Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has extended its cargo handling partnerships with Turkish Airlines at Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston.
In Dallas it has started handling services for the airline’s four Boeing 777 passenger flights to Istanbul. The new contract at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport will begin in March and will cover 3-4 freighter flights per week plus daily B777 passenger services to Istanbul. WFS already has a freighter ramp handling contract with the airline in Houston.
WFS expects to handle some 31,000 tonnes of cargo a year for the carrier at the two airports.
Executive vice president Americas at WFS, Mike Simpson, said: “These contracts extend our existing cooperation in Houston, while Dallas/Fort Worth is a new station for WFS to provide service to Turkish Airlines.”
WFS handles over 245,000 tonnes of cargo annually in the two airports and provides warehouse and freighter ramp handling. WFS’ acquisition of US handler, Pinnacle Logistics, in September 2021 has also added road feeder services to its portfolio, connecting Dallas and Houston and other major cargo gateways in North America.
