Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has reinforced its position as the largest provider of ground and cargo handling services at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport by winning a new three-year contract from Qantas.

WFS will handle some 3.4 million kilos annually for Australia’s flag carrier, which operates seven Airbus 380 passenger flights per week from the airport to Sydney as well as a weekly Boeing 747-400 Freighter service.

The new agreement covers ground handling services for Qantas’ passenger operations and cargo and ramp handling for its freighter flights. WFS already provides cargo handling services for the airline in Los Angeles.

WFS’s client base of leading international and domestic airline customers at Dallas/Fort Worth also includes AirBridgeCargo Airlines, Air China, Air France-KLM, Avianca, British Airways, Cargolux, China Airlines, Emirates Airline, Frontier Airlines, Lufthansa Cargo, Korean Air, Nippon Cargo Airlines and USPS.

WFS senior vice president, sales & business development, Ray Jetha said: “Qantas’ decision to award us this important new contract reflects the reputation we have established as the premier service provider for leading airlines at Dallas/Fort Worth due to our operational processes, priority focus on safety and security, business transparency and technological advances.”
