Air Europa extends its WFS freight contracts in Spain
The Spanish airline Air Europa has extended its cargo handling contacts with Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) in Madrid and Barcelona.
The renewed contracts extend the partnership of companies in Spain until the fourth quarter of next year.
Air Europa operates Boeing 787 and 737-800 passenger aircraft from Madrid and Barcelona to destinations in Europe and North and South America.
The air carrier’s freight volumes contributed to the 27,000 tonnes handled at WFS’s freight terminal in Madrid in 2020, as well as hundreds of tonnes in the first five months of its contract in Barcelona.
Air Europa first became a WFS customer in Madrid in 2018. The airlines then partnered with Barcelona in January this year.
Humberto Castro, Managing Director of Cargo Spain at WFS, commented: “WFS continues to make key investments to improve its freight and ground handling services in Spain, with a focus on safety, security, reliability and sustainability. This allows us to land important contracts and develop our existing relationships with leading airline customers such as Air Europa. “
WFS also manages cargo handling operations at Valencia Airport in Spain.
Overall in Spain, WFS serves 60 airlines at Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia airports with warehouse space covering over 35,500 square feet. This includes two cold rooms for temperature controlled freight in its GDP certified hub in Madrid.
