Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has extended its cargo handling partnerships with Turkish Airlines at Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) and Houston airport (IAH).
In Dallas, WFS has commenced handling services for the airline’s four Boeing 777 passenger flights to Istanbul. The new contract at IAH will begin in March and will see the local team handle three to fours freighter flights per week plus daily B777 passenger services to the Turkish city.
Overall, WFS expects to handle some 31,000 tonnes of cargo each year for Turkish Airlines at the two airports.
“These contracts extend our existing cooperation in Houston, while Dallas/Fort Worth is a new station for WFS to provide service to Turkish Airlines,” said Mike Simpson, Executive Vice President Americas at WFS.
WFS handles over 245,000 tonnes of cargo annually for airline clients in Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston and provides warehouse and freighter ramp handling at both airports.
In September 2021, the ground handler acquired US handler, Pinnacle Logistics, and added road feeder services to its portfolio, connecting Dallas and Houston and other major cargo gateways in North America.
