million kilos a year on the Boston operations, including large volumes of perishables. 

WFS opened its operation in Boston in 2010 and now operates two cargo terminals at Logan International Airport, offering over 70,000 square feet of cargo handing space. The two facilities process more than 57,000 tonnes of cargo annually for WFS’ 14 airline customers in Boston.

WFS vice-president cargo, Timothy Coggswell, said: “Boston is a prime airport gateway for WFS and SAS in North America. Our ability to provide the airline with the high service standards it expects for its customers, alongside the reputation we have built working with SAS at other major US airports, have earned us this new opportunity to extend our partnership.”
