As HLPFI reported here, ABC and its parent organisation Volga-Dnepr signed a ten-year lease agreement with Liège Airport that will see it establish a European hub at the Belgian gateway.

ABC said that construction is progressing at its cargo area; the first 12,500 sq m of warehousing premises will be operational in November 2019.

Barry Nassberg, group chief commercial officer of WFS, said: “We will be bringing the unique WFS experience to the airport, along with our technology, systems, and security processes, and are confident in our ability to help accelerate ABC’s and Liège Airport’s growth ambitions.”

In addition to new warehouse facilities, Liège Airport is also constructing additional aircraft stands for widebody planes. These will have access to the enclosed cargo handling areas through an easily accessible ramp zone.
