The three-year agreement is set to strengthen WFS's relationship with Saudia Cargo at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport and other French airports, as well as at Frankfurt, New York JFK and Washington Dulles airports.
As part of the tender process, Saudia Cargo conducted technical visits to each WFS station to determine the quality of each facility and to meet local WFS staff responsible for managing its cargo operations.
The contract will also bring new cargo handling business to London Heathrow and Manchester airports (from October 1), Brussels airport and Amsterdam Schiphol airport (from November 1).
Said WFS vice president Duncan Watson: 'We are honoured that Saudia Cargo has chosen to extend its relationship with WFS at stations where we already work together in Europe and the US, and to also partner with us for its major cargo operations in Amsterdam, Brussels, London and Manchester.'
