AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC), part of Volga-Dnepr Group, has signed a three-year contract to become the launch customer of Worldwide Flight Services’ (WFS) cargo terminal at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in the USA.
WFS expects to handle some 9,500 tonnes of cargo annually for ABC. The contract extends ABC’s partnership with WFS in North America, with WFS already delivering handling services with the all-cargo airline in New York JFK, George Bush Intercontinental/Houston Airport (IAH), and Dallas/Fort Worth.
“AirBridgeCargo is an important and growing customer of WFS globally. The airline and its customers are the first to benefit from WFS’ investment in a new cargo terminal and handling systems in Atlanta and we are delighted to welcome them as our launch client,” said Mike Simpson, executive vice president Americas at WFS.
WFS opened its operation in Atlanta on May 15, 2021, under a 20-year lease agreement with the airport authority.
