Ground handling services provider Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has announced the opening of its third cargo handling facility at Copenhagen Airport.

Called Terminal 3 cargo building, the new 3,700m² facility is expected to further increase WFS’ handling infrastructure at the airport.

Currently, WFS handles carried onboard passenger, freighter services and more than 100,000 tonnes of cargo annually at the airport.

WFS opened its first Scandinavian handling operation in Copenhagen in 2008, and established itself as the largest cargo handler at the airport, serving more than 30 airline companies.

Additionally, WFS offers cargo handling services for more than 125 offline carriers.

WFS Scandinavia managing director Thomas Egeland said: “Copenhagen is a very progressive airport with a strong commitment to supporting its cargo customers.

“Since 2008, WFS has also demonstrated its confidence in the Danish and regional air cargo market through our continued investment and expansion, and we will continue to play a lead role in the growth of the airport and the airlines who fly here. We see a great future.”

The company added that the original 4,600m² cargo warehouse terminal was expanded with the addition of a 3,000m² Terminal 2 facility in 2010.

Later in 2019, the ground handling services provider invested in a new GDP-certified Pharma facility to increase its warehouse capacity with additional 1,500m² area.

The additional space is used by WFS to cater to the requirements of a group of life science companies in the Greater Copenhagen area

Last month, WFS was awarded cargo handling contracts by All Nippon Airways and Tunisian airline Nouvelair in the UK.
